I've got to admit that I've never really liked the dark moody style (especially for this image, with two lovely smiles in it).

Here's my attempts, one watercolours (Impressionist to get some lines, then PE with a waterwash efect, plus some screen/overlay/colour layers.), the other colour pencils (basic BW sketch, colour overlays, PE for some lines, another screen/colour overlay set).

<edit> Having seen the results in thumbnails, I think the first is nice, the cartoony one is rubbish.

Lovely picture. Tried a dodge and burn grey layer, followed by a dark brown layer in overlay blending mode.

Impressionist style djroil24. Deepen the background to put emphasis on subject.

Craig and Nancy, it's called the Andrzej Dragan Technique, and if you Google it, you'll find tons of info on how to achieve the look. It's very in right now

Oh, almost forgot to thank you, Craig, for the zip file. I've downloaded it to my desk but haven't tried to install it in PSP yet.

nancy,

thank you. i had sort of figured that, but nice to get a confirmation. and since catherine is now telling me to 'go look it up, you lazy bum' i'll let this drop

and catherine,

you're welcome just make sure to put it in the patterns folder, not the textures, though i suppose it would work there also. i have a bunch of others as well and if i ever get a web site that i actually do something with, i'll probably post a bunch there. there are a ton of these things out there on the web and you can also make your own. if i remember correctly, you can make any image into a .bmp file and put it in 'patterns' or 'textures' and they'll work. at least you could in psp 7. not sure if that still works with psp now using the .pspimage extension, but it shld.

and fluffbutt (boy, does that name conjur up a strange image!), doesnt look like rubbish to me

Craig

Craig, I would never call you a lazy bum!! You seem like a very motivated kinda guy. PM me if you have any trouble finding those Dragan tuts. It seems you and I started looking for a believable crackled paint texture about the same time. I've found some very cool textures at this site

sorry, that was a tease as much at myself as it was towards you. i recently got in trouble by telling someone else to 'look it up!' the 'lazy bum' part was just for emphasis and, i am motivated here. it's the chores at home where i get lazy

yes, the cracked paint effect was one we worked on in this thread for a while. i was never quite satisfied. i had a pretty specific look in mind i wanted to get to and never quite did. this newly found 'cracked paint' pattern comes very close and with a bit of tweaking it could possibly suffice.

as for the dragan style, the thread over at innographfx seemed to say it was primarily achieved through selective dodge and burn. an interesting style and i can see why folks are taking it up. quite dynamic.

and thank you for the link. i'm always looking for new textures and patterns and plugins. so, let me reciprocate: http://www.justkiss.com/psp/resources.htm you may already know of that one and if so, i can post another

Craig

Fox54Black, welcome to RetouchPRO,
From your join date seems that you've been "lurking" some time now.
Very glad to see that you finally took the plunge!

The subtle cracked-paint effect came out real nice. How did you do that?
