    I've wanted time to play with this ever since it was posted. Finally found a few free minutes. Thanks for sharing Photomaster. It is a great photo.

    photomaster, thank you, btw, for posting the image. lovely picture, lovely woman.

    and i also very much like your original rendition. you have a combination there, of sharpness and softness which i find very appealing.

    and, thanks for the link. i tried it out. it seems to only work on photoshop and not psp. it crashed psp when i ran it from there. seems like a good piece of software. simple interface, very intuitive and did a nice job on the image i tried with it.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    oh, now i see what's gotten everyone distracted from the other threads!

    i like that, dee dee. that treatment is quite suggestive of many things.

    Desaturated and painted with a pencil in Painter.

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

    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!!!!
