Alcar can you...

Alcar could you possibly do us a tutorial on how to make the pencil drawing please? I tried your instructions of...

Open layer above background and fill with white. Reduce opacity until image is visible. Add reveal all mask and paint with black (5-10% opacity) soft brush. Keep increasing layer opacity until 100% is reached. Paint with white brush to correct errors and 100% white to eliminate un-desired background,
Photo 2: open layer above photo 1 and fill with white. Use opacity to obtain desired pencil look. If necessary, add reveal all mask to make final adjustments.


But either i am just too blonde or i need more guidance, please if you have time would you make a tutorial.

Pleaseplease

Ella

Pencil tutorial

Ella, I see you found my old tute. Here's what I did on the Nathaniel photo using my pse3 software:

1. Convert image to b&w.
2. Dupe background layer and set mode to Screen.
3. Adjust opacity.
4. Open new layer and fill with white.
5.Add a “hide all mask” (black) and paint with white brush.
(Use high opacity to outline figure and remove unnecessary elements, and use low opacity to brush in on face and hair. A black brush, of course, corrects any mistakes.)

I sure I haven't explained this too well, but if you have any trouble, let me which step is the problem.

Alan
