Thanks Craig!

Not sure it meets the requirements or not.

I'm glad, too, that you got over the upload hangup.

Requirements? None around here 'cept "Have Fun"!

Mine? More Impressionist rendered layers sliced and diced.

steve,

have you tried colorizing any of those engraver type images? was just looking at your piece in here again and thought of this.

danny,

was that done with an action/script primarily or something else? not asking for the whole workflow, just sort of the main points.

pierre,

umm, reminds me of stories of 60's acid trips quite wild. one question too, did you select out her lips and put them back later? they really kind of pop out here. not a bad thing, just curious.

Craig

I think of it more as Blade Runner replicant fashion. It will be all the rage in 2019.

I did bring the mouth back in on color burn, but I moved the corner of the mouth by mistake on some layers. I fixed it now. Her smile floating in front of her face would be a little too psychedelic (or maybe not; a concept worth exploring...). Thanks for noticing.

..for this one I used ArtRage to create the background.
The rest is playing around with a few layers of the sketched image.

First the eyes and mouth also had a very hard and dark sketch, but I reduced it to make her look a bit more dreamy..

Engraver allows for the manips in color or B&W (greyscale.)
And there is a setting called "split color" Attached are samples of both. Not sure what "split color" is trying to achieve, but I don't much care for it at this point.

Set the compression a little high on these images and they are not great representations, but it does show you that color is possible.

New pencil

Photo 1: open layer above background and fill with white. Reduce opacity until image is visible. Add reveal all mask and paint with black (5-10% opacity) soft brush. Keep increasing layer opacity until 100% is reached. Paint with white brush to correct errors and 100% white to eliminate un-desired background,
Photo 2: open layer above photo 1 and fill with white. Use opacity to obtain desired pencil look. If necessary, add reveal all mask to make final adjustments.
