How can I create woodcut illustration in Illustrator and/or Photoshop?


Question

Are these illustrations done manually by hand or in Illustrator? Is there a easier way to reproduce these kind of illustrations?

I think those are like comic book drawings, whether on paper or on Illustrator both cases they are manually drawn.

However there's an easy way to create something close to that on Photoshop using filters, here's how:

Open the desired image in Photoshop:

From Filter menu go to Filter Gallery --> Sketch --> Graphic Pen:

Play with the numbers (Stroke Length - Light/Dark Balance - Stroke Direction) until you get the best result:

Hope you find that useful :)
