Pencil Sketch Drawing Effect Photoshop Tutorial

In today’s Adobe Photoshop video tutorial we’re going to create a pencil sketch effect that quickly converts a photograph into a realistic drawing. The result features a mix of rough sketch lines and shading, along with a subtle paper texture which makes the effect much more believable. Choose between a traditional graphic pencil appearance, or toggle off the Black and White adjustment layer to produce more of a coloured pencil crayon look.
