Make a Sketch From a Photo: Artistic Style

The Artistic style in AKVIS Sketch is designed to create expressive drawings that look like the handmade work of a real artist.

In this style, it is easy to create both a quick sketch and a girlefully drawn and shaded pencil drawing. The main advantage of this style is the ability to play with hatching and to vary the number of shadings and shadows to get natural tonal transitions. This style requires a good photograph. The best results can be achieved if the original photo was taken in the right light and has good contrast.

In the Sketch tab you can adjust the parameters for the photo-to-sketch conversion.

The parameters in the Artistic style are grouped in three tabs: Strokes, Edges, and Effects.


Strokes tab (hatching parameters):


Edges tab (parameters that affect how edges are drawn):

Hint: We recommend to adjust edges while the hatching is off. To do this, set Hatching Density to zero (in the Strokes tab).


Effects tab:

The parameters on this tab become active by clicking the Apply Effects check-box.
