    by DannyRaphael
    Thought some of you would enjoy working on this one. He kind of reminds me of "me" -- about 35 years ago. (In my dreams, of course. )

    Have fun......

    Creative Portraits: Another Pensive Redhead
    by Peter S
    Used Photoshop's Art History Brush (AHB) for the first time (many thanks Palms for the tips I understand a little better now)

    I think it looks not to bad for a first attempt. You too can try, you dont have to limit yourself to AHB of course. Any style will do.

    Sorry the original is not brilliant, lots of jpeg stuff. But hey it could be used as a texture????

    A mixture of styles from me so I wouldn't know where to start describing it.

    Have fun. Oh yes Happy New Year too.

    Fine Art with grain.

    Tried to hide the pixelization with grain; did some cloning too. Had to reduce the size to fit the spec here.

                          Here's mine: salt and pepper filter, Buzz, VP, and playing around with saturation and smoothing and adding back some colors.

                              Thank you ydelle!

                              To begin you will need to have two free plug-ins #1 optic Verve Labs Virtual
                              Photographer and #2 Impressionist.

                              You will need also two custom styles plug-ins installed into Impressionist the
                              first is on page 1 post #4 djrOil24 and the other on page 2 post #17 kentc found in this thread
                              http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/pho...er-posted.html .


                              Open your image and duplicate it twice,on the first dupe open the plug-in filter Impressionist >style #kentc:cezanne use Background Image and no other changes and apply keeping normal blend mode at 100% opacity.

                              On the 2nd dupe layer ,the top layer, reduce opacity to 36% with Overlay blend mode. Merge the duplicate layers then erase the eyes,mouth,ears and the tip of the nose with whatever opacity you want, I used 56% in my original post.
                              Merge all layers and you should have the same as the first image posted here.

                              Duplicate this layer and apply Virtual Photographer filter under the B/W effects copper to the top layer ( click off the Effect window in VP ) @100% opacity Darken blend mode then merge these two layers to get effect of image two, apply the same Virtual Photographer filter to this in normal blend mode @100% opacity then duplicate. On the top layer of this set you will apply Impressionist filter style #djrOil24 Background Image no other adjustments, apply and erase eyes etc. then adjust opacity to your liking in normal blend mode ( I used 48% ).

                              And the last step is optional, you can add a pattern layer above this such as Artist Surfaces > Course Weave @60% scale, Soft Light blend mode @34% opacity. Your result should look like the third image here. If I did this right.
