pets gathered for a sketch

how do you like this little group ?

each sketched according a great tut on this forum ((sry forgot whose, (alan's ?) but thanks a million!))

open layer above background and fill with white. Reduce opacity until image is visible. Add reveal all mask and paint with black (5-10% opacity) soft brush. Keep increasing layer opacity until 100% is reached. Paint with white brush to correct errors and 100% white to eliminate un-desired background

I especially like the look you got on the horse...

Well done.

palms & danny, thanks for the encouraging comments

danny, on all the sketches I used a wax pencil on the mask instead of a soft brush and on the sketch of the horse i did some additional smudging on the result to hide some of the detailing

bert,

very nice. i happen to like the collie (or related breed if that's what it is).

i was wondering... when you're doing these, is there a method or step in there you could do to add a bit more contrast to highlight the images a bit more? some edge effect or contrast/lighten layer maybe? just a thought. i was thinking they might look 'better' (subjective case) if the lines were darker.

Jumping in Craig, If you duplicate the layer and set blend mode to multiply it makes the lines darker

craig,

yep it's a collie allright, a 6 yr old bitch named ziggy, self-appointed leader of the rest of the gang, including the horse

and yes, as palms rightly commented, you can dupe and blend to up the contrast. however my intention here was to go for a really sketchy look, rather than a contrasty one
