Here's the basics of the sketch I did.

Using Photoshop CS.

Increase size to 300ppi

Duplicate layer
change layer to black and white by whichever means you prefer (I use the free black and white filter from the plugin site).

Duplicate again - hide top layer for now.
Add a new layer above the background layer and fill with canvas colour.
Convert first duplicate to outline sketch and mode to soft light.
This is to give an outline so you know where to draw.

Activate the top layer adjust contrast slightly. (levels,curves whatever you prefer).

Add a hide all mask - set layer mode to darken.

Using the dry nedia brush set select 'pastel on charcoal paper' brush - adjust size (12-20) and set opacity to pen pressure.

Now just scribble lines as wanted on the mask using white. (Hide sketch layer to view progress)

Hide sketch layer.

Have fun - thats the most important part.

There's also a very nice watercolour tutorial in this mag - not like any I've seen before so thats next for me to try.

Christine

This technique does not work well on the original photo. I used my last Post done in Painter for this. So if you have an image on a white background and one that you've worked on by smudging or painted in Painter will work well.

Original Layer - Buzz lightly retaining some detail. Dupe this layer.
L2 - Plugin/Namesuppressed/Autochromatic - Dupe this layer
L3 - Plugin/Virtual Painter/Collage/Default - Blend Mode - Color (L)
Delete L2 and Merge the rest.

Please, oh please, don't ask me how I ended up with this...it is 3:22 and I have a baby girl in my lap who FINALLY is asleep, and I have no brain power left whatsoever.

Here's another take on Desiree. I used a RTP tutorial on making a magazine cover.
