Wow Janet; fantastic work on the illustration. Really like the treatment of the eyes and the bluish, off-white dress.

Re: Creative Portraits - Lotsa Curls

I've been playing around with Cybia Colorworks Filters,photoshop noise,angled strokes and crosshatch. Also used Eyelash Brushes from either deviant ART Eyelash Brushes II by shakealicious or Eyelash Brushes by RetouchPRO's own Flora.

It's feeling a lot like winter. I used Cybia Colorworks plus PS crosshatch and angled strokes.

Playing with Art History Brush again.
Though I may have overdone the reds here.

Re: Creative Portraits - Lotsa Curls

Unusual portrait...
I did mine mostly with smudging and sharpening.

Re: Creative Portraits - Lotsa Curls

Hi All,

With the catchlights in the centre of the eyes, and the unsmiling look - there's something a bit menacing in this portrait. I tried to make her a bit more approachable.

a watery colour effort here - mainly using PSPX scripts.
It may be the menace which makes this a striking picture?

Great imagination from everyone has made this a great thread.

Regards to all,
Mitch.
