  1. Yikes! Brilliant. I’ve said it before; I say it again: you are a genius. Ain’t *nobody* has the photoshoppng skills you have, ma’am!!

    How’d you get the Coulter face to blend in so well with the rest of the cover? No, no don’t tell me. Can’t… stop… Must… go… read PS tutorial…

  2. Like you need any help. I don’t think so. But here’s what I did…

    Tild, on the face, with this particular one adjusted the color with the color balance. In this case took it real yellow then added in some red and blue. Think I darkened and upped contrast a bit. Then used the artistic filter for paint daubs wide sharp, and then added a bit of highlight from the film grain filter. Then did a slight overall noise>despeckle filter. Before going in and drawing in lines on a pic that I want to take to looking like an illustration, I’ll do the paint daubs filter, regular or extra wide sharp and sometimes add a bit of film grain before or after.
