Here is my third try. I used Photoshop CS6, Perfect Photo Suite 8, and Akvis Sketch. part of the card is a photo from www.printsofchrist.com. And yes, I did get permission to use the photo before I used it.

Each of my entries uses Akvis Sketch and Photoshop, and may also use Dynamic Auto-Painter and Topaz Clean.

Nice entries ;)

imamormon… what presets did you start out with in Sketch to get the results for the Girl and the Bird images?
Did you start with one of the Akvis default preset's and then make your own adjustments?

sktcher11--sorry, I just changed out the girl sketch because I noticed it looked too much like the one by ADworshak on page 2 on this contest.

However, to answer your question: I tend to use a pretty high watercolor and charcoal setting with zero coloration and smudging. The thickness is also high with no midtones. And the min length starts at 3 or 4.

[edit] I'm reattaching the original girl sketch for the sake of the conversation with sktcher11:

Thanks for preset info…
What do you usually set the Max length # to?

Will experiment with these preset variations.. thank you.

I find max length doesn't often do much for me past a certain point--somewhere around 12 to 14. I guess it depends on the image.
