New Technique

Hi all,
Just wanted a bit of feedback on a new technique i've been learning. I've attached an image of one of my attempts.

The subtle eye and lip color is very effective within the overall image. I'd like to see just a slight hint of shoulder / blouse on the left side of the image. Completely isolating the head from the rest of the image looks a bit unnatural to me.

Overall this is a very appealing look. Well done.

Hi Paulie

The technique calls for converting to B/W using DigiDan. Is this purchased software? Can you achieve this effect using standard PS methodology?

No. It's referring to one of many methods for converting a color image to grayscale.

RE: Can you achieve this effect using standard PS methodology?
Absolutely...

http://www.digidaan.nl/indexframedig...xer/index.html

At the end of the tutorial is a download for an action if that sort of thing is interesting to you.

I believe I read somewhere that Digidaan's approach is a knockoff of (or very similar to) the Russell Brown technique. Take that with a grain of salt.

In any event since you're manipulating the image considerably to achieve the final sketch effect, I think using Channel Mixer in monochrome mode is more than adequate for this particular technique.
