Finished another Paint Shop Pro tutorial -- a Sketch Effect

I think I was somewhat inspired by watching some of the amazing movie "Sin City" last night. (smile)

No, this isn't exactly what I had in mind when I was watching said movie, but while very quickly fooling around, I suddenly realized just how easy it was to turn this:
Sketch version 1 (small) -- original

Into these:
Sketch version 4 (small)   Sketch version 5 (small)

I liked the effect enough to dash off yet another a quick tutorial, which I originally wrote for version 9, but just translated to version 8. I have a hunch that most of my LJ friends aren't really into using PSP for the most part, so I'll skip linking these two. (smile)

Anyway, the whole process of converting tutorials fascinates me. (I should ask other tutorial writers exactly how they proceed. Maybe there's a much easier way than I use!)

I still have three other tutorials I'd like to finish up that are more than halfway finished. Plus a pile of others that I've started at one point or another!

I'd love to know why I'm so bad about that -- starting a tutorial, but not finishing it.

For that matter, over the years I've had a journal here at LJ, I've written countless entries that I never finished! It's really annoying.

On that note, I need to post a non-PSP entry!
