          Steve I like the cropped one the best.
          Palms I do believe you made her angry. (I like it though)

              wow. you guys are good.

              that's one of your best, peter.

              steve, love the 2nd one. very painted.

              palms, you got mood, girl

              pavel, also painted nicely.

              i went completely south. this one took a long time to find something that spoke to me more than just the gorgeous girl, which, you would think is enough, perhaps. but i wanted something else and couldnt find it... for a while. then it sort of came out of the dark and that's exactly what i ended up doing... something out of the dark.

                Thank you Peter and Craig,
                Craig i see the moodiness is catching although yours is a mystical/astrological type mood and i think it is great

                  Yeah I think I like the second one better too.

                    Awesome interpretations, gents. Gorgeous gal. She exudes attitude. I went with a sketchy/etchy rendition -- with attitude.

                      Lonk you made her look like Rita Hayworth, Oh dear showing my age again.

                        I'll have to take your word for that, Peter. I kept thinking Brooke Shields as I was doing it.

                            In keeping with the moody feel, here is mine.

                            Janet

                            And looking at it after it is posted, I can see that the compression took a lot out of the detail. No those are not splotches. They are cracks and readily evident on the full res version. Go figure.

                            edit: Even after adding the closeup, it still lacks the original. At least one can see I tried.

                              thanks, palms, peter that was an exercise that just kept going and going until i hit on that dark bit. i was about 15 layers in before it showed up and it took almost another 15 to refine it. but i like it too and may do more along those lines.

                              yup, i can see rita hayworth and brooke shields there. and i like that old style portrait look. nicely done, lonk.

                              janet, the lament of RP'ers, 'only 100k'. *sigh*. you could post it in the gallery and get 200k. or maybe post it on image shack or one of those. i'd love to see the full sized version.
