Tutorial: Pencil Sketch method III using program Photo Brush
I discovered that the Paint-Brush equivalent of a PS action called "Watercolor and Ink" rendered what (to me) was a unique and pleasing pencil sketch-like result. See below for a few more comments on this application.
After running the Watercolor & Ink action and saving the file (.PSD format supported), I opened the result in Photoshop and did a little fine tuning with angled strokes and adding a little skin tone via History Brush.
An image of the layers palette with layer-by-layer details is included with the attachment. Let me know if you have questions
A couple more comments about Photo-Brush:
Photo-Brush includes a very good "old photo" filter, a clone by tracing feature (similar to Painter, Deep Paint, et al), integrated B/Works [a low-tech version of Flaming Pear's Mr. Contrast plugin], a plugin manager that can be launched to automatically find (and setup pointers to) any and all folders containing .8bf files, and a whole lot more. For $38 (as of 6/02), you get a lot of value for not much money.
There is a considerable amount of overlap with applications like PhotoImpact and Paintshop Pro, but if you have neither of these Photo-Brush is a very cost effective supplement to Photoshop.
Great review Danny. I like the results of the example you attached.
I think you mentioned that you ran the Watercolor & Ink action and then saved in PSD format and opened it up in PS. Does that mean that it does not run as a PS plugin? Some of these programs will run seperately but also list themselves in with PS plugins like Dream Suite for instance. Just curious.
