Very nice interpretation, Tony.

By impressionist you mean the Impressionist plugin, it would be great if you would add your custom style definitions to THIS THREAD.

In any event, it's always a pleasure to see your work.

Danny, you wrote: Amy:

Meant to ask... Do you have the PM ArtGalery standalone program or the plugin? I thought the results of your slicing and dicing on this one was outstanding. I really like this effect.

ANS: I have both There are more filters in the stand alone one. But not worth the extra $$ if you already have the plugins.

The two things that really struck me about this image is the hand and the eyes. I decided to accentuate the hand (larger almost masculine) and her left eye. Puckered the lips. Channel Mixer Adjustment Layer. Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer. PS Angled Strokes, Direction Balance 81/Stroke 8/ Sharpness 5
Thomas Newman: Palladium
Cropped and stroked.

Cheers
Dave

Well done.

Really nice Rendition Joy! As Danny has alluded to, we here to learn techniques. Do you remember your steps to achieve this effect?

Cheers
Dave

Hi Duv, thank you.

I honestly doubt that I could tell you if, my life depended on it. You would not believe how many steps and 'undos' (mostly Undos) this one had. I started out to do a sketch and it wasn't going very well, so, I started playing. I doubt that I could repeat it, myself.

I'm sorry, I promise, I will do better with keeping notes, next time.

Thanks Danny

I followed 2 grate tutorials by Phyllis Stewart at innographx.com
http://www.innographx.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=274
and then followed
http://www.innographx.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=18
with the coloured pencil layer, when you smudge it gives the hair effect
finaly created a white top layer>masked>brushed away from 20%.40% and 80%

hope this will help and sorry if there is any grammer or spelling mIsTaKeS!
