Impressionist Oil

And the help of Paint Engine, PS's Chrome, and GIMP's bumpmapping as well as Xero's Supersmooth filters, to name a few (yes, I have some trade secrets; I forgot all the filters I used. ). Many mouse smudgers later, below's the result. If you like, you can click here for a higher quality version.

What a lovely image. Hard NOT to paint it, it just paints itself. After adjusting a tad in Photoshop, used Painter 9. Background and hair is Artist's Pastel, skin is Soft Charcoal, sweater is Cap. Bristle. Edited out the lower right stuff in Painter (painted it out).

Lovely kid...

Simplified
Painted some detail back in
Impressionist something-or-other
Pattern stamped some undesirable Impressionist artifacts out
Impressionist again using a slight variation of a preset I'd conjured up earlier today trying to achieve a sort of, well, Impressionist look. Faded that back a little.
