You are going to put your site in your signature are you? Or we'll have to pester you for it.

I'm really curious too, I really love the one of the girl with the headband. Very intricate features and light.

Some folks were asking about the blurring technique which I used on the portrait I posted. Here is the description of that very simple technique:

(EDIT: Welllllll...they were really asking about Desp#2/Rog's technique, but Anyways...)

Once I've established all of the major features, exaggerating the lights and darks, I do the following:

1. Select All, Copy + Merge the existing Layers so I have one single Merged Layer.

2. Duplicate this MERGED Layer (Ctrl + J) ~ so now I have 2 MERGED Layers that are the same.

3. GAUSSIAN BLUR the top layer to your heart's content.

4. Add a mask to the top BLURRED Layer (click the mask icon in the Layers palette when you are on the Layer you want to mask) and use the black / white swatches to paint (using the Brush tool) the mask (black takes away the mask, white replaces it).

OR:

ERASE (not using the mask) using the Eraser tool set to a low opacity (25% - 50%) to erase only those areas that I want to be in sharper focus.

5. Copy + MERGE everything, and voila! Instant in~focus / out of focus image!

(I also continue painting after doing this initial blur...trying to have certain key features, like eyes, in focus, while leaving the receding edges of cheeks and neck more blurred).



~Hope this helps.

Thank you, good basic info. You have to do it more, and so does other people.
