Creative interpretations: Car - Classic Woody
Nice ride, captured by K. Lenard.
I stumbled on this effect "by accident." Required the Impressionist plugin.
1. Duplicate Background.
2. Apply Impressionist Pencil Sketch: Detailed Mono
3. Change layer blend mode from Normal to Lighten.
4. Duplicate Background again, drag to top of layer stack.
5. Apply Impressionst Crayon: Short choppy strokes. This "chops up" the image somewhat.
6. Apply Impressionst Charcoal: Default.
7. Change layer blend mode from Normal to Darken.
I didn't like the parking stall stripe. Should have cloned over it before starting.
8. Create a new layer at the top of the layer stack.
9. Select Clone tool. Turn on options Aligned and i]Use all layers[/i]. Set brush opacity to about 80%, flow to 60%.
10. Clone out the stripe. Note: Doing this cloning on a separate layer = ultimate flexibility. Start over, add a layer mask, etc.
Car shadow was too dark.
11. Add a Levels adjustment layer at the top of the layer stack.
12. Drag the middle slider to the left until you're okay with the car shadow tone. (My setting: 1.81. Use your own judgment.) Don't worry that everything is washed out.
13. Ctrl + I to invert the Adjustment Layer's mask (turns it black).
14. Select Brush tool. Turn on Airbrush option. Opacity ~ 60%; Flow ~ 60%.
15. Set foreground color to white by pressing D and X keys.
16. Place brush over image and right-click, bringing up the Brushes Palette. Choose a Soft Round brush (makes no difference which one) and make the size 50-70 pixels using the slider at the top.
17. Airbrush shadow area to lighten it. The longer you airbrush, the lighter it will become.
I still thought the shadow was a bit dark, so I set the blend mode of the Levels layer to Screen which, for me, did the trick.
At this point you might want to restore some detail to the car. Optionally, duplicate the Background, drag the duplicate to the top of the layer stack, set the layer blend mode to Luminosity, Layer > Add Layer Mask > Hide all (add a hide all layer mask) and airbrush white in areas of the image where you want to restore detail, e.g., around the headlights or grill or wherever.
Lineart xero graphics filter
Here's a different take...
You'll need the Line Art filter from the free Xero collection (set 3), which can be download here:
Line Art is similar to Photoshop's Find Edges, but has options and controls.
Here are the settings used on this interpretation. Note: On other images, these settings will almost for sure not work. You'll need to experiment.
1. Duplicate Background.
2. Filter > Xero > Line Art. Tone=54, Drawing, Line Intensity=7, Monochrome
3. Duplicate Background; move duplicate to top of layer stack.
4. Image > Adjustments > Desaturate
5. Press D to reset foreground/background colors to b/w
6. Apply Colored Pencil filter (4, 8, 50)
7. Change the layer blend mode from Normal to Overlay.
So far so good, but it almost always bugs me when I see the Colored Pencil strokes all going in the same direction. So...
8. Duplicate Background; move duplicate to top of layer stack.
9. Image > Adjustments > Desaturate
10. Select > All
11. Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal
12. Apply Colored Pencil filter (4, 8, 50)
13. Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal again. Notice the pencil strokes going in the opposite direction!
14. Change the layer blend mode from Normal to Overlay.
I added Hide All layer masks to both Colored Pencil layers (Layer > Add Layer Mask > Hide all) and airbrushed white on the layer masks to selectively reveal their effects.
That is about one of the best automated sketch I have seen. Thanks for the idea. I will be trying this latter tonight or this week. Great job.
Photoshop only-without impressonist plug in
I was trying to get the impressonist look on this one. used the art history brush+layers+new adjustment pattern
When I work on a mac I miss impress

Just couldn't leave well enough alone...
Dupe BG filter- light gausian blur
Curves adjustment layer
Dupe adj layer [opacity 43%] Blend- luminosity
Color balance adj layer,
Dupe prev layer, pin light, 39%, On this layer- judicious erasure
dupe BG, filter- find edges, fill 72%, more erasure to separate the woodie from background.
Love this photo
filters- cutout, poster edges, rough pastels
chan mixer- red and green, masked, painted in yellow
copy, apply image, screen
apply image (filters layer, normal)
