Samantha Sketching in Color

This is done using a variation of the my Sketching Tutorial.
Do steps 1 to 18 and these 6 new steps

1. Using Smart blur (Radius 100 Threshold 100 Medium: High Mode: Normal)

2. Next I smudge all the hard edges soft (smudge tool set at 20% opacity)

3. Now make a copy of the background layer if it’s in color and set as the top layer or open a new image and copy & paste on drag over.

4. Set blending mode at Hard Light giving the image color

5. If the color is to soft make a new layer and add some more color
(Play with the blending mode for the look you need

6. Flatten layers and sign your name

A suggestion, Steve...

As you make updates to your tutorials, put a date and version number on the front page (somewhere), e.g., ver 2.1, 9/30/03. That would be help keep the editions straight and make it easy to determine if one has the most current version.

The steps for adding color are a welcome addition. I'm sure many (myself included) appreciate this modification.

Thank you for this, Steve...

Here's my attempt at applying it (with a few tweaks to the basic method - I have a reduced opacity anisotropic diffused layer sandwiched in there somewhere as I think I'd overdone the grain at one point).
