        Re: Creative Portraits: Red Headed Beauty

        I have lurked here for a long time, coming back to Photoshop and portraiture after an absence too. I need to get rid of the notice telling me I have never posted, so I resurrected this thread and had a go at a smudge.

        I go at this a bit differently from what I can understand from other posts. I capture the entire image as a pattern, then use the pattern tool to bring in the image a bit at a time, smudging as I go. This allows me to reuse the pattern tool to rework an area as needed. I tend to go from a big sloppy smudge to bringing in the details only where I need them. This method also keeps me focused, whereas if I work on an entirely visibile image I tend to jump around trying one area and then another.

        Here is my result. Comments welcome.

          Hi and welcome Barb that is a interesting and different approach, with a good outcome

          i tend to do my "AHB" blind (meaning i dont look at the photo i cover it with a solid colour and see what appears )

            Decided to have another go at this one as I need the practice on hair.

              hi Barb:

              Glad you gave into the "nag" message. This is indeed a fine effort. Appreciate the detail on your unique approach, too.

              Look forward to seeing more of your creations in the future.

              BTW: looks like you did fine on the attachment.

                Thanks for the kind comments. Palms, I work on a nearly blank canvas, I have a top layer of the photo so transparent I can just barely see it, just for placement, and I turn it off when the image has progressed to the point where I no longer need it.

                  Sorry; couldn't help myself. I will now reveal a secret that I kept from you. Ever since I first discovered (a few years ago) Jigsaw Image Mosaics (these guys were inspired by Arcimboldo's work by the way), I've been obsessed with mimicking Guiseppe Arcimboldo's look. Now that I finally found a way, I can't seem to stop doing these. Please, again, I ask for forgiveness.

                      Of course you are forgiven Lyle ( not that you have anything to be forgiven for )

                        TeeHee ... I couldn't resist. Somehow the curtain reminded me of a shower curtain so "psycho" naturally came to mind.

                            Barb T., I have no idea how to use a pattern tool but i like what you did. Especially the hair. I can totally relate to the need to focus on smaller areas.
