Re: Creative Portraits: Ali at Dankoff's

Ikroll great chalking there but i think i would of liked the background all black ! and the second one is a cool illustration

great painting Steve which software did you use for it ?

Swampy a very delicate touch there, I keep saying i want to experiment with a chalk look but i just dont find the time !

Alcar gorgeous great crop looks very classy

Peter they are both great but the second one is excellent i am quite jealous

Secretagent that is a nice technique look forward to seeing some more

Ol baldy super again ( look at the second one bigger to get a better look at the texture) and again a great crop

Crazyfly interesting effect that i like it ! !

SkyDog- very interesting effect
Gilbert- great smudge, as always
Danny- She's a lovely little lady. My oldest is not even quite 6 yet, and I am dreading the whole text thing!

I'm a little late to the party, but here's my attempt.

Anyway, I liked this one... Nikon D300, 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 in case anyone cares.

Have fun being creative with my angel (usually).
Hey Ol Fuddy-Duddy,
It will get worse before it gets better. The next eight years will turn every hair on your head white, but enjoy it while you can.

Glad you like it but I have almost no merit as all I did was choose the position of the two sliders in the Flat Median plugin.

I love this filter, you can easily do instant "Vermeerizations" with it.

Of all that has been posted, those I prefer, apart from mine, are yours.

The photograph is exceptionally good IMO and I find that many of the stylizations have actually destroyed or diminished the feel the original picture was conveying.
