Re: Creative Portraits: Red Headed Beauty

photomaster, thank you, btw, for posting the image. lovely picture, lovely woman.

and i also very much like your original rendition. you have a combination there, of sharpness and softness which i find very appealing.

and, thanks for the link. i tried it out. it seems to only work on photoshop and not psp. it crashed psp when i ran it from there. seems like a good piece of software. simple interface, very intuitive and did a nice job on the image i tried with it.

I've wanted time to play with this ever since it was posted. Finally found a few free minutes. Thanks for sharing Photomaster. It is a great photo.

Magenta hair.

Still experimenting with various simplication techniques. Cat (other forum) started a theme thread concerning Gradients which I see lot's of potential for certain abstract renderings. Used a multi-color gradient to start things off and did some other things too.

Re: Creative Portraits: Red Headed Beauty

Decided to do one more slightly different version showing more detail and shadowing.

Re: Creative Portraits: Red Headed Beauty

It's been ages since I've played with Impressionist, forgot how much fun it it is!
this is 4 layers starting with a large chalky brush then progressivly shrinking the brush and masking out unwanted detail.
