        I thought this girl reminded me a lot of Ariel from the Little Mermaid... so I thought I'd see what I could do to make her look that way. I considered adding more elements to make her more mermaidish, but I only had like 30 minutes to work on it and didn't want to get too carried away. The first image is the background change and the second is a more painterly version.

          Tahnks you guys.
          Yes Palms it was the water paper filter on a 50%grey b/ground, overlaid with a slight emboss, then used one of the colour channels as a mask to soften the effect. Glad U liked it.

          I had another go as well!!!!

            Desaturated and painted with a pencil in Painter.

            Back to Photoshop, layer blend mode set to Linear Burn over the original

                I had no idea what I was doing, Craig. I just ran a soft pencil in auto mode in Painter. It was when I brought it back to PS and started playing with blending modes that this effect popped up. I can't put my finger on it, but I kinda liked the effect too.

                  it's almost like seeing it through a gauze curtain or something. very provacative.

                  i had a go also. just some Paint Shop Pro work. no filter forge this time

                        Unfortunately a very good tutorial of this nature is no longer available at Nikoncafe.com.

                        I found this one by googling: photoshop smudge painting video

                        http://video.aol.com/video-detail/id/176729780

                        Pretty basic, but a start in the right direction.

                            Really nice image to play with and some very nice renditions.
                            Mainly used Nik filters.

                                Wow, there are some very creative and beautiful renditions here. As a reward for your creativity here is a little gift. Check out Imagenomic's Portraiture plug-in here: http://www.imagenomic.com/download.aspx
                                for a free trial download. It is a bit pricey but when you see what it can do you may want to take the plunge. IMHO, no semi-serious retoucher should be without it. It is the slickest plug-in I have ever seen. For me it took my work to a whole new level that I never thought possible.
