Tutorial: AKVIS ArtWork

A Little Secret

 

The author of this tutorial is Véronique Talis, of Guadeloupe.

Véronique writes: "I love to draw in my spare time, but I don't have much talent. I've searched a long time for a program that would not only enable me to express myself, but also bring surprise and delight to my family. AKVIS ArtWork is just what I've been looking for. Now I can make Christmas presents for everyone: something that I can print and present to friends and family."

    Original Image Result

In this tutorial the AKVIS ArtWork plug-in was used with Adobe Photoshop CS3.

  • Step 1. Open an image in Adobe Photoshop.

    Original Image

    Make two copies of the original layer. Do this with the command Layers -> Duplicate Layers.

    Making Copies of the Layer
  • Step 2. Select the first layer copy. Start the AKVIS ArtWork plug-in (Filter -> AKVIS -> ArtWork). Choose Comics from the list of styles. Change the parameters to your liking.

    Comics Style Applied

    Press to start processing and to apply the result and close the plug-in.

  • Step 3. Now work on the second layer copy. Start АKVIS ArtWork again. This time choose Pen and Ink from the list of styles. Set the parameters as you wish or use the default settings. Process the image and apply the result.

    Pen and Ink Style Applied
  • Step 4. Set the blending mode for the second layer. Go to the Layers palette and choose Overlay from the drop-down list. Next add a layer with an inscription. Choose Text from the toolbar. Change the font, color, and position of the text as you wish.

    Blending Mode

    Merge all of the layers and save the result.
