I worked these two stock photos in PS. First I took the "crowd" photo and chose FILTER > PIXELATE > MOSAIC and set the size to about "145". Next I created a new layer with the "girl", above the "crowd". I used a layer mask to fade out the background to the left of her face... creating a nice blend with the layer below. Then I applied "Difference" as the blend mode. I then duplicated this layer (so there were two of the "girl") and I left the "Difference" mode the same. I applied a motion blur on that one to give the smeared makeup effect. A little rendered lens flare in the pupil of the first "girl" layer... and voila. A Smoosh-terpiece. ;) I hope you like it.

Smoosh you've got to quit explaining how you do it, you confuse me after about 2 lines. All I know is you are VERY good at it and I love to see your work my dear. Fantastic job on this and just keep it up, you know what you're doing and that all that matters to me. lol

A smooshterpiece indeed. This is really a terrific capture. I had to write down the instructions in hope that someday i can produce a work of art such as this.

This is Great. I love the contrast of the sharp edges from the Mosaic filter.

I love your Smmosh-terpiece, it looks much better watched at full size than as a thumbnail. And I like that you explained what you've done to get this particular result. Good work from you...

Hey Smoosh, this is magnificent and very original. It is seductive and thought inspiring. The woman's eyes and lips are lushous. A beautiful subject indeed. The change from light to dark is full of desire. Just amazing work.
