Re: Bearded gent

Thank you for the comments Craig
That texture is a combo of Craquelure, Grain, canvas, and fake_skin with a bit of Redfield++ Bas relief thrown in with black removed and some extreme curves adjustments upon a few 50% gray softlight layers with different blend modes and opacity lowered..
(In other words, I just threw a lot of stuff at it till something stuck! then blended it to the picture)
