Re: Smudge - maybe??

Re: Smudge - maybe??

I hope 'SHE' isn't lurking here.. Tis my sincere desire to escape her wrath!! (for I have tried the elusive Smudge and failed!)

I was thinking about expanding beyond your traditional portrait and/or restoration, retouching and colorizing... So I thought about when I first started using Photoshop, back when most of my work looked like this!

Hmmm... this almost looks like my smudge attempt.. Maybe I have NOT come along as far as I had hoped!!

Actually, this is just my feeble attempt at trying to make Peter Smile..

I have visited a web site tonight that you all might find interesting. He turns a colored image into a 1940's era Marlene Deitrich type shot, giving full step by step details.

It is located at this URL
