Creative challenge 001: Pamela in BW
You don't need to apply filters or plugins, but you may, as long as the final result consists of black, white and shades of gray. No color.
Wanna merge this with other images? Sure.
Replace the background? Sure.
Good luck and have fun.
Cleaned up noise
Ran the action
This is not a very good photo to properly show the usefulness of the included action. A photo with more color variation works best. The action is very sensitive to small slider movements--especially in combination. It allows for an infinite number of pseudo-filters; ie: red, orange, green, etc...in several shades.
Great results everyone and welcome along Nansi, looking forward to viewing more of your creations.
Auto Contrast Enhancement
Desaturated to gray
Edge Preserving Smooth - 3
Duped bottom layer twice
L2 - Soft Light
Merged bottom two layers.
Top Layer - Levels/My High Key White setting.
On this same layer used the eraser throughout using
Dry Brush for her hair, default brush on her skin and to bring
back some highlights for her features.
For interest, added some texture to her straps and dress using
Van Gogh Texture along with a Camel Hair Brush low opacity.
Smudged skin entirely.
Merged all - duped bottom layer
L2 - Hard Light - 16% - Duped this layer
L3 - Multiply 30%
Merged these layers.
Lessened Brightness slightly.
Applied a criss-cross texture.
Thoroughly enjoyed this challenge and thanks for the wonderful photo!
First ran Neat Image. Channel Mixer set to Monochrome. Curves Adjustment layer (see attached). Ran Cartoon action.
Mine is perhaps too simplistic compared to the great work posted so far. (Yours too Nanci - welcome ) But it is my best sketch outline technique.
1. Resize & Decolored the image w/ channel mixer (mostly using red)
2. NeatImage to smooth everying out
3. HighPass 3.5 then Sketch>TornEdges 25/7/10.
4. Add layer mask to touch up rough spots. (esp. lips & eyes)
5. Put a light gray fill layer below the sketch
6. Add a fill layer of WashedWaterColorPaper. (Overlay, 62%)
Oh...I love that Duv!!! Well done Mark too....I bet when you invert that it'll look like a chalk sketch.
Thanks a bunch Janet. Great challenge isn't it...?
