Creative Portraits: Beauty from India

Well I hope you'll like this one as much as I did.

First one lots of smoothing. a small adjust with Lucis (a new toy I got).
Second carried on with Impressionist, then duped changed mode to overlay, ran Bas Relief filter. changed opacity down to about 50% as was a little harsh. this was still too much so added a layer mask and added render difference clouds to soften the effect a little.

Looking forward to some real crackers here, enjoy.

Peter

Re: Creative Portraits - Indian Beauty

Thanks Peter another nice image
this is a bit of a cross between pwl and smudge ( not quite cspringers illustrated look but maybe one day ! ! ! ! )
decided to leave what i think is a hanky of some sort in her top as i to have been guilty of doing that

Re: Creative Portraits - Indian Beauty

danny,

along with lqqker, i concur. and i can see why you didnt post it on RP directly. all those great paint strokes would have been lost or subdued.

Ditto from me Danny. Just how did you get all that detail into 97.76 kB.

Palms I think your right it is a hanky, I was too interested in the rest to even notice that one. (DOH)
