Thank you Danny, for your appreciation. You are right...i could have done it all in photoshp. But i've had psp almost forever, and i'm comfortable with the workings of this software. Photoshp on the other hand is a new acquisition i'm still trying to learn about, and enjoying it too. The built-in filters of photoshp are so much more exciting, however.

Neve--you paint alchemy users are few and far between. I usually use impressionist--it just suits me better, but I do have a collection of brushes for paint alchemy (all the default impressionist brushes). PM me if interested.

inspired by JustChecking's use of color, I thought I'd try out a screenprint effect.

1. channel mixer to decrease image to only yellow and red
2. duped this and did a dark strokes.....brought the fill down to 42% and erased the strokes from all but his hair and suit.
3. duped again and did a threshold until it was just a bit of black outline...brought this down to 22% fill.

Can you tell I'm between projects at work the last few days? LOL

There is only one place for this guy to be

Enjoy

EDIT: Try'd a bit around with my beloved posterize and crosshatch and added the result (made it a bit darker too..)
Take your pick

Re: Creative Portraits: Sharp Dressed Man

Another Simplifier one here, If anyone doesn't know its a free download from Amphisoft.
Added a handmade paper texture with Impressionist, on a separate layer of course.
