Re: Old Town,Stockholm.

Sometimes just a touch of old faithful Buzz does the trick.

Pat, we'll have to stop meeting like this....hehe... Some nice stuff on here again from everyone, but you'll have to tell me how you get such a great result with Lucis.
Here's a try with one of those new brushes you linked me to "camel oils high bleed".

Re: Old Town,Stockholm.

Hi Patricia,

No problem.
  • Duplicate image to new layer.
  • Desaturate this new layer, then Duplicate it to a new layer.
  • You should now have 3 layers, top 2 are B&W copies of base layer.
  • Invert top layer, then set blend mode of that layer to Color Dodge.
  • This should give you a white layer.
  • Apply Gaussian blur, and adjust radius to give sketch effect you desire.
  • Finally duplicate the base layer and drag it to the top of your layer stack.
  • Set blend mode of this layer to Color, and adjust layer opacity to get colouring as you like it.

Hope this is clear, anything needs clarifying let me know.

Re: Old Town,Stockholm.

A method similar to Gary's except didn't put any colour back in. Added crosshatch brush strokes and faded with multiply to darken overall.
Shame but the brush stokes don't show up very well at this res.

Re: Old Town,Stockholm.

Steve...Buzz worked well on this one...I think it gives some nice effects...a couple of months ago in my digital photo mag they gave one of the Buzz programs free and i really like what it can do...
Pavel....Really nice....love the white edge too...Thanks for your nice comment!
John...I just play with the sliders in Lucis until i see what i like...but this time i used Neat image as well...someone in the Lucis forum recomended that!
I like how the camel oil brushes worked magic on the photo(with help from you of course)....will pass on more interesting brushes as i find them!
Gary...Thank you so much for taking the time to share the details of how you did your picture...will try it later in the day....painting live to do first!
Peter....Nice in BW, i really like the sketch effects...
dc...I love your Artweaver version...the brush strokes and colors on the water reflection are great...

Thank you all for playing...enjoyed each and every one!

Patricia....
