Re: Creative Portraits: Red Headed Beauty

I had no idea what I was doing, Craig. I just ran a soft pencil in auto mode in Painter. It was when I brought it back to PS and started playing with blending modes that this effect popped up. I can't put my finger on it, but I kinda liked the effect too.

Re: Creative Portraits: Red Headed Beauty

Unfortunately a very good tutorial of this nature is no longer available at Nikoncafe.com.

I found this one by googling: photoshop smudge painting video

http://video.aol.com/video-detail/id/176729780

Pretty basic, but a start in the right direction.

Re: Creative Portraits: Red Headed Beauty

Wow, there are some very creative and beautiful renditions here. As a reward for your creativity here is a little gift. Check out Imagenomic's Portraiture plug-in here: http://www.imagenomic.com/download.aspx
for a free trial download. It is a bit pricey but when you see what it can do you may want to take the plunge. IMHO, no semi-serious retoucher should be without it. It is the slickest plug-in I have ever seen. For me it took my work to a whole new level that I never thought possible.
