Nice sketch software

I came across this interesting website that do instant sketches.

Does anyone know of the software or plugin that does this type of sketch?
Its probably worth adding to my software collection.

Re: Nice sketch software

Google photoshop tutorials sketch. I don't know of any software, but if you have Photoshop, GIMP, or another image editing program, there are many tutorials. I'm sure there are actions available, but you probably want to do it manually, so you can apply different settings, depending on the size and detail of your photo.

Not sure about that type of sketch, many programs would do sketches (AKVIS, little ink sketcher, redfield sketcher, impressionist) to name a few apart from what could be done with a combination of standard photoshop filters. What exactly that cite is using is difficult to say, I would think it is something proprietary.

Re: Nice sketch software

What program do you use? Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Gimp, Paint Shop Pro?
It's very easy to make your own sketch, no need to get an external program to do that. Just let us know what program you use and we'll very likely be able to help you out.

Re: Nice sketch software

I'm using photoshop, I have tried the color dodge, blur/median style but not happy with the results i'm getting for a portrait, it looks a bit too fake

Re: Nice sketch software

What you can do after you're done with the sketch part, is duplicate the layer, select the smudge tool, change its blending mode to darken, and go over the portrait here and there to darken some spots. It makes a big difference. You can also change the blending mode of the smudge tool to lighten.
