Photoshop converts a Photo to a Pencil Sketch
Ladies and Gentlemen, we introduce you to Tim Shelbourne and welcome his Photoshop expertise to this issue of DTG! Welcome Tim, and thank you so much for sharing this tutorial... [Editor's Note: Folks, we regularly get two or more requests from readers for any help using Photoshop to convert a photo to a sketch -- pencil, charcoal, conte, or other mediums. This is by far the very best tutorial we've seen to date -- bar none! Tim Shelbourne writes... Ask any artist and they'll tell you that all the tubes of paint in the world cannot replace the simple pencil when it comes to artistic potential. The so-called "Sketch Filters" in Photoshop consistently yield very disappointing results; re-creating the quintessential sketch demands a little more inventiveness and an approach that mimics traditional techniques. Don't worry if your drawing abilities aren't up to snuff, all that's required here is the ability to scribble! (1) Open your original image in Photoshop.
