Re: Just 4 Palms

lkroll - that has to be one of your best to date
Pavel - nice work hope the curls didn't cause too much strain on the brush hand
keiser - Looks good, but a little on the small size to see properly
Lonk - can I look over your shoulder next time you do one of these
Palms - Very nice, I prefer the colour one, more detail, I'm a detail freak at times.
Photomaster - as ever excellent, maybe I could watch you at work as well
Steve - what can I say to that, its real smooth man, like it.

You see the curls wern't that bad after all!

Peter

Re: Creative portraits: Just 4 Palms - More curly

I sort of goaded Palms into doing a smudge of this one, and a good job of it was done. So I had to try in myself (better late than never).
Its a little rough, but I think I'm getting there a little.
Thanks Palms, I know now what you went through with this one.

Nice one Peter, great work on the face and hair, looking back on mine i dont think it was a smudge, as such but c springers illustrated look ( which involves some smudging ) might have to have another go soon )

Re: Creative portraits: Just 4 Palms - More curly

I always liked this one...

I started with Mike Warren's Illustration Action, then applied some Impressionist plugin effects and ePaperpress.com actions for the borders.
