Hi!

Used this part of the tutorial to makes this: [link]

Hope you like!

By the way, you wouldn't happen to know any tools I could download for GIMP that would be the equivalent of the patch tool and the liquify tool in photoshop? It's the only reason I didn't manip our noses.

Great work here in presenting this. I've been procrastinating on making a tutorial of my style forever. This is pretty close to how I start things. I'm glad to see that what I showed you has worked for you. I particularly like the way

Lately I've been including eyebrows, or at least some indication of the their 'former' presence, as I find that eyebrows are one of those distinct human features you want to keep to some extent as they help convey a certain character and emotion in the face as a whole. I just realized that it's not a bad idea to take a look at whole Whoopi Goldberg pulls off eyebrowlessness. :)

Keep up the excellent work.

I appreciate your giving me credit on this.

:giggle: yeah, whoopi can do it.why cant some kitties? I like the eyebrows in as of late..

thanks for all your help, you deserved credit! If it wasnt for you , id have no idea how to do this! :hug:

I use Photoshop Elements, so I don't have the patch tool. Does the clone tool work just as well?
Reply
:iconshakealicious:
shakealicious Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2007
hmm, yes.. I think the clone tool would work just fine.well for the smaller bits like blemishes or something.. but for an entire eyebrow..you might have some patterning caused by the clone tool.. you might wanna select a smooth section of forehead, hit ctrl-j which makes your selection in a new layer, them move it over the eyebrow, merge down then clone the lil edges..

Very Detailed, I like it. So how you liking CS3? Personally I prefer CS2 just because I am so used to the button Positions.
