Patches - color sketch...
I love it Lynda - great detail in the fur!!
Can you expand a bit on "sketched the image then gave it a little buzz"? Do you mean that you used a sketch technique (like Trimoon's) with color - and then ran the Buzz Pro filter?
I was going to post a link to my sketch tutorial, but I did things a little different this time. I used a Motion Blur instead of the Gaussian Blur. I also added the info on the buzz.
To Make a Color Sketch:
1. Get your image ready - unsharp mask, curves, levels, what ever is necessary to have a good image
2. Create duplicate layer
4. Mode/Grayscale - don't flatten
5. Mode/RGB – don’t flatten
7. Image/Adjustments/Levels – add highlights by sliding the white arrow to the left. .
8. Image/Adjustments/Brightness-Contrast – you want to take the contrast slider to the minus usually between -10 and -30.
9. Create duplicate layer
11. Blending Mode colors dodge – should be all white, if not go back to step 8 and take the contrast down a little more.
12. Filter/Blur/Motion Blur – adjust so you can see as much detail as you desire.
13. Flatten image
14. Image/Adjustments/Levels – Use to bring out detail.
15. Image/Adjustments/Brightness-Contrast – Adjust to your liking.
19. Open original image.
21. Change the opacity in the layers palette. You want to see just a hint of color.
23. Filter/buzz/ - add Simplifier One twice – set first at Remove - 1200, Both and set the second at Remove – 600, Both.
Great results, super detail, Lynda.
I'll be referrring to your variation in a future update of the newly created photo-art basics "Pencil Sketch" thread.
This is like a Christmas present -- after Christmas. And think: No shopping!
