Re: pencil sketch

Sorry, of course.....

Used PS CS3.... most importantly a Wacom and a great tut by Tim Shelbourne:

I didn't desaturate in part 5 because I wanted to keep the colour.

Re: pencil sketch

NL Filter (high sharpen), Grain Extract, merged down and ran GREYCstoration on that layer. Set the result to Overlay a few times to get most of the effect. I then blended in some pencil sketches created using Impressionist filter (from the result) and also so Xero Artworks filter set to lighten for some cleaning.

Re: pencil sketch

Fun project!

I used the blue channel as a starting point. Did an Artistic>Color Pencil filter. Charcoal texture.
