Hi All,
Still playing with the lines on transparent layers thing.

PSP

Ssoftcoloursketch script.

One layer of Little inkpot Thredgeholderpro. Then ranFlaming pear Ghost to make the layer transparent except for the lines.

Another layer with LittleInkPot Sketcher - NiceSketch. Then Ghost as above.

Promoted background and reduced slider to 30% to get the conte effect.

Vignetted and sandstone texture added.

Painted in highlights on glasses with white, and a little on eyes.

Addictive this isn't it.

Regards to all,
Mitch.

mitch,

horribly addictive

i like both of those, though the first one a bit more. great contrast sketch.

what is the ssoftcoloursketch script? is that a script action in PS or something else?

Craig

Hi Craig,

Glad you liked them. Once you start trying to work out a method it really gets you.

The softcoloursketch script is one I use a lot, It's one I collected from sheilsoft when they were all free. They now charge £3.00 for 35 scripts, some useful -some wild. My one works on PSP8 which I seem to be using most, though when you buy them now they have different versions for PSP7,8 and 9. Very much a PSP script - PS has the same thing but there called actions.

A link for it to check out -

Sheilsoft

Regards to all,
Mitch.

Work in progress.

Outlined my technique here so I won't repeat. Still have some additional work to do, but you call can still feel free to critic.

lkroll,

how about removing his glasses before you do what you did?
why? cause his glasses are the one and only thing on that pic that include straight lines. everything else is wavy, or soft, or blurred, or something... what do you think?
but! even if you'll leave it as it is, i like it. quite much

I sometimes get too focused thana

So concerned about the process that I didn't even think about the final look. One of those forest for the trees type oversights. I'm still trying to get the process to be more natural and hopfully will figure out how to do that soon. Glad you liked the overall effect anyway.

Little lines sketch.

This sketch illustration was easily done use a combination of Little Ink Pot's Chalkaholic filter and Impressionist. Some saturation adjustments as well. Hope you all like it.

dbuckle,

Had to make up for a bad experiment Craig.

Not the first time I had to do a makeup.


As a side note, this one took less then 10 minutes (would have been less then 2 if I didn't have to do a lot of tinkering; I sometimes am too much a perfectionist). Filters are wonderful.
