I've been trying to make some Art-History brushes to do (coloured) pencil sketches.
This is what I've got so far.

Thank you everyone

pls understand the poor english. ^^

following is my methods in upper posting.

lasso(feather 30) and delete selections around human
duplicate the background layer
desaturate the copy layer
filter-brushstroke-crosshatch
opacity adjust 40%
duplicate the copy layer
filter-artistic-dry brush
opacity adjust adequately
mergy the copy layers
layer masker around the eyes

And I knew this community yesterday, but it's fantastic.
I want to learn many things in photography and retouching and so on.
So, I hope your kind advices and helps continuously.

one more work

For one more picture, I tried it more like paintings.

- duplicate the original
- layer mode color burn and invert
- gaussian blur 10
- flatten images
- duplicate background
- filter artistic drybrush and brush strokes crosshatch
- image adjustment curves - some darken

One of the best digital frames I've seen in a long time, too. It compliments the artwork. Say a few words about its origin, would ya?

thanks danny

I am sorry for not providing the details earlier. I used painter- pencils. Mainly thin and thick and blender for the shading. I suppose the frame is Bud's.
Your compliment will further encourage me.
regards,
