Meet my Granddaughter, Hope.
If there is anyone that needs to know how to do a sketch, I will be happy to add more detail.

Here are the detailed instructions. Please let me know if you have any problems or comments.
To Make a Sketch:
1. get your image ready - unsharp mask, curves, levels, what ever is necessary to have a good image.
2. make duplicate copy, duplicate layer
4. Mode/Grayscale - don't flatten
5. On your layers menu change the blend mode to Color Dodge
6. Filter/blur/Gaussian Blur - adjust so you can see the sketch come through
7. Flatten image
8. Image/Adjustments/Brightness-Contrast (just to darken the sketch slightly.
That is how I do my sketches. The rest of this effect is as follows:
9. Duplicate layer
10. Filter/Stylize/Find Edges
11. Filter/Stylize/Emboss - adjust to your liking. I used angle-135, height- 2, amount 186
12. In layers change the blend mode to overlay and flatten
14. Duplicate layer
15. Image/Hue-Saturation-I used hue-40, saturation-20 and adjusted the lightness.
16. set foreground color to R-246, G-244, B-243 and fill layer
17. Adjust blending mode in layers to Multiply
Here is a little hint that is very useful for me. When I am working on an image I use the Notes tool in PS7 to keep track of what I am doing. Then to make a tutorial all I have to do is edit it a little cut and paste it into the forum.
Beautiful sketch and thankyou for sharing the details. I am trying your technique even as we speak on a landscape..
Thanks for posting how you make your sketches... I gave it a try and here's the result, my granddaughter Makayla.
Here is my attempt at Lynda's technique- a picture of my aunt Beth.
I checked out your gallery and love your oil paintings. Maybe you could post a tutorial on that technique as well. Thanks!
I used your sketch procedure to produce a background for the village picture in the photoart forum..Attached is the sketch that I used. I then tried hand tinting it..
thanks again for the help.
Wonderful thread. Great to see so much interest. Like DJ said, great results from those who apply your instructions confirm they were very clear.
Question on step 12: "In layers change the blend mode to overlay and flatten"
In the "Hope sketch," did you by chance lower the opacity on the Emboss layer? Seems a little of the Emboss effect goes a long ways.
