I was just thinking....

It would be fun to have a contest where the posted images are not seen until the voting period starts...

It would be interesting to see everyone's submissions without being potentialy influenced by the other participants' work...

I can't agree more.. looking through the various pictures always gives new ideas.

Since I have no idea how to go about this.....

There has to be an easier way! (Using PS CS 2)

1. I separated the face into its individual components so that I could treat them differently.
2. I used dark strokes on the hair and adjusted levels for the desired effect.
3. Dark strokes on the eyebrows and eye lids with a little freehand fill in.
4. Posterized everything else to 8 levels.
5. Cross-hatched the face and lips.
6. Liberally applied the smudge tool and eraser.

I chose to posterize/smudge and stop where I did because I didn't want it to look just like a photograph.

I am pretty happy with it for a first try although I see better submissions along the same line. The hair is probably the worst offense as it looks streaked and some may not like that.

Very educational and great fun!

I updated my entry...biggest change is that the brush I made (don't worry, it was completely digital) was causing odd splotches...so I subdued that, and gave the face and hair more shape overall. Pencil sketches (mine, at least) tend to get pretty dark fast...same method, but I broke out the Cintiq to speed things along...

Like a lot of other folks...

...I redid my entry. I used a whole new technique that I will share if I win. I hope this one comes even closer to a sketch.

Tutorial from the winner

I can't seem to find any tutorial of this kind in Retouchpro although we do abound in talent here. It would be great if the winner of this contest or any of the top 5, could write one for Retouchpro. Writing a tutorial is just as hard as doing the entry, so this is probably considered more of a punishment than a reward for the winner.

Anyway, just a thought...

mseydel,

Your current contest entry does not meet the rules.

Quote:
From the Rules:

7. Only one entry per person. You can change your entry up to the deadline.

From FAQs… Note you are not allowed more than one entry so you will have to replace your original entry or delete it. If there are more than one entry per person at the end of a contest, all entries for that person will be disqualified.
Please correct this to prevent your entry from being disqualified.

~Thanks
