Blond Hunk !!

Sorry Palms, not a hunk, but you should be able to do something with this.

Original


Enjoy all.

Thanks Craig.

Here we go then.
1 dupe image twice
2 on top layer make a line drawing, (I've been using the sketch action Palms posted), set blend to multiply
3 click on layer below and add a blank layer and fill with white, it should look like the sketch again,
4 add a mask to this layer.
5 click on top layer and add an adjustment layer channel mixer set to monochrome. (adjust to taste later)
6 choose a brush - I made my own, a series of diagonal lines, I adjusted the dynamics for scatter, separation, size etc.
7 Paint on the mask you created on the blank layer with black or dark grey. (I've been starting with the grey then change to black later.)
8 when I'm satisfied I click on the top layer and merge all to a new layer and set blend to overlay, then either use USM or Bas relief to bring out moer of the stroke details.
9 for this one I added a gradient map adjustment layer to finish it off.
10 oh yes adjust the channel mixer AL to taste.


I think that was all besides a few minor tweaks here and there


If you check THIS it's an example of the brush etc.

Hope it helps.

Peter
