    I've got to catch a plane soon, so no time to detail the "how to," but I can tell you this is a combination of Dry Brush and Microsoft Impressionist effects.

    Speaking of which I still have two legit copies of MSFT Impressionist for sale for anyone interested. Contact me by PM (click link under my name at top of post).

    Gotta run.

      Here is a version done in PSP8. One step photo fix, edge preserving smooth, brushstrokes, and a texture.

        Here's mine.

        What a beautiful girl.


        I brightened the eye color, duplicating the layers twice in screen mode, and masking everything but the eyes. Next, I duplicated the layer and ran Amphisoft's sorting-shaman in Min-I-Max mode to get the squares. I then masked the eyes, nose, and mouth to restore the details.

          Nice responsive picture.

          Here's what I did.

          1. Simplify with my India Ink method

          2. General color boost using Saturation. Targeted color shifts using Levels, Color Mechanic, and Nik Green Contrast Filter with layer mask.

          3. Smudge and clone.

          4. A little bit of brushing in Painter.

                Just a basic technique I've run across and that seems to really work well with portraits of this type.

                Some Smart Blur, Smudge, a bit of USM (Unsharp Mask), touch-ups here and there and then added a small amount of texture. The second is the same without the texture, not sure which I like better.

                Great portrait to work with.

                  Very good, Jeffrey. It has a nice natural media feel, while still retaining the details of her face.

                          Here's my try using Elements 2 w/ HPT...

                          1. Cropped & replace background with one I made up
                          2. Spatter, SmartBlur, Palette Knife
                          3. Copy above: Fresco, linear burn, 20% opacity. Mask to hide a few spots that got too dark.
                          4. Merge visble, Crosshatch (very light settings) then...
                          Selecting only the backgroud: Add Noise, Color Pencil, Paint Daubs, & darken w/ Curves
                          5. New layer, clone lips (mostly just the upper lip) from original. Normal mode, 56% opacity.
                          6. Added texture with an overlay map.

                          jaykita, I really like the loose brush stroke effect in yours. How did you do this?

                            Hello, and thank you.
                            I used a combination of pshop7 and impressionist plugin filters.
                            For the strong black lines, i used the blur-smart blur - find edges, invert filter. Multiply blend. Also the green backgr was with the help of a fill layer and layer mask.
                            The brush strokes were done with an impressionist filter style which has been modified by me. Very much like a water-pencil effect.
                            If anyone's interested, i could post it.
