This Photoshop Action takes your unfinished images and creates highly detailed effects in the style of a drawing using charcoals. lines and shading can dramatically create a realistic effect using landscapes, portraits and pets.
All that is required is a single image to be loaded into Photoshop. once the action has been loaded into your action sets, Press play! The time it takes to create the effect will depend on the speed of your computer, but most images will take between 10-30 seconds.
for the best results use images that are at least 2000px on the shortest side. Images that are smaller than this or have lower resolution will produce results that replicate the pixels from the original photograph.
- Once the action finishes, if you want a darker or more gritty effect, duplicate the layer and set that duplicates blend mode to "multiply"
- Images with complete blackness will yield different results, but most black has been designated to look like the parts of paper that have not been drawn on yet,so it may be all white.
- use images with lower contrast, or adjust the darker images so that they have a little grey in the blackest parts.
Due to the nature of digital Downloads, refunds or exchanges are not an option,all sales are final. if you have a problem with the action working, contact me and i will help you troubleshoot.
above all, experiment with the effect and have fun! :)
