Next, I repeated the process but set the layers to different states (Vivid Light, Screen, etc.), and continued deleting some parts of the layers on the top until I was happy with the result.

I then Google searched for some newspaper textures and applied them using the same method. At the end, I created a Normal layer on top, added the final details, and made some Level adjustments. And then I was all done (Fig.07 - 09).

And that's it! As you can see, the process is really simple but also gives the artist a lot of freedom to experiment. It is not a piece where you can visualise it from the start, but rather you start and then become more creative on the fly!

Very good. I'd like to know if you started from a photo of yours, a sketch or from scratch
