Re: Creative Interpretations: Desiree II

Wonderful portrait!

I took the original into Illustrator for a live tracing. Did one live trace as a grayscale and another in color.

Brought both into Photoshop and set the grayscale to SoftLight above the color version at about 80% opacity. Used the color version as a history state to paint color back with a soft spattery brush. White layer below the history layer.

Tweaked the grayscale layer with a little dodge and burn.

Very nicely done, Peter. I've tried this on other pictures but didn't like the result. Could you please tell me how you achieved this look.

Lovely young lady! Hope I did her justice. This is a smudge type painting but left a little soft. Changed a little background and lit it a little.
