Combined smudging with brush dynamics.
It's fun and gives a nice result (like a well-behaved art-history brush)

Well not a watercolour.
Denoised quite heavily, a slight colour shift with H&S simplifier from Amphisoft, smart blur and then diffuse filter to soften the edges.

Re: Creative Portraits: Kids, Brother and Sister

I got WILD!

I took a dupe layer into liquify filter and smudged there. Added cut out and dry brush filters and a little film grain and jiggle. Set to luminosity blend mode over the original. It kinda grew on me as I worked on it and it is way out of my normal "style". My aplogies to Mom and Dad! LOL

Re: Creative Portraits: Kids, Brother and Sister

Though I have CS2 and used Swampy's line-art technique in it, I decided it was time to translate the effect in GIMP. I pretty much used the exact steps, but instead of minimum, I used Dilate (a GIMP filter). Comes pretty close to mimicking the effect (but no slider, so not at much control). Also did some other things for the watercolor result.

I'm in the process of evaluating a just-released plugin called SKETCH MASTER from Redfield Plugins (www.RedfieldPlugins.com). Two of the layers in this one were rendered using it. I also used Virtual Painter Oil Painting and Photoshop's Crosshatch on this one.

At this point my opinion is this plugin definitely belongs in my arsenal of tools. It has options and controls that allow it to render sketch effects unlike any I've seen in any other plugin. It generates visually identifiable output much like Buzz or Virtual Painter do, but with very unique.

I'm going to hold off on the details for the time being. When I post the review, I'll include some discoveries, pointers and suggestions.

Check Akvis Sketch before deciding. I am very impressed with it.

Thanks Swampy; just wish I had slider control like Minimum has in PS. I still try to use both CS2 and GIMP (master of none of course; lol).
