        Re: Pretty young girl

        Greetings Yesterday I stumbled on your site and learned about smudging for the first time. I am totally new to the art world, and I am well aware that I still have a way to go before I even can see what I am looking at I was inspired to try this technique and here is my effort. My husband says it still looks too much like a photo. I had a lot of fun getting it to this point, and need lots more practice to look anything like some of these above! Thanks for all the helpful information, brushes, etc!

        PS i have no idea how to insert the file so i attached it

          Hi Jeree,

          Welcome to "the fun zone"! -- and congrats on your first smudge, which looks a WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN my first shot at the technique. You did fine on the attach. That's preferred method around here.

          re: looks like a photo vs. looks like a painting
          That can definitely be a challenge. Here's something to try...

          Before starting the smudge work, seriously boost non-facial and non-hair colors in the image. "Bright, saturated colors" are not typically present throughout a photo.

          Ditto for detail. Simplify (smooth out) unimportant areas (not completely, but some) prior to smudging. Photos have a lot of precise detail; paintings do not.

          You have a bright future as a digital artist. Good luck on your next creation.

              Here's a version based on the Impressionist plugin's Conte > "Unsmudged Monochrome" variant with stroke color set to image.

                  Looks great, Danny! I am still amazed what the Impressionist can do
