    Lots of tweaking colors with photo brushes, like doge and burn etc.

    A very interesting image Ralph. Those photo brushes have some marvelous effects and you have made good use of them. This portrait actually has a very ghostly appearance to it. Love what you have done.

    Interesting Ralph and definitely spooky, but now that Don has mentioned it I do see the mermaid. Nice play with the colours and I like the splashes of red, and the blue face. I use the "add" instead of the dodge, and the multiply blend" instead of the burn now. I used to use those 2 all the time. They are all fantastic brushes. O:) Robyn

    Darn I see her too now, unintended but definitely there. Maybe I should check with Jung on what a mermaid symbolizes ? but most times I don't want to know too much about my work :-|

    Thanks Robyn,
    I used a variety of those brushes, including colorize hard and soft. Overlay and few others. I should have paid more attention. I will certainly try those you suggested.
    Ralph :-!

    Yes I like the colourise ones too Ralph, and use them many times. I never pay attention to what I use and have to work things out afresh with each new drawing. Even if I do look at the summary of brushes I still can't work out what I used for what, because I tried so many out before setting on something. No worries about it all though eh... O:) Robyn

    This is weird so I like it. The colors and light came out right. There are many things hiding in there.

    I see a lizard on his ghostly head, with a foot clutching the forehead.

    Eerie.

    Happy painting,
