Covered Bridge Line Drawing


Open Photoshop
Go to File>New> (make sure doc is in inches)
and create a file that is 12wide x 9 height, the resolution at 150.

Copy a large image of a covered bridge and then ctrl-v (paste) the image into the file.

Copy the layer by duplicating the layer (Ctrl-J)

With the new layer selected you need to desaturate the image. To do this go
to Image > adjustments > desaturate

Duplicate this modified layer. You should now have a color background layer and 2
desaturated layers above.

Select the top layer and invert the image. To do this go to Image > Adjustments
and choose Invert

With the top layer still selected (the inverted

layer) choose Color Dodge from the layers
pallete drop down menu. (This will make most of
the image turn white)

We now need to apply a Gaussian blur to the newly white layer to allow parts
of the layer underneath to show through. Select the top layer and choose Filter
> Blur > Gaussian Blur.

Move the slider up and down to find what level suits your picture. The setting for
this is often somewhere between 1 and 5 but will depend on how complex your
original image is.

To tidy up the image use the Dodge and Burn tools to clean up the image. The
Dodge tool will lighten the pencil marks, the burn tool darken them.

To make the brush (circle) larger press the right bracket, to make smaller press
left bracket. You can also adjust the exposure at the top.
