Another Man's Portrait

Since you all enjoyed painting my previous post, I thought you might as well like this one:

Mine is done with Impressionist

Well yes of course, but the blown out hair highlights gave me trouble, so just made them disappear.
Though I may have gone a little overboard with the dark theme??

Re: Another Man's Portrait

Peter, no, not overboard at all. I really like that :-) What is your workflow, if you don't mind me asking?
I "fixed" the prob with some multiply layersand masks...

Re: Another Man's Portrait

Now, OB, this face isn't sad or suffering :-)
Looks like you have picked up the highpass/hard light "trick" for the eyes :-)
We lately did have flowers, CATS ! :-), birds etc. so I thought some faces would be nice. Don't have time to take pics lately, not that they would be good, but different :-) Maybe during the vacation I'll have a chance to get some...

Impressionist:
Modified preset Antique Smudge Sepia at 75% layer opacity, duplicated then set the duplicated to SoftLight blending mode.

Thanks Amica, no don't mind you asking, but I don't think you'll like the reply.
I'm a slider mover and button pusher, I just try everything at least once to see what happens.
There was a black layer with a mask to darken the edges, some D&B for the facial lines (used Lucis to emphasize these) a bas-relief layer to bring them out even more and several colour tweaks and levels adjustments.
There was more but..............?

Re: Another Man's Portrait

Wow, you all have done some great work. Thanks for the play, Amica!

Desat, recolorize in sepia tones (HSB adjustment), pushed some pixels with Topaz Simplify, masked back in some of the beard detail. Saved and painted with PST.
