Legacy-Art, I did give this tute before, but I don't remember the thread. Here it is again:
1. Convert image to b&w.
2. Dupe background layer and set mode to Screen.
3. Adjust opacity.
4. Open new layer and fill with white.
5.Add a “hide all mask” (black) and paint with white brush.
(Use high opacity to outline figure and remove unnecessary elements, and use low opacity to brush in on face and hair. A black brush, of course, corrects any mistakes.)
6.If necessary repeat steps 4 and 5 to fine-tune image.
I did add a paper texture with Impressionist, but that's not necessary. Have fun.
Much appreciated Alan!
Alan thank you, i really love the results!
Its nice when people share isn't it
Very nice interpretation, Christine...
It was nice to see you pop in.
BTW: Thanks for the referral to the nice folks at Focal Press.
Good looking little fellow
Knocked out image
lightened center of bg.
Changed shirt color (it needed to happen )
Some smudging, although not apparent.
Simplified at different times.
several blending modes.
i like that. i think that's the best in the lot so far. i'd take it over mine. good color, good texure, good background, good contrast...really nicely done!
i like yours too. good blending of the shirt to match the face. nice soft look without distorting the base picture!
