  • Tutorial: Pencil Sketch (classic effect)

    I just saw this posted on usenet, got me to trying different things. Kind of fun:

    Open Image

    Duplicate Background layer

    Convert to Grayscale
    * Image > Adjustments > Desaturate -or-
    * Image > Adjustments > Channel Mixer (set to Monochrome)

    Duplicate BW layer

    Invert Duplicate Layer (Ctrl + I)

    Set Duplciate Layer mode to Dodge - should go white

    Experiment with one of the following:
    * Gaussian Blur
    * Motion Blur
    * Noise > Dust and Scratches

    Optional: Copy Background again and move to the top of the layer stack. Experiment with blend modes.

    (thanks to lmulli)


    I tried other filters besides these. Unpredictable, but like I said, fun

    Tutorial: Sketch, OhThatGirl2001 method
    by OhThatGirl2001
    I have been toying with taking a portrait and turning it into a realistic pencil like sketch. I have tried the technique with smart blur and find edges, poster edge etc., but I'm still not thrilled with the result. I found a nice tutorial using another method I thought I would share with you:

    Tutorial 06: Pencil sketch
    by DannyRaphael
    In retrospect this probably should have been the FIRST of the basic skills series because it is such a frequently used photo-art technique. In addition it is among the few that can be converted to a Photoshop action that doesn't render the original image into something that looks like a three-year-old...

    Try It: Soft Sketch
    by Cheryl H
    Before things got pruned in the big move, I'd printed out tons of how-to's from the site. I found a palette shot that wasn't attached to any directions and decided to see how much of it I could figure out for fun. I think I got most of it, but I did make a few changes where I coudln't guess right....
