So, here’s the rundown. First, upload your picture to Picnik. Then crop it close, you don’t want a whole lot of background in your image. Next look under the “create” tab for “effects”. Under “effects” scroll down a bit & you’ll find “pencil sketch”.
Move the “radius” slider all the way to the right & fiddle with the “strength” until you get a some nice definite lines to trace, for me that was 69%.
Print your image out, layer a blank piece of paper on top of it & tape both to a window. Using a sharp pencil lightly trace around your image, you can also capture where the shading of the photo is by lightly covering that area with your pencil & then smudging it with your finger. For me it helped to periodically take the paper down so I could see how it was turning out & then tape it back up & adjust as needed. That’s it! So are any of you going to try this?? What would you do a “sketch” of?
