I especially like how the pants came out; like the look of the lighter shades of blue on the darker shades.

Mine: I was in try this, try that mode. Thought all were semi-interesting, so I stacked 'em up side-by-side.

Danny, you've got some interesting effects there. I'm not sure which is my favorite but I think I'm partial to the sepia sketch.

Added random grain to the background and then painted using PaintEngine, applied gradient. Used Impressionist on the dude after simplifying.

Re: Creative Portraits: Dude with an Attitude

mostly I changed the green sleeves - I thought they were distracting. New background is a texture I found at Webtreats run through FF
