Creative Portraits: Another Cute Little One

Here's a picture of Alice - my youngest grandaughter, thought you might like to try your hand with this.

Oh, Christine -- she is such a cutie! Hope you get lots of great renditions, although your Painter rendition is a winner by itself!

Mine is a colored sketch effect -- a sketch layer over a find edges-(fade effect) layer over which I run the Graphic Pen (pink/blue from the image), and add color from the original.

Christine, your grandchild is gorgeous!
I made this with some outlining and layermasks using the default paintbrush in ps and also in painter with blender 'just add water', and some brushstrokes with acrylic soft wet brush. Yes, there was one render clouds layer, and added sandstone texture in ps for the final touch.
Hope you like it!

Pretty as a Picture

I truly appreciated the opportunity to try this out in Painter Christine and it was a joy to do in the process.

I cloned using Oils/Smeary Round (hadn't tried this before)
Blenders/a mixture of Grainy Water and Painted Stump
Cloners/Soft Cloner - mainly on mouth, eyes, ears and white blouse.

Finishing touches in PSP8.1

I'm off on holiday next week and will be taking a few photos of another bonnie wee baby girl and very keen to do more just like Alice's portrait.

Detail - Pretty as a Picture

Here's a detail of Alice, if anyone can guide me towards correcting the wrongs, I'd really appreciate it.

P.S. It printed up very well.

Such loveley versions of this - I wouldn't want to have to choose between them.

Neve - if your anything like me when you get near the little ones with your camera you'll be taking more than a few... The biggest problem I have with all 4 of my grandaughters is trying to get them to stay still long enough to take a picture.
