Tutorial: How To Turn a Photo Into a Line drawing

Our current Munich Artists 30 day challenge takes a creative commons photo and asks artists to create an art piece using digital techniques or illustration.  If you want to make an illustration out of the photo that we’ve provided, you can use this workshop below.   To do the workshop, you must have photoshop and some knowledge of the software program. Luckily the instructor shows you exactly who to work with the image to make it a line drawing.

If you are not an expert, this process will take you much longer than 8 minutes.  Give yourself 30 to 60 minutes to complete this task. If you want to use today’s photograph, here is a link to the media file.  Once you finished, you are welcome to share your artwork in our challenge group (open to everyone to share their artwork using our challenge images and themes.)

Note: If you do not see the sketch filters, it is because you are either not in RGB or you have not allowing yourself to see all the filters.  you must go into your preferences and change the plugins by clicking that you want to see all filters. (I had this problem.)

Here is my version of the line drawing:
