Comics and comic book illustrations are very popular among artists that create these works from scratch using drawing techniques. Among these techniques are ink drawing, sketches and comics effects like halftone for example. But what if we are not professional artists and still want to obtain this comic book effect from one of our photos? That can be easily obtained in Photoshop using Photoshop actions.
My new comics action turns any image into a comic book illustration in just a few seconds. The ATN file includes 3 comics action versions: two color effect actions and one black and white effect action. The effect is obtained using Photoshop filters, black ink outlines, and color and contrast adjustment layers.
I hope you will enjoy my new Photoshop action that can be downloaded for free. Just remember that all my actions are free for personal non commercial use, attribution required. The redistribution on other websites is NOT allowed!
In one of my tutorials I have created a simple yet effective comics text effect that can beeasily used in comic book illustrations or any other cartoon graphics. And I have decided to make a quick Photoshop action so that you ca obtain a comic text effect in just a few seconds. The action has two versions, one with only one color that you can easily change.
And the other comic action generates a two color effect one for the text and one for the background. All the layer styles remain intact so you can easily edit this comic book text in terms of color, outline size and so on. You can make lots of variations starting from this point.
The comics action works ok for text layers and also for rasterized shapes. So if you have a custom shape and you want to add it a comic cartoon effect, make sure you rasterize it first. The action is free for personal non commercial use only; the redistribution is not allowed.

This halftone Photoshop action can be used to create comics and comic book illustrations using your own drawings and sketches. To obtain the comic book effect, this action adds a halftone pattern over your image using the Halftone Pattern Filter. It comes with two versions, round halftone and square halftone pattern.
The layers are not rasterized so you can easily adjust the opacity of the halftone and even change its color. Free for personal non-commercial use; do not redistribute and if you use it link back to us!
This action pack will allow you to create pixel art from vector shape/graphics or raster image cutout. It works best for graphics, image cutout turning them into pixel perfect effects. The result contains all the layer styles intact so you can easily change the number of colors, the black outline color, etc.
The pack also contains a set of pixel brushes that you can use to customize even more the result.
This pixel creator is great for making sprites, pixel avatar, 8 bit images, comics, comic book effects and so on. Spriting has never been easier.
Download the sketch Photoshop action that turns your photo into a realistic pencil drawing. The sketch action comes with four versions: a colored sketch, a black and white sketch, a unicolored sketch and a vintage sketch effect. The good news is that all the layer styles remain intact so you can easily adjust all the settings; because the photos are so different in terms of light, contrast, colors you might have to modify the result.
You can play with all the adjustment layers so you can obtain many sketch effects, colored comic book effects and so on. The action is free for personal non commercial use.

IMPORTANT: inside the action you will find an PAT file that contains two patterns; you have to load the PAT file in Photoshop before you play the action!
