    Here I used KPT6 equalizer to sharpen the details, like the eyes and hair (compare with original to see a big difference...with KPT filter you can see individual hairs!) while giving the skin a soft focus look.

    I wouldn't call this "art" though...more like an enhanced portrait.

      Very pretty picture to work with! Wonderful smile and eyes.

      Used Art History Brush with Dry Media Brush 5. Added layer on top of original and added texture brought opacity down.

        What a pretty model to work with..I'm hooked on working on these portraits..

        Phyllis..Very nice filter work..The combination of sparkle and soft skin texture is really appealling..

        Jill..nice texture and frame application..I like it..

        I started with Phyllis's smudge painting technique.. And applied one of Bud's oval frame treatments..Then played with the frame layers to adjust the colors accordingly..

          I used photoshop with a crosshatch filter an gaussian blur. Then added a wooden frame.

            All great contributions, as always!

            Here's a slight variation on my normal method.

              JERRY - I can't bring myself to even START anything with this picture after seeing your version. It's just PERFECT.

                Phyllis - a beautiful pic to begin with - thanks for sharing. I like your 'enhanced' look.
                Jill - good job on the texture and frame.
                Jerry - yes, a tough act to follow on this one....very nice and I like the matte/frame
                Herman and Amanda - nice painterly looks
                Here's my rendition....sepia tone....painted some of the detail/color back in the eyes/lips....blur

                    Jill, Jerry, Amanda, all nice paintings...all different styles, but all lovely.

                    Bill C, I just love the simplicity and softness you achieved! By the way, this pic was from Alex, so he deserves your thanks. Psst...you really have to start reading the blurbs that accompany the mini challenge originals.

                    Ken, the party colors and the twinkle in her eye express the personality she shows even more...very imaginative and effective.

                      Phyllis - I guess I was in too much of a rush to get to the digital darkroom! Thanks for reminding me to get the 'whole story'.
                      Alex - yes, a beautiful girl - a beautiful picture! Thanks for sharing with us!
                      With kind regards,
                      Bill C

                        Well, I am not a he, but a she.
                        My name is Alexandra Macedo.
                        This is a photo I took from my 4 year old cousin.
                        I am not an artist and only am learning photoshop
                        on free time (not much) for a month or two.
                        I am trying to make a nice rendition for this one too, but could not make one I like till now.
                        There is a bigger photo in my gallery.

                        Thanks to everyone for your artistic renditions.

                          Thank you for the image, Alexandra. She is a beautiful girl and you have captured it all!
                          Beautiful work by everone here on this! I sought to emphasize the eyes. If ever a real girl had Renoir eyes, she does! So that's the way I went, with some romantic, soft color; some spray strokes, and a lot of curves detail

                            All of these are so beautiful!

                            Bill C, she looks wrapped in cotton or in fog! She's so pretty and soft.

                            Bill M, I love the textures and muted colors.

                            Amanda, your oil rendition is wonderful.

                            For this one, I played with the dodge/negative layer, only used a soft filter at its highest settings, making a soft colored outline. Merged this layer, made one layer at multiply mode, another at normal mode but low opacity. Then I added a light texture.
