Photo to Pencil Sketch

By skstarkiller
I've used this process several times in the past few weeks. I finally decided to make an action out of it. I've been pretty impressed with it. It will take a color photo and turn it into a pencil sketch.

Hey, are there any restrictions on using this action? I have a website I'm working on and this would be a perfect action to use to make parts of some of the graphics

This is great - much better than some others ive used. On some pics if i miss out the last couple of steps, flatten it, then 'up' the contrast it looks good too.
Thanks very much!
