Re: A bit of a character

Hello Peter...
Another nice pic you have found for us to paint...Thanks...
I really like the look of your rendition....Its beautifully done...So is your second Turban man....maybe its time for you to do a tutorial for us???????

Palms....Great effect...lots of detail and bright colors..

Alex...Really unusual and great effect...

Steve....Like this...lovely details and colors too!!!

I painted mine in Painter,background with Jeremys mish mash brush and the rest with different oil brushes...Into Photoshop for lighting and a frame action.

Patricia....

Re: A bit of a character

Been doing so many mosaics and oils of late, that I decided that I better brush up on my watercolors. Attached is a crop. Here's the complete rendering.

Maybe when I have worked out exactly what it is I am doing, plus I don't know what to call this style (First time I have been associated with style of any sort).
So far I seem to have found at least 4 ways to get similar results, they all involve using noise reduction a h*ll of a lot, shapenining and blurring with the brush.

Peter you know how to make a person's day.

Seems, however, that I learn something new everyday. And I guess that's a good thing.

Great picture, Peter! Where is this guy from?
Here's my version, done with a faint layer of LucisArt, another of Cutout, Buzz, Contrast Mask and Impressionist on Old Master.
