Too nice a picture not to have another go at it.

Very true. I'm glad you brought this one back to life!

-------

Plugins I used in this version:
* Akvis Sketch - for edge outlines
* Impressionist - for the hatching effect

See 2nd attachment to get an idea of the contribution of each plugin.

Hi Peter... thanks for your kind words.

Take a look at the image I just uploaded above to get a sense for the role Akvis played in the process. I use Akvis as an alternative to Find Edges or (inverted) Glowing Edges. For this purpose it works very well, but it's a pretty spendy toy.

I'm looking forward to (someday) seeing if a combination of CS3's Surface Blur + Find Edges (or Smart Blur > Edges only) filters yield results of this nature that are better than plain, ol' Find Edges. If not, Akvis is outstanding in this regard.

Impressionst has a lot of possibilities when it comes to sketchy-looking lines.

Re: Creative Portraits: Desiree II

Thanks for the reply Danny, sorry I didn't get back to you earlier. I've been busy smudging and this looked like a good one to try, though I think I have to put more attention into the hair maybe.
