  • Creative Portraits: Green Dress

    Here's another pic I liked. I did try playing with it earlier today using Danny's smudge technique, but really screwed it up so I'll try again in the morning. Enjoy!

    Nice image. I used impressionist > oil smudged.

      Arghhh!

      OK, something tells me I'm making this way harder than I have to.
      First I lightened it then did a 30% (max) edge smoothing.

      got rid of whatever it is she's holding in her left hand which forced me to get rid of the hand altogether - maybe a mistake since I never could get the sleeve right after that.
      Touched up her bracelet & right eyebrow (which had mysteriously disappeared) in Painter IX
      sharpened

      adjusted color, hue, saturation

      applied a custom brush
      smoothed some rough edges around her head wrap (that gave me fits)

        Tried a little painter...

        I used a smeary camel brush, then used PSCS for USM, Saturation, and added some yellow in Color balance.

          Nice image great results so far. Yes Neasa that's pretty much it with smudging different brushes and opacities give different results and there seems to be a couple of different ways to finish i have posted two one with just usm and the other with usm and ansiotropic ( causes a bit of a problem where there is hair i find)
          Alcar love your impressionism and 12fretter your background is great ( dont worry so is the potrait)

              Have never used the history art brush before now, never knew what it did.

                  Since I used the art history brush I have been reading up on it. Oops looks like you are meant to use a white layer at reduced opacity for painting, this little bunny used a gaussian blurred layer.

                    Started out by applying Levels (to open up the shadows) and cropping the image.

                    Applied a couple custom Impressionist presets and sharpened a little -- then opened in Painter for some Blender > Grainy Blender strokes.

                    To add a little more depth, I tried out plugin 'Boss Emboss' from www.FlamingPear.com (30-day free trial). It has a LOT more options/flexibility than Emboss filters that come with Elements, Photoshop, PSP, etc.

                    Added a bit of a canvas look with Alien Skin Spat > Resurface and added a colored frame.

                      had a go with my sharpness routine and some variances.

                          I'm in the process of evaluating Art Master Pro from Fo2pix (www.Fo2pix.com).

                          This interpretation was rendered by the "Sensible Pencil" Art Wizard. The first image is how it came out of AMP.

                          The second was fine tuned in Photoshop (Levels, Brightness/Contrast and painting over a few areas to tone down or remove the AMP effect) and the texture was applied.

                            One more. Such a nice image to work with. Black layer with reveal all mask.

                              Lovely image to work with! Several Impressionist settings, a touch of Virtual Painter, and a little texture.

                              Haven't had much time to play lately, but this one was too nice to pass up.
