I especially like this one. Hope you enjoy making it into a sketch, painting or whatever you like.

Hellllooooo, anybody home?

Hmmm. I seem to be alone here.

A Twisted Brush sketch. (My sketch technique is a work in progress, I know.)

Thanks, Danny, for the pic.

Re: Creative portraits: Jessica

Nice work everyone - some real nice sketches here.

A bit tricky to put some colour into this, but I had a shot.
Usual stuff. PS -> Painter -> PS

GREYCStoration smudge.

Amplified the colors there using a cool GIMP trick. Dup for total of three layers, Desaturate the Top layer and set to Grain Extract, merge down and set to Grain Merge. Now duplicate this new layer til happy. Anyway, also did some selective colorizing of the hair (since I don't like psychedelic hair color; ) after running GREYCStoration. Here's the hirez, high quality version. Attached is a reduced size lower quality sample.
