We propose an efficient method that lets you create realistic color drawings and B&W sketches, imitate the technique of graphite and color pencil, and even generate the charcoal, pastel, and watercolor effects.

Getting a similar result with the standard tools would require expertise in image editing and extensive manipulation with layers, masks, brushes and applying filters. AKVIS Sketch 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. You may play with the settings and enjoy the results! The software 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 make the hatching denser or finer and change the pitch angle of strokes. The extremely helpful Timeline feature allows you get variations of your drawing without adjusting the settings. Watch the process and choose between the snapshots. 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.

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.
