Colored Pencil Sketch of two cute children

Hi there - hopefully the image will behave and upload this time. I inverted original image, changed to color dodge blend and then blurred this. Then some dodging and burning. MargaretM

This was cloned with a calligraphic grainy pen(modified) in painter8, next brought into ps7, layer multiply-blended, and angled strokes, low opacity, applied to it.

Hello, Margaret:

My compliments on your persistence on getting your image uploaded and for sharing the "how to" details. It's nice to have another from the great state of Florida join us!

Welcome aboard.

~Danny~

Judy: I'm sure glad you're exploring so many Painter brush variants. (It's saving me a lot of time. This one's another winner.

Pencil Portrait..

HI all.
Danny - thanks for your welcome. Florida is great this time of year - except for the yellow pollen - and the Spring Breakers.
From all the great renditions here I know I need Painter ( also need a sugar daddy!)
This pencil sketch is basically the same technique as the colored pencil one - jst done in greyscale with extra dodging and burning.

Used GIMP 2.2

I put it through the "old picture" script fu filters. I then did an unsharp mask.

To be sure it will upload, I saved for web in PS7.

I think the background helps draw the eye to the subjects. I like the "messy" because it is real. You can isolate the subjects and remove the background. I do that all the time with the posters I make.

Do check out the link to GIMP in the above post. It is a free image editor. It is reviewed on this site, but the review is out of date. It's got a ways to go before it catches up with PS, but it is pretty good, and free.

Thanks for the compliment.

Al

Until now I haven't had time to be active in this group, but stopped by tonight and thought it would be fun to work on one of your pictures. If I've uploaded this incorrectly, or made some other mistake, please let me know. As I live in a remote and rural area of coastal Oregon, where high-speed access is difficult to achieve, I haven't spent much time on forums such as this one, and so may have made one or more errors. Please bear with me-- I learn quickly! <g>
