Creative portraits: Keiser's Niece on the Beach

Since I have worked on the photos of others while learning, thought I would provide one. Have fun!

Re: Creative portraits: Keiser's Niece on the Beach

Did I say I really liked this pic? [had to take a shot at it before going to dentist...]

Tools used...
* Photoshop
...resize image
...remove sail (top left)
...apply Impressionist and Akvis sketch plugins
...sharpening, cloning, color and tone adjustments, edges
* Corel Painter (Oil Pastels > Chunky Oil Pastel in clone mode)

---------------------

Thanks for the May 1 inspiration.

Re: Creative portraits: Keiser's Niece on the Beach

I had to have a try at this, and then one thing led to another.
I smudge painted the girl, and then I used a copy of the image and applied a ocean ripple filter to it and then used an mask to paint back in the smudge layer.
I'm not totally happy with the tail, but I like the idea.

Well, I decided to try my hand at a water color. I cannot remember all my steps. I guess I will have to start writing it down.
