Love your tutorial here but as a fellow photoshop lover, if you wanna make
the drawing have little pencil strokes, merge everything and copy the
background layer, go to filter – filter gallery – graphic pen and choose
the settings you feel looks good, then click ok and set that layer to
“darken” in the blending modes. play with the opacity until it looks right.
now your drawing has little drawing strokes, it looks even more
realistic!!! take care :)

Claudio carrelli says:

I tried to follow your method with PS CC, but when I apply the gaussian
blur filter, I do not see the image contour like in your video, but rather
a full grainy surface with the original image merged into it. The image I
am using is 9×7 inches with 300 PPI resolution
