You are all so very welcome. I'd almost forgotten about this thread. It's good to see it back. I've seen a lot of old threads coming out of retirement. It's fund to look back and see where things and ideas came from. It's sometimes hard for me to comment on everyone's images because it is hard for me to type. I do like everything that I've seen so far and some of the ideas and directionss where this image has gone. Thank you, Danny, and all.
Steve

Hope you like this one too, Steve. Thanks for sharing so much with us.

Painter cloning can turn 'junk' into art. I did the usual fooling around in Elements2 and got a not-very-attractive result. (First image) I used this as a clone source in Painter8 (mostly the WetOils cloner) and got pretty good results. Finished with some touchup back in Elements.

This was supposed to be a high-key greyscale sketch, but I forgot to take out the colour before I ran the action.
Came out as a pleasant surprise.

Re: Creative Portraits: Watercolor Toddler (Trimoon)

Found this little GEm posted way way back in time. Overdue resurrection.

First one with a little help from Lucis.
Second carried on and simplified it.
Same frame for both.

some very nice images everyone. Very cute photo, thanks. Just played in photoshop and then used "just add water" brush in painter.

Re: Creative Portraits: Watercolor Toddler (Trimoon)

Wow Steve; what a precious little one you have there. Hope you don't mind the play. I resized (original photo too small for my taste) and did some Photo Copy (set to Value; GIMP), Grain Extract Overlay (this step gives it a soft focus feel), Retinex followed by edge detect and then Retinex again. The resulting layer set to Value (gives the dark outlines and gives the rendering a more watercolor look). Then blended in some vector simplication (yes I like cheating). Some selective smudging and voila. Here's the high quality version.
