sketch and tinting comparisons

Here is a pencil/charcoal sketch I made from a photo. I think the rough textures in the stone work and rusted gears make for a good sketch subject.



Here is a "hand tinted" version that took a while... making separate layers for each of the various tints and shades I worked with...



Here is a Photoshop gradient version of the black and white which I did after I did the hand tint one above. This one took about 6 clicks of the mouse. Hardly made the hand tint process worth it in this case.

Doesn't that just drive you nuts? Work like mad on something then you try to replicate it with software and in 15 min or less you do! Love all 3 by the way!!

All three are really lovely! I've just discovered digital manip and hadn't thought of trying it on a scanned drawing. I like working in pencil/charcoal and think that they were a great choice for this one, even without seeing the unretouched photo from which it came. Great job! You've inspired me to try a new direction. Thanks! I learn so much from my fellow WCers!

I'm assuming the original ie #1 was drawn and then scanned into the computer. In which case a well deserved accolade.

However, in comparing the two computer generated tints I definitely prefer the hand tinted version. The colouring looks far more natural and therefore far more pleasing.

Bobby,

The first one was simply an original photo made into a digital drawing in Photoshop using layers, filters and PS tools. No real art media was used.

Ron...THIS is the texture I was trying to explain in the barn thread. However, now that I look at it again, it may well be the *added* texture on the overall appearance of the piece that was impressing itself on my mind, rather than the brush used.

I don't think that the two tinted versions could possibly be interchanged. The hand tinted one is most definitely worth the time it took to produce. (Of course, had I not *seen* the hand tinted one, the the PS applied version would be gorgeous. ) I think I just figured out what my *personal* problem is with the gradient coloring. It's TOO predictable! AND it reminds me of those sheets of plastic we used to rub on the T.V. Screens *before* color television. (They looked great on the outdoor scenes of Gunsmoke...but made a kitchen scene look strange! )

Oh, now that I have THAT little factoid straightened out in my head...I can better enjoy the gradients.

Ron, this is a fabulous manipulation...and I surely do appreciate you sharing BOTH tinted versions with the forum.

QUESTION!! Could those gradients be applied on a separate layer and then re-touched...deepened in some areas, removed or lightened in others? Or possibly smudged or pushed so that they don't created a "predictable" demarcation over the entire image?
