Peter - I like your rendition. Nice job.

This is a combination of several plugins, PS filters and some hand painting. Plugins used are Nik Color effex, redfield sketch, Xero, AE and noise combined with several layers.

Re: Creative Portraits: Another Pensive Redhead

i never really liked doing stuff like this in photoshop before, but you can get some cool looking pics for family and friends and stuff. this took a whopping 2 min to do, so maybe i'll start playing around with these effects a little more.

thanks.

Re: Creative Portraits: Another Pensive Redhead

thanks Palms1....

i duped layer, read DannyRaphael's tips on how to use the art history brush, took a decent size brush and went over the image very quickly, think the settings were tight short, 100% opacity, area: 10pix, tolerance: 0%

i use a tablet so i brushed over the image quickly,.....then applied a canvas texture.
