>> Special Challenge - a Tribute to Julia <<

The subject of this (now closed) challenge, Julia, died unexpectedly in March 2007. She was survived by her children, 3-year-old Andrew and 9-month-old Aurora.

The creations in this thread were submitted at the request of RetouchPRO member Janet Petty, a close friend of Julia's family. Janet wanted to create a memorial of Julia for the children.

Re: >> Special Challenge - a Tribute to Julia <<

Very sorry for the family and their loss Danny. May do a few later, but thought I would start things off with a wc b/w sketch.

Edit:

Revamped everything after a better read of Danny's request. Hard to reproduce in the large what I did in the small, so I'm keeping close to the original motif with a pencil. Here's the full hires version.

OK; one more before going to the store.

Edit:

A little easier to reproduce, but I still preplaced the smaller version. Here's the big version.

I'm having a problem downloading the files. I'm not getting a downloaded .TIF file, I'm getting a QuickTime movie file. ?

Swampy do a right click and "save link as" that should get you going.

Impasto this time. Some mods to the Impressionist Vegetable Paint preset. Some smudging and such too.

On the page with the image links, RIGHT-CLICK the image link and you should get the option to SAVE TARGET AS. This will let you save the image and bypass the Quick-Time movie.
