If you didn't know, Phyllis was an active member here until she started her own photo-art forum at Innographx.

Thanks for sharing the links. Phyllis does some wonderful work and has a terrific site.

This is my first try using the following tutorial....the hair was hard to do, it goes so many directions. Had it fake the brushes, as, it's not a PSP tut. Hopefully, I'll get better with practice.

If thats your first try I can only look forward to seeing what you produce when you've practiced a bit more.

Really stunning work.

Something a little weird?

This is done with PSP8 rough leather texture, custom #1 with the effect toned down a lot. Then the eyes are pasted back in and softened a lot.

idyllwilder,

I mostly use Photoshop, but I like BuzzPro for watercolors. The oil emboss is Photo Brush 1.7. Unfortunately, the oil emboss filter is not in the newer versions. For my sketches I use Photoshop.

I hope I have answered all your questions. Fell free to email me if you would like any more information.

Saycheese,
Lynda

tj's try

I get so many great ideas looking and all the great work posted.
My first post to this board.
I wanted to do this all in PSP and the only filter I used was Xero Illustrator.
I like it because it also lightens the image.
Using Dodge, Burn, Smudge and Soften of different layers, different transparency, then combining. I used the Sculpture effect for more dept, adjusted transparency, then back to the Dodge, Burn, Smudge and Soften.
Then copied the layer twice for two different texture, adjusting transparency again.
