Thank you Gunner I am taking it that you mean the second one i done so if it isn't that one just let me know

As far as i remember it was a sketch layer ( swampy's line art version, which i have made into a action for ease of use ) then used the history brush at about 30% opacity, I probably would of sharpened, then dropped a texture layer over set to multiply

I finally took the time to diddle around with this one to see if I have improved very much. I actually dare to submit my two efforts to this great community of people. Dare is the operative word, that's why my smiley is always the one sucking a pacifier.

Gunner, those are both wonderful. I love the texture on the first one. What did you use?

It's called "Feathers". I will put a copy in here. Don't forget to change it back to the .psd format. It should work well as it was only 272kb, and now it is 197kb.

Re: Creative Portraits - Short and not curly

Thanks, Gunner! Feathers is actually a texture that ships with PS. It is such a strong repeat pattern that I never thought to use it on a painting, but it works so well on yours!

Swampy,
I guess it depends on the individual setting used in it, no?

Yes it does, Gunner. I've used it a couple times for matting around a piece of digital artwork (usually at a fairly good size scale). It was just so effective in your piece.
