Thumbs down Re: Creative Portraits: Flower Girl

Hi palms1

I really like this effect ! Kind of little color strokes that achieve a sketch (the first pic) could you please give more details on how you did it please ?

Regards

Re: Creative Portraits: Flower Girl

Hi Mohammed

certainly here are the steps i took

basic sketch ( duplicate original > desaturate > duplicate > invert > change blend mode to colour dodge > Gaussian blur ( i use around the 4.0 ) > merge down which leaves the sketch layer and original ) best thing i have done so far is to make this into a action

On the sketch layer go to filter > cut out i used settings 8, 0, 2, change blend mode to Luminosity

then just fiddle around i used a white brush to get rid of the bits i didnt want (can be done on either layer, but i think the sketch one is easiest )

also altered the colour to taste

hope this makes sense to you dont hesitate to ask any questions
and i hope you meant the first one, if not let me know


Palms

Really like this technique.

I have tried and come close, but haven't hit on it yet. Tried a combination of smoothing with Lucis Art and then layered with the plastic wrap filter. But as I say, not yet. Might come closer with PS which I don't use.

Re: Creative Portraits: Flower Girl

Steve, l like your second rendition, great painting effect.

Palms, I vote for your second renditions as well, I would've asked you how you did it, but I suspect the it's AHB and a sketch (??)
