Re: Creative Portraits - Indian Beauty

Pixel Trash set to Value; copied the original on Top layer and set it to Saturation (adjusted Opacity to taste). Opened it up in PS and set to @Wetter2 (Paint Engine) and added canvas (well I also used gamut replacement to enhance the color/sat of the piece).

Here's the full version.

Nothing special... just ran it through Photoshop's File > Save for Web dialog and specified 99Kb in the Optimize > To File Size dialog.

The image is in fact posted at RP in the "Snap Art" thread here.

Thanks to each of you for the kind words on my interpretation. I was pleasantly surprised at what I thought was a pretty decent looking oil painting effect based on Snap Art's "pastel" filter. LOL

Re: Creative Portraits - Indian Beauty

This is a gorgeous photo. Do we get to credit the photographer and tell him/her how good it is?

I had fun experimenting with a boatload of techniques. I hope ya'll like the result as much as I've enjoy the results of others.

Janet, I'm pretty certain that this is from the "old" El Dorado site.

Peter - do you have a new link, or did you have this image stashed away?

Ro you are exactly right. I downloaded quite a few before it disappeared. I only wish I had taken more.

Re: Creative Portraits - Indian Beauty

Thought this one deserved a bit of AHB.
(... and I just love watching the little brush scribble away all by itself.)

Re: Creative Portraits - Indian Beauty

Beautiful picture! Thanks for posting it.
I did this one with a faint layer of Lucisart, some smudging and color shifts.

Re: Creative Portraits - Indian Beauty

Lightly accent the subject, too much salt will ruin the soup...

Re: Creative Portraits - Indian Beauty

first visit for a while so I thought i would have a try,
Lightened it with shadow illuminator, sketch filter, snap art and messed about with the layers and opacity.
