Thank you for the link I must have a read through, i think keeping the colour was a good call looks good

Re: pencil sketch

Thanks for the darling baby picture. She's adorable.
My sketch started with a high key levels adjustment. Then a PSP script, Sheri's sketch. Then I put some color back in lips and eyes and used Impressionist for some pencil effect. Last I put on the stroke borders.

Combined the output of the Akvis Sketch and Impressionist plugins.

Re: pencil sketch

Some very nice work there - I must get myself a tablet but I'd like to try one out first.

Re: pencil sketch

Hi, Geoff! Welcome to RetouchPro! Explore and Enjoy!

Some people take to a tablet like a duck to water. For others it takes some getting used to. Maybe you can find someone to loan you a tablet for a couple weeks, especially someone who has recently upgraded because most folks who have a tablet would be loath to give it up for any length of time. :-)

I've only known one person who ever gave up on their Wacom. But if you search around this community you'll find several threads dealing with "should I get a tablet".
