I worked with 3 layers..
Top layer: fine oilpainting (50%)
Med layer: diagonal something (don't know the translation) from artistic tab (10%)
Bottom layer: Fresco
After flattening I added a slight texture to it.

Enjoy

this is actually photo manipulation rather than art, but i'm not going to start a whole new thread elsewhere for it... besides, sometimes we can just get too serious, as is depicted in this image

I love your humor, Craig.

I used impasto cloners and brushes in Painter for a loose, thick paint feel.
In PS I played with hue/sat and used the high pass with overlay mode to bring out more of the brush strokes.

Imp, with a few extra features. It's meant to be a colour-saturated oils style..

Well it's one of my settings, but an oldish one, posted here.

I made 3 layers, did 3 vastly different setttings to each, with the most 'destructive' on top (rather than the obvious underpainting sytle). Then set layer transparencies to somewhere arouns 33 - 65%.

So I cheated a little and used ArtRage in ...

...a few places. I know I tout the power of filters, but I had no choice but to do some mouse smudgeing this time.

Thought I do a glamour as well. I can make plastic with the best of them (and no, I did not use NeatImage ). A executed a technique I've used before which requires edge detection then either using Divide (GIMP of course) or Invert Dodge (PS or GIMP). Lots os smudging too by the way. Another technique that I used which I like to share with you is a cool way to extenuate the color saturation. I duplicate and the run a Script-fu called Invert Light and set the layer property to Dodge. I merge down and set to color and adjust opacity to taste. Adds a little makeup (subtle of course) to this beautiful model. Now, you won't see me do a glamour again (only natural cleanup work; my preferred method since I believe natural is beautiful too). Side note: I did leave the moles on her neck since, unless the subject wanted them out, blemishes should be left alone (she obviouse wanted the facial blemishes hidden, but not the neck). Just the philosphy I like following.
