This is wonderful processing work with Topaz! I also like the composition with the detail centered! Great work Jack!

Another beautiful sketch!

Bonvilston from Cardiff, United Kingdom

Another nice one. Could you delete some of the background distractions and then do it so that it just shows the main subject ? I think that would transform the image

Fascinating. There are swirls, sketches, and inversions. With a beautiful effect. I love the almost psychedelic background effect.

Self-Indulgence from Chicagoland, United States

A little opacity over the original.. maybe some streaking here and there to look like brush strokes and you could make it look half painted. :) You can use my pastels too if you want to!

11 May 2010 6:28pm

@Self-Indulgence: This was done for sheer fun. If it hadn't been for the software that did all of the work, I would never have done it. However, I must admit that I do love pencil drawings.
