Re: Creative Portraits: Therese age 8!

Lovely photo to work with. Thanks Patricia. Here's a soft chalk version, using plaid texture in Painter.

Nice interpretation, Margaret. How did you do the outside edge effect? I especially like that.

Heh Danny and thank you. The outside edge was done in Painter using the builtin plugins - click on the little plug under the layers pallette. Choose Tear - then you can select color, margin, strength etc. The Burn choice also gives an interesting effect.

Re: Creative Portraits: Therese age 8!

Another attempt.
Photoshop, lotsa filters (buzz, cutout, paint daubs, watercolor), merging. Most of the filters are not visible in the final pict.

Therese,

Thank you. Very nice picture, fun to play with. Looking at Kraig's animation I get a distinct impression that Therese is no longer 8.
