I love black and white. I ran a good buzz on her, then did VP watercolor, kinda heavy, then PM hand drawing, then merged with the original that was buzzed.

The second one I buzzed the PM hand drawing first to eliminate the "dirt"

I had to give this another shot...

BG same NeatImage smoothed starting point as my 1st post
A: Copy BG. AccentedEdges
B: Copy BG. NotePaper. Invert. (Difference. 100%)
C: Copy BG. Cutout. (Overlay, 45%)
D: The torn edges outline sketch from my 1st post. (Multiply, 33%)
E: MergeVis (A,B,C,D). AngledStrokes (Normal, 49%) Layermask to refine
F: MergeVis(A,B,C,D). DiffuseGlow (Normal, 27%). Layermask to refine
G: Curves Adj. to darken the lighter areas some.

This made a respectable pencil (plus charcoal?) sketch I think.

Dave: Very inventive frosting concept and the inverse white on black BG is striking.

Amy: Always glad to see your creativity. Keep 'em coming.

I agree. Ya done good. The NotePaper-Invert-Difference combo is awesome. You've inspired me to tinker!

Trying to improve on sketching her in Painter. Wanted a softer look as I felt the last one was too harsh, hard looking. This took a while but enjoyed the exprimenting as always in Painter.

P.S. This wasn't cloned, I used a sketch outline using Xero Pastellise filter applied in PSP first. I worked with the photo alongside my canvas in Painter. Deleted the pastellised outline when finished and placed new drawing onto a new white layer. Did some touching up in PSP after.

-----------
just used channel mixer (50, 70, 30, -20, mono), stamp vis, 4 copies, and used the "pencil" in curves on each layer, simple horizontal lines...

A great pic but I was having difficulty resolving the breast line angle. Lqqker, I think you're tight crop has solved that problem.

Here's my Pamela.

I used an art history tutorial I found in the tutorials forum, then messed around a bit with Gaussian blur on every area but her face. I used Leah's B&W from color tutorial to take the color out.
