Cropped and straightened image.
Speckled to smooth facial area.
Used Virtual painter for some of the color.
Applied impressionist fine brush hairs for texture.
Used several Nik filters (midnight, sunshine, gold reflector).
Painted in some highlights and shadows.
Several different brushes to create torn effect.
Ran layer styles for border.

I should be working but I love this place to just relax and let my creativity flow without having to worry about cost and value.

1) Luminosity Mask & invert
2) Ctrl+J new layer
3) blended with difference
4) masked and painted in face, parts of hair and hand
5) ran noise reduction filter to smooth
6) painted in original fruit
7) Extensis frame

I got the idea to do this from this marvellous tutorial...

http://www.corel.com/painterix/train...atercolor.html

I did start to write a few things down but I'm afraid I became far too engrossed in trying to figure out so much and try and correct a lot of mistakes.

Certainly I did a sketch on one layer. Did a colour set of the original photo and used those colours to paint with on various layers. It wasn't until the very end that I used a very small amount of Soft Clone to bring back a little detail to her eyes. Didn't use any cloning on the hair - that was very experimental and I wasn't happy with it at all. Anyway...we have to start somewhere. Messed up with the bg too.

A lovely bonnie wee girl and thank you for the photo.

Thanks Danny! I didn't follow the tut to the letter of course but gleaned enough to make a start without the necessity of cloning (except a little for her eyes) from the original photo. I haven't tackled anything like this before and was pleasantly surprised by the result. Doing faces of course I find the most difficult.

Right now I'm concentrating on getting comfortable using tablet and pen, getting to know Painter's brushes and not concerning myself about variants, etc at present. All of that will come in time, it doesn't pay to rush into Painter I believe.

I was Hugely Motivated by Neve.... you have done a fine job.
Visited the site of the watercolor tutorial, huh Neve. Thats fantastic training, but pretty difficult!
So here I cheated a bit!! I used these 3 brushes, in painter 8 - tinting bristle brush, dull grainy chalk, and blender just add water.
In ps7, added frame.

Red face What a beautiful lil girl!

Perfect complexion for this lil girl...

In photoshop i added smart blur then took it to painter, adding it to a watercolour cloner brush.
