AKVIS Sketch converts photos into pencil sketches creating realistic drawings. Now you don’t need to handle a pencil to feel like an artist. Taste and AKVIS Sketch are all you need to create your original artwork!
Unlike standard filters that offer a rough sketch, it comes very close to the hand-drawn works of a human artist. It allows you to create an impressive pencil drawing of any photograph with a click of the mouse!
The software offers two styles of photo-to-sketch conversion: classic and artistic, which help to create a wide variety of pencil drawings. Each style has its own benefits. Play with the settings and enjoy the results!
AKVIS Sketch has a neat interface with some sliders. At first, you can process the image with the default settings, and then touch up the image by adding color or trying different techniques, from pencil to charcoal to watercolor. You can adjust all the settings: make the hatching denser or finer, change the angle of inclination of the strokes, choose the color of the pencil, etc.
The extremely useful timeline feature allows you to get semi-processed sketches and variations of your drawing. Watch the process and choose from snapshots. Anchor the result and keep playing. You can then compare versions of the drawing and choose the best one … or two.
The program offers a list of ready-to-use presets that make working with the software easier and save you time. You can create your own presets with your favorite combinations from the photo to draw parameters.
Using the software you can also add some unique background effects to your image! Create a combination of a sketch and a photo, mixing drawings with real life; mimic movement or add a “time machine effect” by rotating the background. Emphasize certain parts of the image by blurring the rest in an artistic way.
You can personalize your pencil sketch by inserting a signature, salutation, logo, or watermark; add a rough textured surface to your image, as if it was drawn on canvas, corrugated paper, brick wall, etc. You can also add a frame to your drawing to create a true work of art.
You can make a pencil portrait as a gift for your relatives and friends, print your sketch on a T-shirt, decorate a room with a watercolor drawing or a poster. Designers use the program to quickly bring images into style for a website, Instagram account, or advertising brochure. Experts apply Sketch to demonstrate the characteristics of architectural styles. Authors create illustrations for their books with this software.
AKVIS Sketch is available as a standalone standalone program and as a supplement to a photo editor. The plugin version is compatible with AliveColors, Adobe Photoshop, Corel PaintShop Pro, etc.
