Watercolor or Oil?

So here's my attempt at a watercolor. I think it looks more like an oil?

Definitely more oil-like IMO, and quite a nice interpretation, too.

Well done.

Soft brush oil.

Too many steps to remember (Impressionist and other filters with some mouse smudges). GIMP bumpmap at the end.

Here's my go. Used Painter for an oil clone with camel brushes. Added French paper texture. Then pulled into PHotoshop, smudged some and saturated eyes and mouth some for a smoky, sexy look.
Wonderful mixed interpretations so far. I have learn't from all of them.

Duo tone

Had another go at this in duo-tone with Impressionist charcoal filter and Photoshop diffuse filter. Then Nik sunlight filter.

Sort of a soft focus thing with an experiment with the texture

Re: Creative Portraits: Niki

this was done with a modification of 'Impressionist Paint', a Filter Forge filter by CF&M.
