Re: Creative Portraits - Short and not curly

.. another one you had stored away from the old Russian "Eldorado" site?

Nice to play with, though.
Thanks

Thanks for the play Peter.

Re: Creative Portraits - Short and not curly

There's a free program in development called fotosketcher - seems nice.

Here's three outputs unmodified (the newspaper like one is heavy compression to make file size, and looks a bit crappy because of it).

Fotosketcher would be a good start for an underpainting style beginning (cutie 1), or maybe a book illustration (cutie 2). The pencil one, cutie 3, has some dark lining on it I don't like - this needs fixing before that preset is useful.

All in all, worthwhile lookiong at.
