Re: Creative Portraits: Another Pensive Redhead

oh man... I forgot how amazing the AHB can be....

First one was with two layers of AHB, bottom for the background.... just crazy brush and loose curls, one above using a few weird brushes on dab. added a slight contour layer above it.

Second was justa bunch of Impressionist passes... playing around.

Re: Creative Portraits: Another Pensive Redhead

I enjoyed viewing all of the great creations. I create this one with Microsoft Image Composer and techniques that I developed over the years..

Welcome to the PA forum, slidefoot. Very nice result you achieved here.

Image Composer is one of my favorite apps -- not because I use it, but because my favorite plugin, Impressionist, was packaged with it

Keep the great artwork coming. Your style is a breath of fresh air.

I screwed this one up from the get go. Oh well at least I fought the urge to flip it. That's got to be progress.

Re: Creative Portraits: Another Pensive Redhead

Nice work here! In my experience the trick with adding strong artistic effects to a portrait is to avoid losing the eyes (especially) and other facial features in artsy mush, unless you are purposely trying to erase identity.
