Hey guys, haven't posted over here in a while, but I recently made a baseball wallpaper and figured I'd drop by here and let you guys have a look...Anyways I just finished the book, "Clemente: The Passion and Grace of Baseball's Last Hero" by David Maraniss, and really wanted to make a wall of him. I found this great pic and here's what I came up with... c+c much appreciated:

I'm really liking this one baseball ;-D

Did you end up smart blurring him or was the pic already vectored?

Killer wall.

It looks like he smart blurred it then erased it around the eyes. No idea though.

Naw, no smart blur... it was a combination of some levels adjustments, vectoring/shading, filters, etc. getting that part of it to look right was probably the hardest/most time consuming part of the wall
