    Creative Portraits: Touching Ground
    by Fizzgiz
    Here is a pic of my son from last Summer. He wasn't very steady on his feet so we only let him play on the grassy area of the yard. Well he just couldn't wait till we let him go near the stone walkway, and this was the first time we let him. I was dissappointed that I didn't get the shot more at his...

    Many of which are without restriction in their usage such as this delightful photo by Damascus aka Jeff Osborn.

    Palms... I especially like this effect. How'd you DO that?
    ASCIIGen again Danny. I used the old version this time (just because I could), but I also have the .NET version (much higher quality interface).

      If one has Windows 2000, does one have to download/install the .NET thing -- whatever it is?

        On the nikoncafe forum there is a post about using the pOpArTISt action (mike finns) but going back in the history to get a certain effect. while looking at this i stumbled on doing this effect
        which is
        run the action
        go to history and select the last one called pop and smudge/smear the hard lines
        open new layer and use the history brush which brings the art layer through
        by doing this on a new layer you can erase any lines that you dont want

        and that is it basically of course you can vary opacity's do other effects etc
        on this one i applied graphic pen (not sure which layer though now ) It is really easy again some photo's work better than others

        Facinating approach. Thanks for the History palette insights. Much appreciated.

          Unfortunately, the new version requires .NET (and I believe .NET 2.0; I have both 1.1 and 2.0 installed; what a heck of alot of download that was).

                Hi all, some nice stuff on here, I thought I'd try another smudge (I do enjoy these old gadgies) this one was the hardest I've done! I think it's because of the glasses and his hat. Anyway here it is........John

                            Glad someone keeps going back in the files and bringing these images back. Some are really worth another shot.

                            So here is my shot.

                                I usually use a combination on most everything I post. This is probably Buzz, Gertrudis, layering, blends, and saturation enhancement. I say probably since I usually just play with the image until I like what I end up with.

                                I also have a sketch PSP script which helps to bring out the lines in a face etc.

                                Don't always write down my steps, but I can seem to get pretty close on this one each time I try. Depends on the original image as you know.
