    Creative Portraits: Touching Ground
    by Fizzgiz
    Here is a pic of my son from last Summer. He wasn't very steady on his feet so we only let him play on the grassy area of the yard. Well he just couldn't wait till we let him go near the stone walkway, and this was the first time we let him. I was dissappointed that I didn't get the shot more at his...

    Creative Portraits: A face with character
    by Janet Petty
    This older gentleman kindly gave me permission to use his picture on this forum. I think the face shows a lot of character even though there is considerable glare from his glasses.

    He is a woodworker and makes wonderful wooden spoons and spatulas for Dutch oven cooks. I have a few...

    Enjoy!...

    NOW we're talking! A photo that a woman can enjoy visually while working on Photoshop. Thank you Janet, and thanks to your friend Troy for his generosity.

    P.S., I like your taste in friends!

              Ro/Ra, We HAVE to notice -- it's too well done NOT to notice!

              Neve -- Lovely! You really brought out his eyes!

              Legacy -- Delightful! Soft and yet it retains his character.

                C.J, Ro, Neve, Elle, good job everyone!
                Mine was in painter 8, clone tool, loose brush strokes, then surface texture added.
                Thanks Janet, enjoyed doing this for your good-looking friend!

                    Rather than comment on each picture, I'm just going to say, "I'm glad ya'll like Troy's picture. I'm sure he will be pleased to see the results."

                    Here is mine.

                      One more attempt in ps7 only...
                      Dodge, burn tools for highlights/shadows, more contrast with selective color and level adjs, one more layer of added color, low opac, overlay blend, smudge tool for the painted look, some additional blends (invert, softlight etc)filter-other-custom to bring out texture, also filter-add texture-canvas.

                          I especially liked your Painter interpretation, Judy. You inspire me once again.

                          - - - - - -

                          I used multiple Impressionist-rendered layers (see this thread for brush modification info and general process), then over to Painter for some Blender > Grainy Blender, Artists Oils > Blender Bristle, Artists > Captured Bristle action.

                          Back to Photoshop for sharpening; back to Painter for more blending.

                            I'm posting this wearing a wig and using a higher pitched voice just to meet the criteria for posting (the things we do for arts sake).
                            Hope thats OK
