Creative Portraits: Grandma

Here's a photo by C.Roux of someone's grandma for your artistic interpretation. No amount of glamour would ever replace her grace, elegance, wisdom or chocolate chip cookies.

Grandma has had a makeover - cloned out those glasses, added some highlights to the hair (with the dodge tool), and simply changed the color of her lipstick (blank layer with normal paint mode and low opacity, brush color over lips). Here she is now...such a pretty grandma! And oh yes, a new background color - big difference, what?

Stellar job on the makeover. (#1) Worth every buck she paid for it!

I'd have preferred #2 w/o the texture; the painted version looks quite nice all by itself.

Grandma would be pleased with either. Cookies for you!

Duplicated background twice.

First duplicate xero line art in drawing mode.

Second duplicate xero line art in sketch mode - line thickness 6.
layer mode = multiply, Erased sketch lines over the face.

Followed by Trimoon's water colour effect using a white layer.

Merged layers and texturised.

Christine, I really like that one. I buzzed her, removed some wrinkles, fixed her lipstick, ran xero porcelain, then toned down the pink skin and did a soft focus.

Very nice everyone, diverse and pleasant viewing. I extracted her from the bg first and pasted into a new bg image (which had the edges darkened) image. Smudged her hair and applied a PSP8.01 Artistic Brushstroke on a new layer. Slightly erased certain parts I didn't want. Since I'm about to become a grandma for the 5th time I felt compelled to try this one.

This one was created using two actions (Burled Myrtle (100px) and * Paint-Sketch-07) that accompany Al Ward's Photoshop Productivity Tool Kit book (click here for more info.)

If you're into digital frames and edges, some of the results achieved by actions on this CD are beyond awesome.
