Hey, I was just going through your art and noticed your recent work including buildings/photographs - would you able to quickly go through your processes? Thanks in advance, keep up the great work!
I use photos from trips. This one is from when I visited England.
throw it into photoshop, and go to the filters section. There’s other countour filters but I use the one under filter>stylize>trace contour (because it’s a uniform line weight and I like the look)
after this, use the slider and pick the contours that best show off the picture’s focal points and all. This filter can bring out a lot of details but sometimes you just need outlines and all.
after that, go to select>color range, and use the dropdown menu to select the highlights (ie get rid of the white on the layer)
then lock the layer, and fill it with the line color of your choosing.
finally, make a layer under it and do the coloring shenanigans. Since I use these for mainly warm ups or quick things, I just use a low threshold paint bucket, but if you wanted to be neater I guess you could use the inverting-magic wand deal.
after some cleaning up I get something looking like this:
I hope this helped!
