Re: Creative Portraits: Girl sitting on Fence

How did I miss this one? Better late than never so I'll give it a go.

First I used the liquify tool to open up her eyes a little more since painterly effects often close them up.

The usual mask out the background and run a radial blur and add texture.

To get the painterly effect, I ran a pretty stong Noise Ninja pass on the "cowgirl" to basically smooth out all the "digital" detail and leave a china doll look to her skintones and features. Then a very minor palette knife. Just a little to change the flatnessl, and further eliminate the "photo" look.
