Charcoal and Chalk Drawing: Effect Parameters

Charcoal and Chalk Drawing

AKVIS Charcoal transforms your photos into charcoal and chalk drawings.

Charcoal is one of the most popular materials for drawing. It lets you create a preliminary sketch as well as a finished work of art. It combines the advantages of different materials. Using the sharpened charcoal you can make thin clear lines, but if you put it on the edge you'll get a wide loose stroke.

Chalk, in its traditional white color, is used to highlight bright areas of the image, add accents, and give the picture volume.

Using both tools you can create professional-looking expressive black and white images. It's also possible to play with colors to achieve outstanding artistic effects, such as sanguine or others.
