Black and white sketch effect

In this tutorial you will learn how to create a black and white sketch effect using the threshold adjustment and various filters. The black and white sketch gives the effect of a hand drawn picture using black and white paint. I have used a free stock image of a woman, a full list of free stock images can be found here. This effect works best if you use a self portrait image.

Black and white sketch effect

Step 1

Open an image in Photoshop.

Step 2

Select Image > Adjustments > Threshold and adjust the threshold levels to your liking and click ok. I have set my level to 109.

Step 3

Add a diffuse filter by selecting Filter > Stylize > Diffuse and select the option Anisotropic and click ok.

Step 3

Now add a sharpening filter by selecting Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen edges.

You should now have a black and white sketch effect.
