The effect of colored pencil in Photoshop. In this lesson, you will learn how to turn any image into a color pencil drawing using Photoshop.
The real problem in creating a drawing with a colored pencil from any image is to create as believable a drawing as possible. For those of you who are just starting to learn Photoshop, you will need a little experience in this program to complete this lesson.
Open any image you would like to use as the source image. In this lesson, we use the image shown in the screenshot below:
First, duplicate the original motorcycle layer (CTRL + J).
Being on a duplicate layer using a tool Fast selection (Quick Selection Tool), highlight the image of the motorcycle. Once you have created the selection, apply an inversion to the selected image.
Next, go Filter – Blur – Blur by Gauss(Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur). Apply the following settings, which are shown in the screenshot below:
Next, go Picture – Correction – Discolor(Image> Adjustment> Desaturate (CTRL + SHIFT + U).
Translator’s Note: before you bleach, remember to cancel the active selection.
Change the blending mode for the current layer to Replacing dark (Darken).
Now, duplicate the current layer (which, by the way, is already a duplicate of the layer) and we will continue to work with this layer.
Let’s go Image – Inversion (Image> Invert (CTRL + I).
Change the blending mode for the current layer to Lightening basics (Color Dodge). You can see that we’ve almost created a color pencil drawing using Photoshop.
Next, go Filter– Other – Minimum(Filter> Other> Minimum). Apply the settings shown in the screenshot below.
Now you can see that the effect of the color pencil has become more distinct.
Now, duplicate the original motorcycle layer. Next, we will work with this duplicate layer. Move this duplicate layer to the top so that it is placed on top of all other layers.
Change the blending mode for the current duplicate layer to Chromaticity (Color).
We finished the lesson.
