Welcome to EarlK Design!


The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.

How to Create a Pencil Sketch from a Photo

Recently I posted a layout page to the Jessica Sprague Challenge Gallery. I used a couple of photos of Albert Einstein that I converted to look like pencil sketches. My page looked like this.


Several people asked how I created the sketches. The technique I used is very easy to use and is done in just a few steps. I used Photoshop CS4; but, I believe it can be done also in Photoshop Elements.

Some of my previous videos have been a little long, about 40 minutes. I try to pack in a lot of additional information that I think you might find useful as I go along. However, maybe many of you do not have the time to watch a 40 minute video. So, I have made the video of how to do this technique only about 6 minutes. Then, I created a couple of additional short, about 5 minutes, videos that contain some additional ideas, tricks, etc. This way, if all you are interested in is the basic technique, then just watch the first video. If you want a little more, watch the additional videos.

Instead of using the images of Albert to show you how the sketching is done, I have used another photo. This one.


Which changes to this.


I show you how to do this in the following video.

You will need to enter the Password in order to see the movies. Use the following password to enter the videos.

The Password is:  pencilsketch

In the second video, I show you a how to go from the original image to a colored pencil sketch.



Create a Pencil Sketch - Part Two from Earl Kreins on Vimeo.


In the third video, I use a portrait as the original image and convert it to a pencil sketch.



Pencil Sketch Part 3 from Earl Kreins on Vimeo.


There was going to be a Part Four video, but I decided that this was enough for you to get started with your own pencil sketches. So, even though the Part Three video says Continued in Part Four, there is no Part Four video. Do not go looking for it. It isn't here.


I hope you enjoyed seeing how this is done. It really is easy and quick and gives great results.

If you are interested in seeing how I did some pen and ink sketches before; in this blog, scroll down to

Other Days with Earl, Episode 10, October 18, 2010, Pen and Ink Sketch.


That is all for now. Enjoy life!



Earl
