I show you how to convert this to a black ink on white paper sketch.
Then, I show you how to add some color back into the image so that it looks like a watercolor wash over the pen and ink sketch.
Using another image, I show you how you can get a variety of different looks by using blending modes. Here is the original image.
And, here are some of the variations.
As part of this process, you actually get a very nice white on black scratchboard effect. Here is what I did with that idea on another image.
If you are interested in seeing how to do these things, you can download a .pdf file from box dot com by clicking here.
I hope that you do download the file and see what you can do with your images. It really is a lot of fun to see what you can do with just one image. You might even want to try this on a photo that you took but it turned out really quite out of focus and is very blurry. Try it, you might like it!
If you have any ideas of what you might like me to show you, leave a comment and I will see what I can do.
That's all for now.
Enjoy life and have fun.
