Steve:

A+ on the writeup! The Art History Brush has always has seemed to be a tool with so much potential. Your subtle touch proves it.

Something to try when you're feeling wild and crazy: Create a new layer and fill it with white and a blank layer on top of it. Turn down the opacity of the Art History Brush brush very low (10%-15% or so) and keep the radius fairly small (5-15 px) and paint in some strokes on the blank layer. Then create a new layer on top of that one and set the layer Blend Mode to Multiply and paint some more. You'll get kind of a watercolor-like effect from the overlapping strokes. Keeping things on separate layers gives you flexibility in the end

Anyway, glad to see you're on a roll.

Question: Are you running Windows by chance?

I did this in an older version of corel painter, fractal painter4. Used some artists clone brushes. Took surprisingly little time. (I quite like the unfinished look!) Its a great program.

Very painterly effect. Painter's clone brushes are very powerful.

For the benefit of those who don't have Painter, its "Cloning" brushes work conceptually like Photoshop's Art History Brush, drawing color from the equivalent of a snapshot and applying it to a new layer according to the brush settings selected. Big difference: Painter runs circles around Photoship in this regard. The brush options and controls are plentiful and you don't get all the weirdness stroke directions like you do with the PS Art History Brush.

Nicely done, jakita...

Lightbulb Pencil Sketch Action

I'm working out some pencil sketching actions, and this is what I've got so far ......
Comments welcome.
When it's all set up, I'll post it here, OK?

Have fun,

Roland

(action added - Do a good, full-range, grayscale first. Execute in sequence. Layers left open to play around with blending, opacity etc...
Have lotsa fun! - Roland)
