Funky Colored Pencils

Balloons - Funky Colored Pencils

This AOP mimics colored pencils and works well with landscapes (best with less detailed photos), animals, flowers and some portraits.


Dry reveal does not run unless you create a mask. Use your mouse to bring out more detail. Natural borders are on by default (be careful that your main subject is not too close to the edge — add border space if necessary). Turn natural borders off for a slightly different effect.

There is only one color palette. For a quick black and white sketch, select "Adjust/Hue Saturation" from the DAP menu and move the saturation slider all the way to the left. However, the best black and white sketch results from converting a colored sketch in an external photo editor such as Gimp or Photoshop.

Here are two additional examples with natural borders. One has been converted to black and white in Photoshop.
