Re: Creative Portraits: Woman Deep in Thought

In Photoshop...
* Levels to open up shadows
* Oversharpened considerably

Over to Painter
* Cloning using brushes from the Chalk and Artists Oils groups
* Impressionist > Charcoal > Default

Back to Photoshop
* Smudged a bit
* Sharpened a bit
* Added edge

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

If nothing else it IS colorful.

Re: Creative Portraits: Woman Deep in Thought

i treated this more as a photograph than a painting. so, i mostly retouched, re-lit, re-colored and re-everything

Superb image and some excellent work already. My offering uses the Impressionist Plugin.

Re: Creative Portraits: Woman Deep in Thought

Great portrait study. I used Studio Artist for most of the painting, then back to PS to dodge & burn and saturate. I also added some layers of color in overlay and color modes. I used a Trimoon paper texture and put a water color edge around the picture.
