Re: how to get rid of circles in sketch

Here is what I have done (very quickly so not perfect)

1 dupe
2 Shadow highlight
3 Palms sketch action (faded 50%) set blend mode to multiply
4 Added Channel mixer AL set to mono (adjusted channels to taste)
5 New blank layer filled with white added mask
6 Using a brush of my own making set to 50-60% opacity painted on the mask with black.
7 New blank layer set to overlay mode, painted with black to darken areas and white to lighten. (Same as dodge & Burn)
8 Added a paper texture layer
9 Added a gradient map AL
10 Use USM to sharpen brush strokes on the masked layer.

This is the nearest you'll get to a tut for the methods I've used for this.
Using different brushes on the mask will give very different results, as will different settings to the channel mixer AL.
