Re: Creative portraits: Long & Curly

Hi All,
I found this pic some time ago, and this is my version I made then. I can't remember all my steps other than I put a new background layer in.

This is such a striking image - which probably explains why each version on this thread is so good.

Two blurred layers (one color and one b&w), a b&w layer with chalk & charcoal filter, one b&w layer using find edges filter, and creative use of blending modes. I was experimenting to see what I could come up with.

Re: Creative portraits: Long & Curly

Experimenting time yet again, although it was good going through all the brilliant work that has been done already on this one

those where the days when Peter used to find some superb photo's for us to play around with, unless he comes up with a new one i suppose i will have to go keep going through the old ones ( mind you there are some brilliant ones there )

GET the HINT Peter ?

Re: Creative portraits: Long & Curly

Really liked palms' B/W version (though, I think that without the arm it would have been a little better).

I went a bit dramatic.
Basically: crop, smudge and blend.
