I love sketches and Danny's and Mal's are both great!
I used the emboss filter first, then aniso, then a modified lighting effects filter, hardlight blend. Merge, channel mixer, mono.

that's right mal, nothing like a good cup of coffee when all around is cold


nothing exciting or new; see the layers palette... the "glowing edges" layer was created from the "virtualPhotographer" layer...

Axel,

Thanks for the compliments!

I use PSP7 as my main imaging program. Along with that, I have about a ton of plugins.

First, I erased the background leaving it transparent. I then saved a selection of the opaque parts of the layer for later.

I created the sky background on a new layer using KPT6 "Sky Effects". I am not sure if you can buy this anymore from corel. This, however, is the same plugin as Rayflect "four seasons" which can be found on the internet. I set the sky color to yellow, and placed the sun in the right spot for the lighting, and made clouds to taste.

Next, I flattened the image and applied Adobe's "Poster Edges" (available with Adobe PhotoDeluxe).

For the next step, I wanted to add some texture to the sky. I selected the sky (by inverting the saved selection from earlier). I applied Fantastic Machines "Paint Engine" plugin using the "bad brush" preset. Twice. (Paint Engine available free from here: http://www.fantasticmachines.com/html/paint_engine.htm)

The final step was to remove some more detail, so I used Adobe's "smart blur". PSP's "Edge preserving smooth" would've worked, too.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!
Jeff

I also like sketches

I especially liked Danny's rendition!
After looking at his again, I almost decided not to post mine, but what the hey.

I copied the Green channel and pasted it on top of the BG.
Increased the canvas size a bit.
converted to LAB.
Loaded and saved the "lightness" channel as a selection.
Converted to RGB.
With the "Lightness" channel loaded as a selection, ran Impressionist: Pencil Sketch: Detailed Monochome.
Inverted the selection and Ran PSP:Stylizeiffuse - Lighten.
Made an elliptical selection and roughed it up with the lasso tool.
Inverted and feathered said selection.
Created a layer mask.
Created a white-filled layer below the masked layer.
stamped visible and ran PSP:Texture: Texturizer - Sandstone, 135, 5, Bottom Left.
Faded to Darken and lowered opacity.

This is such a great photo. The lighting is great, the pose is great, and Mal, you are great to share it with us. Thank you. And thanks to everyone who posted before me for sharing your artwork. I'm so impressed and humbled. Good job to all.

I used Byro's pencil sketch action and modified it some. Then I added a gradient to make it look like a blue sky but started playing around with blending modes and came up with this pinkish-grey background that I liked a whole lot better. And of course, I added the original back in at the very top and blended it with color mode and opacity settings.

Have fun all.

Janet

Great Sketch effects everyone!

2 questions:

1. what does the red type signify?

2. what is "Byro's pencil sketch action"

Extra credit question - Where can I get a talent implant?

1. re: Red type significance
* If you've done a search, search arguments "found" will show up in red.
* Colored type can be used for emphasis, to draw attention.

Am I close or way off base?

2. ByRo's action: Click HERE.

3. re: Talent transplant/implant.
You don't need one. Really.

~Danny~
