I'm tripping out, man. by BlackScarletLove I'm tripping out, man. by BlackScarletLove
Trying a new cartoony style! Wanted to strengthen my digital drawing skills to add to my photo-manipulation skills. =D

I might do a rollover, but people seem to have more fun with the funky transition than they do looking at the image I spent so long on, so I might not. :XD:

boy, this took so many hours, probably 8 hours, and the first 4 were spent completely unproductively, trying to figure out how to do it. I wanted to do this technique for a long time but didn't know how to go about it, so that undefined point between A and B was hell, since I had no idea if anything I was doing was actually getting anywhere because it sure seemed like it wasn't. but finally it did lol.
The first thing I did was nuked the skin with gaussian blur, then painted it back in. I originally wanted to have no pores whatsoever to get a cartoon feel. Then I experimented with the cutout filter and such to see if I could get a cel-shaded effect, but that turned out to be a failure. So at that point I began using my tablet and I created two new layers overtop, one where I painted white for highlights, and another where I set it to overlay or soft light and painted black for shadows. That was the basic process there, just drawing my own highlights and shadows with the pen. Took a while to get it to look okay. Then I applied a colour tint, and practicing drawing digital hair (had a beard too that I opted out of) I felt like I was finally getting somewhere. I totally redrew the eyes from scratch. Finally, I wanted some pores in select places to give it a grounding in reality, but I didn't want to simply show the original layer below, like you might do with skin retouching, because that's too ordinary and realistic looking for this style.
I wanted highly illustrated pores. So I duplicated my original layer, and converted it to black and white over top of everything. Then I used the poster edges filter with medium edge thickness, full intensity and full posterization. i messed around with the black and white points, then set the layer on luminosity at 15% and masked in the areas I wanted.
:) I guess that's pretty much it.

I'm glad you like it! I was very happy to finally have figured out how to do it!
