The purpose of this blog was to see how applying Photoshop - Filters - Artistic to a simple digital sketch of Megalong Valley can result in a diverse range of outputs, some good, some less so. The sketch itself was created on a Wacom tablet using the Chalk 'brush'.

I love this version above, created using Photoshop's Artistic - Sponge filter. Quite a revelation.

I was also pleasantly surprised with the above image created via the Artistic - Film Grain filter.

What about the Artistic - Poster Edges filter of the original 'chalked' sketch? I don't mind it at all.

I was undecided about the version above created in Artistic - Watercolour though I usually love what it does to a piece of digital artwork.

I was less impressed with the above Artistic - Sumi filter version as it 'destroys' too much of the original image, including the afternoon light.

Hmm. Can't say that the Artistic - Colour Pencil filter really grabs me, though it could be good for other types of graphics.
