Re: Blond Hunk !!

The more I played with this one the more I butchered it. Does she have a sun tan?

Re: Blond Hunk !!

Guilty! the subject line caught me lol

Some really great sketch effects done!
I've been working on a chalky/pastelly method and it worked nice with this image.

been playing with grey gradients, highpass and impressionist.

Re: Blond Hunk !!

Nice image selection Peter.

As always, some really nice images posted, which invariably grab my interest.

Thought I'd try a "Rembrandt" look, just for something to do.

Re: Blond Hunk !!

I tried an Ink and Watercolor with this one. This was done just with native Photoshop filters.

I have tried to do a B&W sketch without luck. Peter S and Palms, I would sure like to learn the technique you two use to achieve your B&W sketches.

Thanks Gerry
If you check out post #9 in this thread you'll get a rough idea of what I've done.
Plus if you check other posts of mine there a little more scattered about.
Please don't ask me to write a tute, I get writers block at the thought of it.

Peter
