I love Chinese Red, but in saving this for the web, the colors really shifted to more of an orange.

I took a completely new approach this this.

Did some color correction by doing an Auto Levels on all three (RGB) channels.

Made a duplicate file and completely desaturated then ran the PS Graphic Pen Filter. I then reduced this file to a BitMap (1 bit graphic, totally black and white). Then select all copied and went back to my original file.

Created a new Channel and Pasted in the B/W sketch then added this mask to a copy of the original and set the blend mode to Multiply. Added a little bevel and emboss. I duplicated this masked layer three or four times to bring up the color and merged all these duplicates and set the blend mode to Luminacity. Added a layer below with a bright red fill and some dragon scale texture.

The color shift doesn't do it justice, but it was a fun experiment.

Sewing level two.

Well I'm getting better with my sewing technique. I created the orientation map using PS's Cutout filter which gives a better sew stitch angle imo. I also (you may or may not noticed) did an outline stitch by using edge detect and Potrace and porting the vector into Mayura and using a dashed line setting for the lines. Hope you all like.
