    It's always OK to add to an existing thread... no matter how long it's been inactive.

    Glad you added your interpretation to this thread. I esp. like the BG effect. Swampy's method really worked here.

    I'm new to smudge painting as well. It can be hard! I try to paint in the direction of the area. For example, on her cheeks, I did small strokes, but on the dress I did longer strokes in the direction the dress was going, and on her hair, I just "combed" in the direction of the hair growth. Sorry I didn't leave her leg in the painting, but once I got to pulling the dress out, it just didn't look right.

    Don't give up!

    Hi Cindy...

    A belated welcome. Glad you found us. We can always use another member who is accomplished at smudge painting. Your words of advice and encouragement are appreciated.

    I especially like how you did the border area on this one. It really ads to the effect.

    This baby is adorable. I tried several things with the photographs. Including making a brush out of one and stamping the other.
    Welcome to RetouchPRO. You did just fine on your first one.

    For being new to Photoshop, your results are very, very impressive. I especially like the way you did the colors.

    I look forward to seeing more of your creativity in the future.

    Here is my quick take. Combo of back and forth between Photoshop & Painter. Comments Welcome. Beautiful portrait was fun to do! (Just picked a name that seemed to fit the baby)
