    Maybe it's grapejuice?

    Nice picture nonetheless. Photo by Greg.

    A little PopArt

    Some "Replace Color" and a little smudging away of some lines.

        Ran Amphisoft Simplifier followed by Flaming Pear Mr Contrast. Added a small amount of Xero Moodlight. Played with the settings in Xero Illustrator then ran a 50% blur on the skin.

          Great variety in the submissions so far.

          Kiska--I love what gothic glow did to her eyes.

          I went all over the place with this one. On the first image, I started with buzz followed by lucis art. Duped this layer and ran VP air brush followed by xero's porcelain. Reduce the opacity to 65% and blended in luminosity mode. Merged the layers together. Ran impressionist followed by paint engine on the result. Faded paint engine to 65 soft light and blend mode of soft light. I know I went back to lucis after that, but ran out of room on my scrap of paper where I was taking notes and can't read my handwriting. I finished by masking her eyes back in.

          On the second I was playing with composites again. I put a street scene on her dress and the golden gate bridge in her glass. Merged together and played around with VP Oil and Lucis art. Then topped with some pattern fill layers in soft light to add texture.

            The gothic glow didn't do the eyes. Went back in and painted a pale blue on whites, color mode I think. For the iris I used her skin tone from 'glow' copy before I did the sepia to original, then went in and painted eyes. Does that make sense???

              Yes--it makes sense. The eyes are even better now I know how much work it took to make them.

                You're very kind. I especially like your composite version. Are those plug-ins you're using or what? kiska

                  This page has links to the (free) xero filters, (free) fantastic machine's paint engine, and flaming pears website (some free, some not)http://punkinstuff.tripod.com/

                  lucis can be found here http://www.lucisart.com/

                  virtual painter is here http://www.vpainter.com/default.asp

                  buzz is here http://www.skydancers.com/_fo2pix/fo2pix.html

                  Talk to Danny about impressionist.

                  A lot of the effect in the composite pic comes from putting different pattern fill layers in either soft light or overlay blending mode at reduce opacity (65%) over the top of the image.

                      I agree, Cheryl. Definitely some nice interpretations so far.

                      - - - - - -

                      kiska: The Impressionist plugin is part of a program called Image Composer that was distributed with Microsoft Front Page 98, which is no longer being sold commercially. If you're an eBay shopper, FP98 comes up for auction pretty often.

                      If you're not into eBay and you're interested in acquiring this plugin, contact me through e-mail or private mail (click my name above the post).

                      - - - - - -

                      I was trying for a sketchy look that didn't look too much like anything I've seen before.

                      Speaking of Impressionist, I used the varients Pencil Sketch: Detailed Monochrome and Conte: Smudged Monochrome, plus Virtual Painter Collage (only the black strokes), Find Edges, Smart Blur/Normal + Smart Blur Edges Only and the usual layer masks and blend modes to select areas of each effect to include in the final result.

                      If anyone wants to see all the gory details (there are many), send me e-mail. I never know if anybody really finds the blow-by-blow descriptions I do occasionally useful and I'm too tired right now to describe a 17 layer stack.

                      - - - - - -

                      Keep having fun. Glad to such a variety of interpretations.

                          This photo gives a whole new meaning to sipping wine. A nice picture to try some different techniques.

                          Did a levels adjustment.
                          Eliminated noise in order to apply an even texture.
                          Not sure, but I think I applied ink outlines to the BG. Darkened with Nik midnight.
                          Used india ink for the texture and painted a light emboss to certain areas.
                          Added some form where needed on her dress.
                          Applied a lens flare to wine glass.
                          Added a highlight to her lips.
                          Applied lacquer to portions of her face and dress.
                          Made a color adjustment.

                            I did two versions. The first is xero lineart on sketch with lines all the way up, merged with a buzzed copy of original.

                            Second is Fauvist from the new VP

                              Quick and dirty - Adjusted threshold, cut out image and started playing around. Simple!
