This is what I came up with today in an effort to make a photo seem more like an illustration. I Started with a canvas texture overlay and then coaxed a line drawing from the photo. After that I masked in the original photo at the face for more presence and to bring the eye there. Added a light leak texture overlay and used a blend mode of soft light to limit it to appear in just the dark parts of the hair and shoulder. I believe there’s also a brush strokes texture appearing subtly on the dress. I tend to process my photos to appear more like are and illustration rather than straight photos due to my background as an artist and illustrator. What results is a more painterly look. Hope you enjoy it.
