3. Duplcate the Crystalized layer.
4. Apply Unsharp Mask, about 200, 3, 0
5. Apply Blur > Smart Blur, 9, 20, Low, Edge Only
6. Change blend mode on the Smart Blur layer from Normal to Color Burn
7. Add a new layer to the top of the layer stack
8. With a small hard edged brush, paint black over errant lines
9. Top with a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer and set Saturation to +100

Note: This technique will NOT work on all images! Some may argue (and rightly so) it didn't work on this one!

Keep having fun!

Danny... Looks like stained glass jigsaw puzzle. I'd hate to have to put that one together

Portraiture

Lots of stuff. All filters applied to selective layers and opacities with erasure (reverse painting) techniques. Used Flaming Pear's Pixel Trash, DCSpecial's 1969 filter (a got to have filter for saturation/color adjustments to simulate painting colors and lighting), Impressionist (mainly for the hair area), GIMPressionist furry (for the overall brushing texture) and, of course, GIMP's Bumpmap filter.

very nice, lkroll

i had to have a go at this one too. it started out with, of all things, warp mesh. i raised her eyebrow a bit and gave her a hint of a smile. from there, all hell broke loose used several impressionist presets, lots of blend modes, some blank raster layers with airbrush dabs of this and that and some smudge painting with a smudge brush. there's also a couple of adjustment layers in there; a contrast/lighten and a color balance one and maybe even another contrast/lighten. there were many layers, some of which got turned on and off at different points to find/create an effect. if i had to post the exact workflow it would take up way too much space.

craig

edit: thought i'd touch this one up a bit more. so, i've added a second version.

I will be doing some traveling, but, for...

...the most part, I will be in the home area. I really like the artistic retouch technique the best; I'm very happy that I have this oportunity to have some fun and share with you all. Thanks for the comment Palms.

Glad you liked it too Craig; is that a little smirk that you added to her? (en lieu of a smirk smiley since I do not see one; LOL).

lkroll,

well, i was trying to get a bit of a smile out of her, but i can see how it could be a smirk also. a shame; people look so much better with smiles.
