Stephen, city in a glass is a brilliant idea...and well done too!

Jerry, very soft look...like a fairyland, with a strawberry milkshake lake!

And here is the sketch..I had to reduce the size and jpeg quality to 1 so it would meet requirements..Hope the detail is not lost..

Really too easy!

Jerry, that's a great sketch...such soft colors...great blending. I love how the buildings repeat the colors of the land and water.

Goldcoin, excellent simplification and great outline job...love the moody color and especially the paper texture.

These are two different moods, and both are wonderful. You guys are outdoing yourselves!
-----------
Folks have given me some nice compliments on my colored sketch, so I think I owe it to you to "come clean" and tell you how reallllly easy it was! It's only two steps beyond the blur/dodge outline method.*

Keep original picture on bottom layer. *Dupe twice in b/w and outline with blur/dodge method (top b/w layer inverted set to color dodge then blurred very slightly and merged...levels if needed to increase contrast). Then merge these layers.

Now for the new steps:

1. Set the new b/w outline layer to LUMINOSITY.

2. Dupe original layer and place over the b/w layer and set mode to HARD LIGHT.

The outline ends up sandwiched between two originals. The hard light mode is what does the trick and puts back the bright colors. Just something I discovered trying different modes.

Just playing around with regular PS7 filters. I think I used most of them.
