Re: Creative interpretations: Infant reading Newspaper

What a fantastic photograph. :-)

I first did a loose QM selection of the child and newspaper and jumped the selection to a new layer. Then inverted that selection and jumped the background to a new layer.

I then ran my Line Art method on both layers so that I could work on the child and background separately. I added a mask to the child sketch and with low opacity brush painted back more of the underlying colors.

On the background sketch layer I used a sea sponge brush with light opacity and painted on a mask to both bring up the color and smear the colors together.

Added a small amount of noise to the masks on both sketch layers. Merged all, added canvas and borders.

Thanks for the "play", Danny.

Two great ones, but I really like the second one, Palms. Frameable!

Re: Creative interpretations: Infant reading Newspaper

Love the PJ's!
Sketching in Photoshop starting with photocopy filter ( had not really used this before). Masks for cleanup - added sketch lines where needed, dodging and burning to even out lines, Paintengine posterize to simplify the color.
Klassylady - too funny and nicely done.

I really like the second one! What did you use for the textured effect? It's quite lovely!
