Welcome to EarlK Design!

The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.

Other Days with Earl Episode 10: Pen and Ink Sketch

I have noticed recently that some people have been interested in modifying their photos so that they look like a pen and ink sketch. I have used a method that I like and maybe you might be interested in seeing how I do it. I do not know where I first saw it done this way; but, it is one of the ways that I like to use. I  used a photo of mine that I took of Chimney Rock at Ghost Ranch, Abiquiu, New Mexico. I took the photo in the Summer 2006. Here is the photo.

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.
