This is one of the recent portrait I work from photo. Mostly oil and art pen then knife. Apply "sweet dream" filter at the end but because of the canvas texture, it didn't show much but it's good to soften the paint overall. Still experimenting the steps.

Aww.Hanzz..wow..thanks so much for the quick response and the kind words. :) Yes, the lighting and the face spent a little bit longer but still only took around 2 hours shorter than the one from imagination.

Thanks Paul, Katie and Caesar for the kind words. :) Yes, she likes it but I am not that satisfied yet. Still haven't got the right ways/steps to do it as I like and faster the process. I am not good at work straight from photos but it's a good practice again which I haven't done for awhile.

This is breathtakingly beautiful, Pai! You've captured your friend's spirit and beauty in this portraiture. There's a softness to it that I simply just want to wrap my arms around it. So very lovely.....!!!

Thank you mannafig, Alexandra, Eddie, Valerie, jonwood, Eileen, Bob and AT-TA for all your wonderful kind words of this painting. It's new try to use the Art Pen tool for blending which I learned from Misterpaint. Just want to get out the comfort zone and use all different tools to see what is the difference during the process. Again, thanks for taking time to look in and commenting. :):):)

May i ask Pai, what do you mean by a "sweet dream" filter?

Thanks so much Evart and barnburner for looking in and liking it.

@AT-TA

This is a filter provided by our Misterpaint's contribution, please look at this link:

It soften the image which I think people who use photo editing programs (eg. photoshop) has this plug-in. It's my first try on filter when AR3 has this new features. Quite intersting. But please also read Juz's explanation of it may possible cause crash but I live with it if I want some fun on the image.
