Re: Creative Portraits: Another Pensive Redhead

I did a B&W of her. Now, why would anyone start with an image of a pretty girl with red hair and turn it into a B&W? Then answer is simply - I haven't a clue.

Re: Creative Portraits: Another Pensive Redhead

Oops. Seems like I'm late for the AHB party, so here's three AHB renditions to make up for lost time.

1) A thin brush that will (or should) follow the outlines of the original;
2) A pencil in 4 layers with 4 different directions;
3) Chalks.

All done in 4 layers with varying brush thickness, with soft-light blending to increase the colours and generous helpings of USM.

Re: Creative Portraits: Another Pensive Redhead

It has truly been an inspiration to see all of the marvelous work done by ya'll on this thread. I finally decided to take a turn using a tutorial by the very talented artist we all know as Trimoon.

Thank you Steve for yet another superb tutorial.

Janet
