Silverpoint Action - My House

Post by minniev » Wed May 09, 2018 11:29 pm

Ya'll have me experimenting with this action stuff. This one, called Silverpoint Sketch, is still not working quite right. You can't see the target layer when you draw the focus area out, so I'm drawing on a blank layer, using another copy of the image as a rough reference point. Then the selection path won't turn off. I finally figured out a way to force that part to work, but haven't solved the other yet. I am sure I"m doing several things wrong so if any of you guys have conquered this type of tool, share your hints.

I like your sketch area but the vignette/border not so much....I know nothing of the program so can't help there but would suggest using a variety of the custom brushes from Ps at differing opacities to paint away most of the border.....

You mean the edges? The edges are always my problem, I can't figure out how to control it. I'll try painting it out some.

Yes minniev if that's what you call that tan color all around the sketched image....all personal but I find it too in your face and distracting from the sketch which I like.......

lots of potential, I like what it did to the tree bark also, it might work well with forest scenes too.

Minnie, I agree with Frank; the tan border is too strong for me. I wonder what it would look like without the border but with the sketching. A wood scratch rather than a wood cut? Love your sylvan retreat. Thoreau of the South? Matt

I'm the same with the edges, crop in and you have it! S-
