Creative Portraits: Long and Wavy

Okay I haven't post one for a long long time.
So here's one from the long departed El Dorado site for you all to enjoy (I hope)
I've been experimenting with making my own brushes
Is that quick enough for Mrs P ????

Hey Peter; really like your sketch. I've been in that sketchy mood of late too so did mine in color. Left a crop to keep Danny happy (and just in case the original get's lost over time).

Re: Creative Portraits: Long and Wavy

I had a go with this, but I find that my results are over 100k board limit, and the only way to reduce is to either save as 30% jpg quality (bad picture) or make the image 640 x 480 ish in size = effect not visible too well.

Will this board ever increase the allowed image size? 250k would be good.

Could always add an embedded link (like I did) FB. Get a benefit if you donate some money too (200K); think that time's about to come up again for renew for me too.
