Craig has the penny finally dropped? Most of us have known that for ages and look forward to both yours and Lyle's input and inspiration

hope both of you carry on for a long time yet ( unless of course you run out of plugin's/filters )

Hey Craig; did this one around the same time as the one above. Little deeper engraving.

Just a judgement call Craig; didn't want to cut in too deep and make this beautiful face convert to bad. Still, should have did a few detail steps to add some contrast.
it's fine, lyle. my request/suggestion is likewise, just a judgement call

palms, as long as there are freebie filters...

Re: Creative Portraits: Red Headed Beauty

this is such a good photo, very attractive, that i had another go or two at it. this is 'refractive painting'. the idea is to turn the image into something more glassine. it's a little tricky. i use filter forge for this and combine results from there using paint shop pro. this technique tends to produce quite a bit of noise and artifacting, so i also have to clean it up by hand.

Re: Creative Portraits: Red Headed Beauty

thanks, mining art!

here's one from my 'silver surfer' filter. this is a combo of a couple different results with that filter.
