Creative Portraits: A nice pose

Thought I'd post this as I hadn't done one for a while.
Found this at the old Eldorado site before it disappeared.

I've posted the original one here for you all

A lower quality (100K) one attached her if you wish to use that.

My Attempt at something

And here is a better quality one of mine

Palms if you read this I'd love to see one of your smudges I think the hair would come out great.

Swampy how about one of your pattern stamp masterpieces

Anyway everyone just enjoy doing any style you wish.

Peter

Added a whole not more strokes.

My poor mouse finger. Anyway, I did use your original images (higher quality the better in my book). I used Xero's Pastellize filter for the outlines. Then I used Mehdi's Fine Threshold filter to make it dark. I then added a whole lot of strokes mainly to fill in the voids in the hair. I then set the result of the layer to Value (yes all in GIMP) and did some Xero Supersmooth filtering on the base layer. Flattened and did some additional color enhancements. Here's the full high quality hi-res version.

Cool Re: A nice pose

Gave it a quick go. I think it deserves a 40's pinup style look. Sort of works.

Re: A nice pose

A combination of sketch, paint, and some color adjustments thrown in. One of my "sweep the hard drive" attempts.
