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
3. Image/Adjustments/Invert
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

Sepia Tone:

13. Image/Mode/RGB
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
18. Flatten

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.

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!

thanks again for the help.

Lynda:

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.

Thx/Danny
