Guess no one was able to coax a smile from Jinny.

Oh well.

Re: Creative Portraits: Jinny in the Garden

Thanks for the play Danny. Been really trying to simplify my renderings of late to the point where no trace of photography is noticeable. Results usually means abstraction, but I hope this one works anyway. Sorry about the low quality (22%).

Re: Creative Portraits: Jinny in the Garden

Hopefully i managed a smile from Jinny.
Really weird here, this is my first post on our new computer, lots to get used to flat screen for one, firefox for another, and then vista, havent got round to putting software on yet still using the old one for the time being ,

Re: Creative Portraits: Jinny in the Garden

Jinny didn't look at all happy in the garden so i took her out and tried to cheer her up...
crooped, hue and sat altered in Photoshop, painted, then back to ps for slight selective sharpening

I thank you Snook.

Used mostly Paint Shop Pro with Lucis Art and did some layer blending.
