Here we have a family photo from India. The author shows us how to create an original black-and-white sketch using a photo editor and plugins AKVIS Sketch and AKVIS ArtSuite (in the past - Frame Suite).
The author used Paint Shop Pro, but you can work with any photo editor compatible with AKVIS plugins.
Or, if you do not have a photo editor, you can use Sketch and ArtSuite in their standalone editions.
We get the following image:
You can play with the parameters and get the effect you wish.
Here is the result. and the button to apply the result and close the plugin window.
Here we have an amazing sketch.
Call ArtSuite from the main menu of the photo editor Effects -> Plug-in -> AKVIS -> ArtSuite.
In the fall-out menu we choose Frame -> Spray, Frame Color will be Black, Frame Width=21 px, Density=99 and Random Seed of your choice. We set this value to 4980.
Now our photo has an artistic look.
