Re: Courtney

The attitude oozing from Courtney's face just makes these pictures. Wonderful work Joe, Peter and Palms. Thank you for reviving this thread.

Re: Courtney

Palms, that is lovely!

Peter, that is a very interesting sketch effect. Quite original. I think it looks like it could have been burned into wood (except for the whitish background).

You inspired me on your sketchy look, Peter...

The paper effect really sells it. How did you do the paper?

Re: Courtney

I used the whole kitchen sink on this one...
* Akvis > Sketch
* Andromeda > Screens
* Photoshop > Glowing Edges, Colored Pencil, Gaussian Blur, Unsharp Mask
* Virtual Painter > Oils
* Alien Skin Splat > Resurface
* Impressionist plugin

Whew!
