Please view this in high resolution to see the effect clearly.

Post processing involved Picassa photo storage software, free download, available from Uncle Google.

The process:

1. Crop photo.

2. Pencil sketch available in Picassa.

3. Worked with tones, shadows, highlights lever.

4. Added saturation because pencil software render it b/w only.


My Goal for using this technique was to highlight the veins and lines in the cabbage patch.

Original photo is in SBS as per contest rules.
