Golden Girl.

Cool capture for play Peter. Simple flow here. Used Toadies Metalwork set to Overlay (duplicate layer of course) for the bulk of the aniso. I then followed it up with Xero's Supersmooth filter. Here's the full hirez version. Attached is a lower quality reduced size version.

Re: Just 4 Palms

Peter, thank you for another great photo. Love you sketch.

Blenders in Painter, IMP in Photoshop.

Palms, I don't think I share your passion for hair. Not after manually going through all those curls.

Re: Just 4 Palms

Great works everyone
Pavel the hair isnt to bad and helps pass away our awful weather
Couldnt make my mind up about a colour version or a black & white I did try a threshold as i think it would look good but lost patience with it a bit

Fun picture to work with. Painted in Corel Painter using the Thick Wet Oils brush. Finished in PSCS2 with highlights and shadows and color adjustment and sharpening.
