Re: Creative Portraits: The Fisherman

I thought this could look good as a simple honest b\w photo.
channel mixer
curves
photofilter with curves
used lens blur around his face to simulate small depth of field.
added noise.

Thanks Swampy. Iused liquid ink brushes of velocity sketcher for smoother details, sparse camel for more textured areas, and sparse camel resist to break thru to the white areas underneath. I like the ability of the liquid ink variety to look 3D - if you double click on the layer name and then increase the amount the look of depth is enhanced. Its easy to overdo, however.

I usually use many different brushes from different groups, I'm not sure I can remember everything.
Quick clone, revealed everything using soft cloner.
bristle brush cloner
coarse oily blender for hair and bg
round blender brush for face, neck and clothes
used a differnet brush for the beard, probably grainy blender
inspired by John's work tried a sargent brush, looked awful, made two files (one before sargent brush, second after), exported to Photoshop, merged layers with layer mask, added texture
