Re: Creative portraits: Great baby photos by Brand

Hi, Brandi

I'm new to smudge painting as well. It can be hard! I try to paint in the direction of the area. For example, on her cheeks, I did small strokes, but on the dress I did longer strokes in the direction the dress was going, and on her hair, I just "combed" in the direction of the hair growth. Sorry I didn't leave her leg in the painting, but once I got to pulling the dress out, it just didn't look right.


Don't give up!

Cindy

Brandi,

Cool Re: Creative portraits: Great baby photos by Brand

Here is my quick take. Combo of back and forth between Photoshop & Painter. Comments Welcome. Beautiful portrait was fun to do! (Just picked a name that seemed to fit the baby)

Re: Creative portraits: Great baby photos by Brand

Hello from Texas
This is my first post, so Im not sure exactly what I am doing. I'm new I just found this website last night. I am so excited to be able to learn . I'm new to photoshop also. I have just been learning as I go. I have ALOT to learn.
This baby is adorable. I tried several things with the photographs. Including making a brush out of one and stamping the other.

Welcome to RetouchPRO. You did just fine on your first one.

For being new to Photoshop, your results are very, very impressive. I especially like the way you did the colors.

I look forward to seeing more of your creativity in the future.
