Convert photos into pencil sketches and watercolors

Nick Mead

AKVIS Sketch is a plugin for conversion of photos into pencil sketches and watercolor 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.

Our efficient method allows creating realistic color and B&W drawings that imitate the technique of graphite and color pencil, charcoal and watercolor painting.

In contrast to the similar standard filters (like the built-in filters in Photoshop or PSP) that offer an approximate sketch, AKVIS Sketch provides a convincing result; it comes very close to hand-drawn works of a human artist. Getting a similar result with the standard tools would require expertise in image editing and extensive manipulation with layers, masks, brushes and applying filters.

AKVIS Sketch has a neat interface with a few sliders. At first you can process the image with the default settings and then touch up the photo adding color, or trying different techniques - from pencil to charcoal or watercolor. You can make the hatching denser or finer and change the pitch angle of strokes.

"Good but not enough trial time"

I have downloaded the trial version and it is v good but 10 days is not enough to value it properly, i mean you can't sit in front of your computer for hours on end. I love the B&W sketch, it makes you feel like an artist. Unfortunately it is over priced for something you would only use occasionaly. Still v good though.

  • V Good results and easy to master
  • Over priced
