Creative Portraits: Hands Folded

Just an awesome picture by D.Maynard. Wait until you see it up close. It's priceless.

Happy creating.

A really lovely picture.

I couldn't resist trying the high key look on this one.

Nice picture Manjumena, not sure about the white lines/marks sort of makes it look vandalised.

Wonderful picture! Xaran, I really like your high key rendition! Manjumena, very creative watercolor! I also went for a watercolor look:

I was messing with my favorite plugin, Impressionist. I'm not quite there yet on these custom style definitions, but I kinda like the direction.

It's different, anyway.

p.s. If you'd like to try the .set file, send me e-mail via my profile (not PM) and I'll send it to you.

Here's my attempt.

three layers

bg + impressionist with custom setting, like a watercolour pencil + previous layer with PE applied (again, custom setting that makes it look like a watercolour picture that's been soaked with lots of water).

Then opacity changes on the layers, and merged.

Kinda looks "caught in the act".
Cropped and straightened image.
Created background using impressionist and simplifying.
Adjusted color cast.
Nik filters used were midnight for outer border, skylight and gold reflector to enhance skin tones and contrast.
FP lacquer.
embossed bg.
simplified lightly.
Color balance.

Used a pencil sketch layer on the other one. Eliminated background, lots of handwork with watercolor brushes and layers. I am truly happy with these results.
