Markers Drawing from Photo
The new task I’ll show you how to represent a marker’s drawing, using a usual photo.
Open firstly the necessary photo in a new window: File – Open (ctrl+o)
Increase its contrast a little, applying next selection: Image – Adjustments – Curves (ctrl+m).
Apply the corresponding filter also: Filter – Artistic – Poster Edges.
Then mark out the background, using the Magic Wand Tool and Polygonal Lasso Tool to make it a little brighter: Image – Adjustments – Brightness/Contrast.
Move off the markings (ctrl+d) and select for this layer next command: Image – Adjustments – Threshold.
We’ve got too sharp lines, which is why we have to blur them out a little with Filter – Blur – Gaussian Blur.
Copy this layer: Layer – Duplicate Layer (ctrl+j) and move the copy under the basic layer containing the contours. Then process the layer with Filter – Artistic – Cutout.
Get back again to the upper layer and make one more copy of it (ctrl+j). Process the copy by applying turn by turn the next indicated filter: Filter – Distort – Polar Coordinates, Filter – Stylize – Wind and again Filter – Distort – Polar Coordinates.
Change the Blending Mode of the layer on Lighten and minimize this layer’s Opacity till 50%.
Merge down those two upper layers: Layer – Merge Down (ctrl+e) and change the Blending Mode of the layer on Multiply. Then merge down the rest of the layers (ctrl+e).
If that is necessary we may insert the picture in a frame, using the Crop Tool.
Then give to this picture the texture of the paper, opening it firstly in a new window (ctrl+o).
Mark it out with Rectangular Marquee Tool, make a copy of it: Edit – Copy (ctrl+c) and get back to the processed picture. There we should insert the texture on a new layer: Edit – Paste (ctrl+v). Make the necessary corrections on its size, using the indicated command: Edit – Free Transform (ctrl+t) and change the layer’s Blending Mode on Hard Light, for example.
The picture we have is too bright, which is why we need to correct the layer, making use of the next command: Image – Adjustments – Levels (ctrl+l).
And the next selection: Image – Adjustments – Hue/Saturation (ctrl+u).
Continue with the layer containing the picture and erase the black patches, selecting Image – Adjustments – Selective Color.
Merge down all the layers (ctrl+e) and make the final corrections on the brightness and on the colors, using Curves and Hue/Saturation.
Choose the Crop Tool and Rectangular Tool to insert the picture in the frame:
