Sketches 2

Inspired by Michal, I tried this sketch effect once again. Previously I discovered it may look better if the picture is first turned invert (negative) before adding the effect, and then turned back positive again. What do you think? Which one is better? I'm not going to tell you which one is treated with invert. I just like to hear some comment first. Just try not to let the different amount of contrast bother you, and concentrate on line structure.

  1. The one on the right looks better although it's a bit too bright around the sandals and could use some light reduction ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. OK, thanks for assessment Selurus ๐Ÿ™‚ I also do not reveal my own opiinion yet, to avoid affecting on comments :DMy wife's daughter Laura likes the one on the left more. I changed the links on pictures so that you can now open the full size pictures directly.

    And I suppose it makes it better for you ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Very nice, some where between the two is my choice,too grey on the first and too much contrast on the second, i tried something similar but with PicSay ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Thanks for comment Wertti ๐Ÿ™‚ I used PicSay as well. But what about the line structure? I did asked you to ignore the contrast issues ๐Ÿ˜‰

    :yes: for me too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Laura's boyfriend Tino chose the left one, and so did I. I guess it has something to do with the display I have :DFinal result is: 3 for left, 1 in the middle, and 3 for right.On the left one I did what explained above: I turned it invert (negative) before adding sketch effect, and then I turned it back to positive. But surely it also needs some contrast added, which I already did for the right one. It is just damn difficult to get it right on small hand held device :DBut the ultimate reason why I like the left one more is the line structure. Fo me sketching means that someone uses dark charcoal or pencil, and therefore it should loo like the single lines are black. This is the case for the picture on left, where inverted treatment used. Picture on right looks like some white pastel used, or white scratched out with some sharp tool.

  8. The picture on the right I like the transition from black to white. I love vivid colors…. :DLeft image is a very gray for me … :yuck:

    Oh I should read better, in that case, the right one for sure ๐Ÿ™‚ :up:

    I see now reading above that I was incorrect in my assumption. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. I like them both, and on any given day I may switch my preference, but for today I prefer the image on the right and am wondering if this is the one you edited as indicated.

  12. Yes, the one on left could be improved more by adding some contrast. But that is the one where I used this inverted treatment. For me it still is better ๐Ÿ˜€ Here's one more where this method has been used:
