Creative Portraits: Justin (baby)

I've been looking for a good looking man to put up here. This one is a man now, at 21, but this was 4 months after he was born at 11.5 pounds and no, not a c-section. Best baby of all 21 I've had, and the last baby I didn't adopt-guess why he was the last.

Amy:

They sure change in just a few years, don't they? Here's a sort of sketchy look I'm tinkering with with Impressionist. Thanks for posting a fun pic.

Fluff: If you're monitoring this thread, how are you coming on your pencil sketch method?

Amy--my oldest grew quickly like that too. It didn't feel like he was a baby long enough.

Danny--grayscale sketches are starting to grow on me--you may convert me yet.

Duv--I can see I'm going to have to explore xero--I'm seeing interesting results from it.

This is just several impressionist layers blended together and topped with some sketchy layers at low opacity. One of the things I enjoy about impressionist is that blending different layers together gives an image with more detail than any individual layer. (True of any layers, but the impressionist layers blend nicely ) The particular presets and blends are recorded in the soft water sketch action. http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/photo-art-resources/8328-impressionist-plugin-custom-styles-member-posted.html

CH:

I've been battling with this look for a while and am a long ways from satisfied. I'll know "I'm there" when I see one from you!

Dave:

I've been fiddling with the Pencil Sketch: Detailed Mono style. In essence I've been tweaking/experimenting with these settings: General/Coverage, General/Pressure, Color/Brightness and Contrast, Size/Height and Width.

I'm finding that:
1. When you run the same settings in succession against the same base layer, you get slightly different results each time. This is to be expected because the Placement/Repeatable results setting is off.
2. Blending layers using the Darken blend mode builds up detail.

I'm tying to come up with a set of brushes that vary in detail (by adjusting pressure, stroke density, etc.) and keep more or less the same tone values between them. When I get a few that I think are worthy (and that I can explain), I'll upload them to the .set thread.

Trimoon way...

On one of his cds the tools are brilliant especially the hairbrush.

Be nice if we could upload a bigger file i lose out when i have to resize it again and again.

I did this in photoshop, i hate the tablet and pen, i think what a waste of money i am back to using the mouse.

Did anyone ever attempt the Sargent Brush in painter 8??? Well, i did for the first time on baby Justin's pic and was quite surprised, to say the least! I also used painter's apply surface texture feature on it.

baby justin

Here is a couple of my attempts at baby Justin
1. a pencil and ink action then a vignette

2. a new easy effect i found, a selection made with the texture on the outside not over the picture ( don't know why fancied something different and quite like it )

Still sewing.

Sorry for the huge compression (higher quality version here), but I still am not tired of this preset. For the skin/facial areas, I changed the placement setting to Random, otherwise it's the preset that I shared (gives it that shag look). I used the preset on two layers and selectively erased around the child to blend. Some sharpening and voila.
