Amy,
My apologies, it was you who started the thread. I assumed (by default) that it was Danny.

Alex... I vote for your first picture.

Just found this thread with such an interesting face. I did an ink sketch in Painter.

Ah!...a lady from out of the past, (threads that is).

OK, here's another try, done with a lot of just playing around to see what came up.

I haven't posted in awhile. Here's my attempt at a pastel looking print. Hope everyone enjoys it! Let me know what you think! I loved painting it.

That is very good bbuttry and so is your stunning web site , makes me timid to post my image. I used about three photoshop filters before adding Impressionist Watercolor Damp Translucent.

Agreed... very impressive work, Brad. The background work is especially impressive. Don't be a stranger here.

re: makes me timid to post my image.
Wait... give yourself some credit. I greatly admire people like you who jump right in. Most people who surf this forom "only look." There's definitely nothing wrong with having less experience than someone as accomplished as Brad.

If you like his style (and I do), Google "smudge painting" to get ideas on a method that will get you going in that direction.

re: I used about three photoshop filters before adding Impressionist Watercolor Damp Translucent
The fact you're using / combining multiple effects is a sign you're growing. Don't stop doing that!

=================

On mine I used layers rendered by:
* AKVIS Sketch for edges
* Impressionist Conte > Faithful - to mess with the colors
* Jeremy's Mish-mash brush in Painter

Re: Creative Portraits: Woman with a Hat

very nice Brad nice site as well hope you do stay around so we may learn something from you .
Jim Jam agree with Danny holeheartedly the best way to learn is read and join in, that way you get inspiration and inspire others, Although you can search "smudge painting" here there are a few threads on it with links.
