Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Beyond the Colored Pencil, part of Photoshop for Designers: Filters (2015).
It has to be said that Colored Pencil is not my favorite filter. …It has quite a few limitations but if certain criteria are met you can get a …good result with it. And those criteria are: you want to be …working with an image that is on a white background so that you can isolate the subject. …Secondly, and you can see that I've done this here, you'll need a separate layer …for the paper. And you can then apply a filter to that …separate layer to give it some texture. And thirdly, and perhaps most …importantly, one application of the filter is not going to do it.…
You're going to get all strokes that are the same width and the same weight. …And that's not really going to work. So, you can see here, that I've applied …the filter three times to three separate layers. …Each of these layers has the Multiply Blend mode applied to them. …And then they are put in a Layer Group, which itself has the Multiply Blend mode applied. …And then that will then combine with the separate paper layer beneath. …
