  • Creative interpretations: Portrait - Bara

    I liked the crop on this shot. Looked like it would be a good one to interpret.

    I ran across an incredible gallery a few days ago.
    http://www.pbase.com/sunartique/sunartiques_digital_art
    It inspired me to try something new. I have a long way to go, but it's going to be fun trying to get there.

    The gist of the process was paste the face as a new layer and set the blending mode to soft light, then added a pattern fill layer over the top.

      Really liked the eyes. So I cloned the hair out of her right eye. Cropped and duped the BG. Ran smart blur, radius 1. Used a hair smudge brush on hair. Ran Brushstrokes - Angled stroke twice, once at (15,5,3) and once at (85,5,3). Used a soften edges smudge brush to work all edges. Added a mask and painted lips and eyes back in. Flattened, added texture, and framed.

        Cheryl:

        VERY inspired. Nicely done. One of the most creative effects I've seen in a while.

        Thx, too, for the pBase link. Sunny does beautiful work.

        I blatently stole your idea about the eyes. An inspiring move on your part. Her eyes really stand out.

        Mine is a mishmash of varous layers, as usual...

        * Photoshop Colored Pencil
        * Impressionist Conte: Unsmudged Monochrome
        * Impressionist Pencil sketch: Detailed Monochrome

          C--great idea opening up her eyes--they do have great impact.

          Danny--great effect! I really like that look.

          I'll never have Sunny's creative vision, but I'm bound and determined to figure out the mechanics of the techniques she used.

            Something Different

            This one is a mix of xero abstractor and buzz and PSP8's Scratchy impasto.

              Good stuff everyone! Cheryl, the petals remind me a bit of the high Victorian collars that women wore back in merry old England.
              I did a levels adjustment then used Amphisoft Simplifier. Then erased back to natural the irises.

              Cheers

                I started with Trimoon's portrait tut (my first time).
                I did not have all the tools in the tut -- so it did not come out good, so I just kept playing with filters till Igot a look I liked.
                One in color the other in BW

                  These colored chalk effect images are great. I love the way everyone is making the most of her eyes.

                    Makes me want to put my Speedo on and jump into those pools of blue!

                      I had to try 1 more composite. This is a mix of the model and the white peacock mini-challenge photo.

                        I thought I'd try one composite. Bara and Hostas blended with a Mike Finn Textures layer applied.

                          Oh no!! Are people running out of steam on Bara? Not this puppy! Instead of an effects approach, I wanted to try a juxtaposition of chaos (a narly tree trunk background) with the serenity of Bara's face. Lightened the eyes a bit while I was at it.

                          Cheers

                              Hi Cheryl

                              Your obviously a Finn junkie like me. If you can find Paint Tools 4, Texture (layer) is part of it. If you have any trouble finding it, let me know and I'll dig deeper.

                              Cheers
