Creative Portraits: Kids, Charlie

Her friends call her "Charlie," but her real name is "Charlene." She's a great kid.

Make her mom want to buy your interpretation.

sweet charlie!

One background copy layer of the image and one layer of the text.
Drag the backgr copy layer over the text layer in the layers palette. Select background layer. Hold Ctrl and click G. Just like magic your photo is now inside the text.

I tried to come up with something a mother - or a grandmother - would want. I created a new background by choosing two colors from the original, ran render clouds on a new layer, and then ran several Impressionist settings. I painted Charlie back in on another new layer, using various art history and history brushes, then added texture.

Mom and grandma would be pleased. Nicely done.

Very photogenic child. Nice interpretations by all.

I didn't want to loose any of the childs attributes by getting too painterly (personal thought).
Decided to change the head angle.
Created additional skin and bathing suit.
Got rid of the yellow ribbon.
Knocked out the image.
Created the bg with FP hue & cry, then ran impressionist.
Hue and sat adjustment on bg to compliment subject.
Nik filters used; skylight, pastel and contrast
Lightened face, softened some areas (keeping some freckles of course)
AS simplified subject only.
Xero clairity.
Color correction

Ditto on the request to reveal on the Impressionist styles. This is very cool.
