AKVIS Sketch converts photos into pencil sketches. It makes your pictures look like real drawings. Now you do not need to handle a pencil to feel like an artist. All you need to create your original work of art is good taste and AKVIS Sketch!
We propose an efficient method that lets you create realistic color drawings and B&W sketches, imitate the technique of graphite and color pencil, and even generate the charcoal, pastel, and watercolor effects.
In contrast to standard filters that offer an approximate sketch, AKVIS Sketch comes very close to the hand-drawn works of a human artist. It lets you create an awesome pencil drawing from any photograph with a mouse click!
The software offers these photo to sketch conversion styles: Classic, Artistic, and Maestro, - each with a series of presets and with the possibility to create a wide variety of pencil drawings for every taste. Each style has its own benefits. Play with the settings and enjoy the results!
AKVIS Sketch has a neat interface to process your images instantly. At first, you can turn the photo into a drawing with the default settings and then touch up the image by adding color or trying different techniques - from pencil to charcoal or watercolor. You can adjust all the settings: make the hatching denser or finer, change the pitch angle of strokes, choose the pencil color, etc.
The extremely helpful Timeline feature allows you to get semi-processed sketches and variations of your drawing. Watch the process and choose between the snapshots. Pin the result and continue to play. Then you can compare versions of the drawing and choose the best one… or two.
The program offers a list of ready-to-use presets which make it easier to work with the software and save you time. You can create your own presets with your favorite combinations of the photo to drawing parameters.
Using the software you can also add some unique background effects to your picture! Create a combination of a sketch and a photo, mixing drawings with real life; imitate motion or add a "time machine effect" by swirling the background. Put an accent to certain parts of the image by blurring the rest of it in an artistic way.
The Batch Processing support lets you automatically convert a series of images. You can make comics or cartoons from your home videos in this way. For video processing, we also offer a special filter for After Effects and Premiere Pro - AKVIS Sketch Video.
