Free Photoshop Sketch Actions

I love drawing in Photoshop, but it’s time-consuming work because you’ll keep repeating the drawing and erasing to get the best result possible. 

I used to do wall illustrations for a gym, it literally took me five weeks to finish the whole project and the most time-consuming part was sketching at the beginning. Once it’s done, editing and coloring were quite easy. 

Well, don’t freak out! If you’re not doing a sticky required illustration project, you don’t have to spend hours drawing because Photoshop does the job for you! 

What’s the deal? Download the file below for free and turn your photos into line drawings. 

Now that you have the atn file downloaded, it’s time for actions!

      Hi Des, I’ve just tried the link myself and it works for me. The download should open a new browser window or tab and contain a zip file.

    I tried a couple of times again. Same result the window appears and then disappears. I’m using Firefox but I don’t think that should make a difference. I even disabled my internet security, no difference.

    I just found that the download is so quick that the window and the download appears for about a 1/4 sec. It downloads auto and does not give you any options where to save it. Now that’s sorted I will give it a try. Thanks for the info.
