When drawing a real portrait, the first step is to create a rough pencil sketch which gets filled in with more and more detail. The author of the example does the opposite - firstly, he turns the photo into a colored pencil drawing and then simplifies it even more using AKVIS Draw.
Step 1. Choose a portrait photo.
Step 2. Start AKVIS Sketch and create a pencil drawing.
