avogadro:

The application of Graphic Pen to multiple layers, each time in a different direction, then combining the best of each layer is a great way to vary stroke direction. Combining Colored Pencil in the mix is very unique, too.

Hope to see more of your inventive recipes in the near future.

Well done and welcome aboard.

I like how the mother turned out in this one. But, the daughter ended up looking a little bit creepy with the black, dead looking eyes. My apologies to her.

I used Paint Engine's filters to finish off after separating the mother/child from the distracting background and substituting another I created.

Mitch -- I really like your sketch technique a lot!
The canvas looks fine when expanded to full view, but it does look blotchy if we just click on the thumbnail.

You can try to bring back some of the original look of her eyes with a layer mask -- her squint into the light hides most of her eye, and that does make it harder to avoid the overly dark look. I like the look of the mother also!

Thank you very much, Gold coin, for your comment.
This was cloned in Painter 8 using a soft blender brush and soft watercolor brush, all different opacities and sizes. (I modified the brushes). The image was first desaturated and adjustments applied in ps7.

Thanks for the tip CJ. I hadn't thought of tampering with it after the fact. Will keep that in mind for the future.

I used Painter oil cloners and PS to give a light painted effect.
