At first, open your desired image. Make a layer. You need to make a copy of background layer. Name it as sketch layer. Then, go to filter, sketch and stamp gradually. Zoom it well so that it suits your job. Balance the light or dark balance and smoothness as of your choice. Click OK. Select the original layer and lock it. Select eyedropper tool and select the sketch layer again. Now, select the brush tool and choose the desired size of the brush. Select the portion that you want to select. Choose the layer to normal to multiply. Then, select the eraser tool and select the size of the eraser to your own choice. Create another layer naming layer 1. On that layer, click right button and select merge layer.
