Creative Portraits: Woman - "The Finger"

Was unsure about this one until I started messing with it.
Its got something but can't put my finger on it.

Your turn - sorry if this is a little soon after the last one.

Re: The Finger

Another lady....another abundance of hair. A Rogaine dealer could go broke here.

Re: The Finger

I'm sure by now you all have noticed how my "Photo-Based Art" contributions tend to be on the "realistic" side.

However since I love b&w ink drawings and paintings I thought it would be interesting to experiment with this photo.

First adjusted the levels and color then used the "stamp" plug in in CS2.

A CherylH's Finger Paint one ...

...watercolor (felt appropriate since the topic is the finger). I added Paint Engine with Watercolor2 preset too. Lots of healing brush work to clean it up. I can't tell you the preprocessing since it was intense (i.e., wouldn't be able to reproduce it if I could; lol). Attached is a lower quality crop. Below is a link to the full high quality rendering.

Re: The Finger

Very Haloweenish, Palms. I would not like to see that peering in my window.
Also had a go at this strange looking lady using pens in Painter.
