I took my Sophia Loren portrait and had a bit of fun with it in
'Serif Photoplus X5' which I haven't really used that much, but it is quite a powerful program and I created this caricature of her. I suppose this should be in the digital area but it shows that you have the power to 'fix' a portrait if you have the right software.

I didn't know this was yours too, Ernest Scribbler! Totally different than your more celestial offerings. Sophia still looks good for her age now, but back in the day...

Thanks very much again ... (wow)!

Yes she was an absolute bute! The original picture I did of her is on the 2nd page of the graphite forum (if you hadn't noticed).

I use jasc paintshop pro to manipulate source pics sometimes, to get black and white and even increase brightness and contrast on the source before I begin.

Paintshop Pro is a good tool to have at a bargain price and it is handy that you can adjust levels as in DrawPlus X5.

I haven't got it myself but have heard good reviews. Inkscape is another tool that I do have and that is quite powerful and it is free. It does things that the DrawPlus can't do.
