In the last tutorial, we created a sketch from a photo in three simple steps. Typically, your sketch ended up quite light and atmospheric looking. Here is a continuation that will bring more darks and depths into your sketch. For your convenience, the last tutorial is quickly reviewed here. Hope you find this fun and useful. I've used a photo I found on a free image site for this demonstration. Have a great day!

Thanks Nathan - also saved. My last attempt looked so-so on the screen but when I printed it the sketched part of the image turned out blue (looked like carbon paper)although it looked greyscale on the screen. The black border lines were black so it is back to the drawing board for me.These are great tutorials.

Color printers have a color gamut (and each printer is different). One thing you can do is to flatten the layers and use the levels dialog to bump the darks up a little more before printing it out.

These tutorials are great! You should consider publishing them in some form or fashion. This is much more down to earth and far easier to understand than anything that Adobe provides!!
Thank You and please continue to submit them!
