Turn your photograph into a sketch

Turn your photograph into a sketchAs we all know that Adobe Photoshop is a huge great multipurpose software, that leads the graphical and designing industry as the software incorporates thousands of thousands of thousands effects.

Usually, I said that Photoshop has amazingly range of functions and software features which can be use in the creative ways to create even razor-sharp images or eye-catching graphical illustrations. Further more.. Photoshop is definitely designed to be a very user friendly to us.

Here I'll give you some simple simple simple steps to create a hand drawn sketch or drawing for a photo model like I did in Line Art or something.

Step 1

Create a new 1280 pixels 1024 pixels of document with 72 dpi resolution in the RBG mode. You guys can use any picture you like. Mine is a gorgeous green Ferrari.

Step 2

Crop away your car from the background with whatever you like for the tool (don't forget to rename it Ferrari cropped). After that.. Duplicate the Layer Ferrari cropped (shortcut : Ctrl + J), also rename it Ferrari 1 or something. Hide the visibility of your original Ferrari by clicking the Eye Thumbnail of its layer.

Step 3

Back to your Ferrari 1 layer. Now go to the menu Image > Adjustments > Desaturate. Your image will be look like this.

Step 4

Make another copy of it and name it Ferrari 2 something something... lol. Go straight to the menu Image > Adjustments > Invert, remember the Shortcut key of this action? It is Ctrl + I.

Step 6

And now change the Blending Mode of your Ferrari 2 layer to Color Dodge.
