  • Looking for a detailed tutorial on creating handdrawn effect

    Hiya,
    I'm looking for a very detailed tutorial on how to make a photo look like it's handdrawn and painted. I haven't seen very detailed tutorials on this other than basic stuff like "test out some filters like sketch or notepaper in Photoshop", that's pretty much common sense, and I know it's much more complicated than that. Not really looking to do much facial editing, I'm more interested in making it look sketched/painted.

    This is what I mean by handdrawn effect (images too big so I'm going to link them):

    Before:

    Thanks.

    the blur brush in photoshop might be able to achieve a "painted" effect.

Do a google search for turning photos into vector art and you should find plenty of results for both Illustrator and Photoshop. Good luck.

    I don't think the OP was looking for a vector solution as the sample posted look very much like Photoshop brushed and painted pieces. But if anyone is looking to get started in Illustrator and in vector portraits, that tutorial is a handy guide.

    I understand where they get this though, and I thought the same thing till college. High school art teachers tell us this.

    Just another newb who wants an Easy Button answer and doesn't particularly care about the particulars. Granted they did say that they were only tracing to learn but because the OP is new, it stands to reason they get the standard copyright lecture.

    Klan, we take the profession seriously here. The stuff on copyright was really a standard bit of info we give all newbs and dabblers, as well as students of design who drop in once in a while.

So if I use my own photo and want to learn to manipulate it, I'm violating copyright?? Lol.
    If you're going to act like an a-hole and think anything Asian violates copyrights (I have no idea why you are worried about the copyrights of the photo of an Asian girl, unless you happen to be that girl in the image), take your racist remarks somewhere else.
    Chill out and lose the attitude. You obviously missed this:

    You're railing against a great amount of experience here, members who are just trying to help you do things the right way. There's no racism in this thread, I can guarantee that from what I know of the posting members. So take what advice you want and leave the rest, but attacking other members will not be tolerated on this forum.

    Hand over your man card and leave the premise at once.

    You are to make no eye contact with anyone on your way out and you are barred from this establishment for life.

    Good day to you!

    ?

    So, just to appease Mr. Godwin, did I mention that I was born in the same country once ruled by Hitler?

    There, that feels better.

    Are you talking to me? Are you accusing me of making racist remarks?

    Around here it's known as "copyright infringement".
