Had to give this a try. This is "Lisa's pencil sketch", basically, but with angled strokes run on the desaturated layer and 2 duplicates of the original on top, one in color mode, one in linear burn. I think.

Followed most of the steps, but painted out a few lines and softened others.

You people have inspired me to try this one also. I did it last night and was tired so can't recall what I used to arrive at it. Darn it, means I can't dupe it myself if I wanted to.

It's a sort of sketch I think.

However I do have OnOne Photo Tools 2, Filter Forge, and Topaz, and as couple of other tools to play with.

It may not meet the original criteria but this is how I see it.

Re: Tutorial: Colored chalk (Lisa Peters inspired)

I'd recently discovered a tutorial by Swampy that explained how to create line art. With a few embellishments, I've been sort of going overboard lately creating these type of images.

Using the Sunflower image, I created these two.

For the B&W line art, in Swampy's tutorial after applying the Minimum filter I than apply Gaussian blur at a value between 5 to 15. This really gives a nice clean yet darker line.

The Coloured Sunflower was done from the B&W version. I then added several layers. One that I filled with a light green setting the blend mode to Color. The second layer (top) was a duplicate of the merged layers that created the B&W version.

On this top layer, using a small-ish brush I painted the center of the sunflower brown and the petals a pale yellow. I then set this layer's blend mode to Color as well.

Thanks for looking.

Re: Tutorial: Colored chalk (Lisa Peters inspired)

there are many techniques for making sketches. i have quite a few filter forge filters devoted to this. i also know several paint shop pro methods. at its heart, a digital sketch is a a find edges. that doesnt mean that using find edges is the only way to make one, but that is pretty much what sketches boil down to. you are trying to bring out the important lines of an image.

following that idea, i tried a different method to make a sketch. this one starts with 'find all edges' and moves on to simplifying by contrast.
