Timeline: Stop the moment!
The author of this tutorial is Irina Vesnina (Russia).
Would you like to get several variants of your resulting image with just a single mouse click? In the latest versions of Sketch it’s possible to use the Timeline feature to create a list of intermediate shots which represent different stages of image processing - from a semi-processed drawing to a practically finished work, from a quick rough sketch to a realistic high-detail painting. Using the same parameters, you can get a variety of art styles to choose from!
Note: The Timeline is available for the advanced types of the licenses (Home Deluxe and Business).
Step 1. Open the image you want to turn into a sketch drawing: it can be a portrait, landscape, still life or any other image you like.
Step 2. The Timeline is displayed at the bottom of the main window. The number of the shots you’ll get can vary from 1 to 20. By default, there will be 10 intermediate images. If you want to get more or fewer shots, change this parameter in the program’s Preferences.
Step 3. Using the preview window, choose a suitable preset or adjust the parameters to your liking.
