Self-Expression: Sketch In A Minute

 

The author of this tutorial is Valentina Aynagos.

Often on the street, in a cafe, or at a train station one will often see people with a distinctive style. Sometimes a special style of dress is not simply a fad, but an expression of individuality or a sign of belonging to a particular subculture. Nevertheless, imagination can not only be shown through appearance, but also through creativity. In the following tutorial a photo of anime girls was tranformed into an original color drawing in less than a minute. All that is needed is a little imagination and AKVIS Sketch.

    Original Image Result: Anime Girls

  • Step 1. Open the photo in AKVIS Sketch. Soon afterward the Preview Window will display the result based on the program's default settings (AKVIS Default Preset).

  • Step 3. To use a Gaussian Blur effect, click on the Background tab, choose Sketch & Blur mode from the drop-down menu, and the Drawing on Blur processing method.

    Use the blue pencil (Effect Area Tool) to mark areas in the image that will remain unchanged. Use the green pencil (Blur Area Tool) to indicate the area to be blurred.

  • Step 4. Process the image again by pressing the button. The sketch begins to be revealed. Processing can be stopped at any time by pressing on the button right to the Progress bar - this will prevent undesired details from being added to the image.
