    by DannyRaphael
    Thought some of you would enjoy working on this one. He kind of reminds me of "me" -- about 35 years ago. (In my dreams, of course. )

    Have fun......

    Creative Portraits: Another Pensive Redhead
    by Peter S
    Used Photoshop's Art History Brush (AHB) for the first time (many thanks Palms for the tips I understand a little better now)

    I think it looks not to bad for a first attempt. You too can try, you dont have to limit yourself to AHB of course. Any style will do.

    Creative Portraits - Sitting Pretty
    by Peter S
    Well Steve I managed to use the title.
    I've had this one for absolutely AGES, and could never get anything I liked out of it.
    I hope this is better than other attempts I've done.

    The first is the original resized for here.

    Full size original version here:-...

    Creative Portraits - Stuck for a title
    by Peter S
    Sorry the original is not brilliant, lots of jpeg stuff. But hey it could be used as a texture????

    A mixture of styles from me so I wouldn't know where to start describing it.

    Have fun. Oh yes Happy New Year too.

    Okay I haven't post one for a long long time.

    I've been experimenting with making my own brushes

    Hey Peter; really like your sketch. I've been in that sketchy mood of late too so did mine in color. Left a crop to keep Danny happy (and just in case the original get's lost over time).

              I had a go with this, but I find that my results are over 100k board limit, and the only way to reduce is to either save as 30% jpg quality (bad picture) or make the image 640 x 480 ish in size = effect not visible too well.

              Will this board ever increase the allowed image size? 250k would be good.

                Could always add an embedded link (like I did) FB. Get a benefit if you donate some money too (200K); think that time's about to come up again for renew for me too.

                        Lyle - I have to say I didn't like the thumbnail but when I viewed the full picture I changed my mind very quickly - like it
                        Palms - as ever what can I say, err rubbish, only joking I like it.
                        Steve I tried to get that effect but my masking for the lips was awful.
                        Amica - that's sharp very nice
                        OB - you certainly brought out the highlights there. (BTW I'm looking for one to call Long and straight watch this space)
                        Fluffbutt - come on post the link.
                        Gilbert - love it but the BG doesn't seem to fit otherwise excellent
                        Alex - again at first I wasn't sure about it, but it gets better after a couple of drinks, sorry views

                        Keep them coming

                          Thank you, Peter. How many drinks you needed for that comment? :-)
                          Joking..the compression did take out a lot of the effect...

                            Sketches, huh?

                            Here's Mine.

                            Started with some color correction and contrasting then Smart Blur (edges) for the basic outlines. Diffuse/Aniso. Set to Color Burn

                            Used the luminosity from the color layer (3 copies merged). Desaturated. Filter/Brush Storkes, Cross Hatch. Under the Color Burn Layer

                            Inverted the luminosity from the color layer. Desaturate. Crosshatch.

                            ABOVE these three layers: A copy of the color layer desaturated and set to Color Dodge.

                              I think I lucked out. Masking a small area like that ain't easy.

                              I did a bit of cleanup with the clone brush in Paint Shop Pro, & that helped.
