In contrast to standard filters that offer an approximate sketch, It 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 two photo to sketch conversion styles: 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 a few sliders. At first, you can process the picture 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.
You can personalize your pencil sketch by inserting a signature, a greeting, a logo, or a watermark; add a rough texture surface to your image, as if it had been drawn on canvas, corrugated paper, brick wall, etc. You can also add a frame to your drawing to create a real 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 to one style for a website, an Instagram account, or an advertisement booklet. Experts apply Sketch to demonstrate the features of the architectural styles. Authors create illustrations for their books with this software.
AKVIS Sketch is available as an independent standalone program and as a plugin to a photo editor. The plugin version is compatible with AliveColors, Adobe Photoshop, Corel PaintShop Pro, etc.
Note: Try all the features of the software during the free 10-day evaluation period. During the trial period, you can try all options and choose the license that best fits your needs.
