Well I have moved on from my lady. I liked the smudge effect so much I thought I should practice useing it. It is going to take a while to get the hang of it.

I am not unhappy with my castle but I hope to be able to do something with more detail one day. Practice, practice, practice...

Thank you Overkill

Oh but I have worked on her some more Topezia. Faces are new to me. I feel like I have learned a lot working on this. She is a creation of my imagination but believe me she looks better in my head. Even so I am not unhappy with her. Maybe I will try some eyelashes or nostrals next. I used the soften portrait effect. One of my favorite BoltBait effects. At least I think it was BoltBait made it. Then I lowered the opacity changed the mode to additive and put her over a black layer.

Hmm .. what about face 'definition' like wrinkles and such; referring to Ash's smudging work with the 'Silver Surfer'. Although I wish he would post tips of his 'leet' smudging since I'm dieing to do something similar. Nonetheless, the lady is improving, just keep trying, I'm sure you'll eventually get the desired look. Good luck!

I should've posted in here ages ago.. :oops:

Well, i'll comment now.

Your gallery is amazing, you've done amazing, creative and colourful pieces which always look good. This woman WIP is brilliant! Great attention to detail, but i think the hair needs a bit more texturing. However, i just love the work done on the eyelashes! Keep up the great work! :D

Merry Christmas

Thanks for the tip LFC4EVER. I didn't realize da had tutorials as I have not spent much time there but I will look around. I winged it with the hair. I have so had it with this girl. I leave her here for now. I flattened her forehead some, removed some hair and tried to add some texture, made her nose a little bigger, added some more highlighting and gave her red lips. In my file she is now called 'Red Lips'.

While making my latest image these were saved along the way. Jumble is a plugin that Curtis made that I love.

He said,"I can't see this plugin getting used a lot but I thought it was a cool idea, again, it was just something

I wanted to do to get more familiar with Visual Studio and the plugin template". I for one use it and I'm glad he made it.

I wanted to share how I sometimes work building on a simple image while trying to put them all together to come up with

what I would call a very busy but I hope pleasing end result.

And this is my end result:

It is chaotic and ordered at the same time. Much how I feel my life has been of late.

I was wondering if I work in an odd way while doing abstracts or if others work in a similar way? I never have just one file open. For this I had

three files open all with multiple layers, saving imiges I like and importing them into another open file along the way until I get where I am going

which is not alway something I know when I start doing an abstract. Very unlike how I work when I am doing a realistic image.

Now that's lovely as usual and it has a depth too, like a soft fog all over it.

I am curious about your method, it is surely better to have more files opened cause one single file with lots of layers usually slow the program down, but don't you get confused?

And after you've picked up all the images you like and reimport them in the new file you proceed with the color blending or else?

Thanks,

Ciao

Thanks topezia. There was a time when I would get confused but not so much anymore.

Also I have been know to exceed pdn's cache memory but it taught me to remember the

first rule of the computer when working on anything that you don't want to lose.

Save early and often

Back in the day I worked on Lotus 1 2 3 a lot and [ /file save ] was my friend.

That must have been one of the first big programs. You could work for hours on Lotus 1 2 3

and if you closed before you saved you lost everything. I love it when that little screen

pops up and ask me if I want to save.

no Janettsue you are not alone in this manner of working I've often as many as 4 or 5 files going. both abstract and realistic images.

very nice compilation you have here. puts me in mind of those wonderful scrapbook papers. the expensive ones!

Thanks starryeyed I have been a quilter for many years. I have spent decades putting colors and shapes together. My husband says the computer is saveing him a small fortune in fabric.

oma thank you, would you believe I draw with lasso select. I find it a faster way to go. look forward to seeing your rose.

You can see how lasso select would work well on something like this:

Helen the truth is I don't like her at all. I think she is scary. She needs a lot of work but thank you for being kind.

This is a manipulation of some pictures I took a few weeks ago.

I think I like the Windmill best.

Janette Sue love that windmill.

I like your little story book girl as well, maybe its the eyes that are throwing you off on that one. can't quite put my finger on why I think its the eyes, but they seem to drill right thru you. Do you know what I mean? very intense , wise beyond her years, I guess would be the correct term. sort of out of sync with the naive personally of the little girl?

that's just a thought, not even sure that's exactly it.

anyways just wanted you to know its always a great pleasure to visit your gallery.

ciao
