What You'll Need
To recreate the design above, you will need the following resources: 1. Let's Get Started
First, open the photo that you want to work with. To open your photo, go to File > Open, choose your photo, and click Open. Now, before we get started, just check a couple of things:
  1. Your photo should be in RGB Color mode, 8 Bits/Channel. To check this, go to Image > Mode.
  2. For best results, your photo size should be 2000–3000 px wide/high. To check this, go to Image > Image Size.
  3. Your photo should be the Background layer. If it is not, go to Layer > New > Background from Layer
    2. How to Create the Background
Step 1
In this section, we are going to create the background. Go to Layer > New Fill Layer > Solid Color to create a new solid color fill layer, name it Background color, and choose the color 
#e5e5e5
 as shown below:
Step 2
Now go to File > Place Embedded, select the texture from the first texture link, and click Place. Then, set the Width and Height of the texture to 101.73% and name this layer Background Texture.
Step 3
Go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Black & White to create a new black & white adjustment layer and name it BT_Desaturate.
Step 4
Now press Control-Alt-G on your keyboard to create a clipping mask. Then, select the Background Texture layer and change the Opacity of this layer to 20%.
3. How to Create the Sketch
Step 1
In this section, we are going to create the sketch. Select the Background layer and press Control-J on your keyboard to duplicate this layer. Then, go to Image > Adjustments > Shadows/Highlights and set the Shadows Amount to 10% and Highlights Amount to 10%.
Step 2
Now name this layer Base and press Control-J on your keyboard to duplicate this layer. Then, drag this layer to the top of the layers in the Layers panel.
Step 3
Go to Filter > Filter Gallery > Artistic > Cutout and set the Number of Levels to 8, Edge Simplicity to 10 and Edge Fidelity to 1.
Step 4
Now press Control-Shift-U on your keyboard to desaturate this layer. Then, go to Filter > Stylize > Find Edges.
Step 5
Change the Blending Mode of this layer to Multiply and set the Opacity to 20%. Then, name this layer Rough_Sketch_1.
Step 6
Select the Base layer and press Control-J on your keyboard to duplicate this layer. Then, drag this layer just below the Rough_Sketch_1 layer in the Layers panel.
Step 7
Now go to Filter > Filter Gallery > Artistic > Cutout and set the Number of Levels to 8, Edge Simplicity to 2, and Edge Fidelity to 1.
Step 8
Now press Control-Shift-U on your keyboard to desaturate this layer. Then, go to Filter > Stylize > Find Edges.
Step 9

Step 11
Change the Opacity of this layer group to 80%.
Step 12
Select the Base layer and press Control-J on your keyboard to duplicate this layer. Then, drag this layer just above the Rough Sketch layer group in the Layers panel.
Step 13
Now go to Filter > Filter Gallery > Sketch > Graphic Pen and set the Stroke Length to 15, Light/Dark Balance to 10, and Stroke Direction to Right Diagonal.
Step 14
Change the Blending Mode of this layer to Multiply and set the Opacity to 10%. Then, name this layer Shading_1.
Step 15
Now select the Base layer and press Control-J on your keyboard to duplicate this layer. Then, drag this layer just below the Shading_1 layer in the Layers panel.
Step 16
Now go to Filter > Filter Gallery > Sketch > Charcoal and set the Charcoal Thickness to 1, Detail to 5, and Light/Dark Balance to 10.
Step 17

Step 20
Change the Blending Mode of this layer to Multiply and set the Opacity to 60%. Then, name this layer Main Sketch.
4. How to Create the Foreground Texture
Step 1
In this section, we are going to create the foreground texture. Go to File > Place Embedded, select the texture from the second texture link, and click Place. Then, set the Width and Height of the texture to 235% and name this layer Foreground Texture.
Step 2
Now Right-click on this layer and choose Edit Contents. In the new file that will show up, go to Image > Auto Tone. Then, press Control-Shift-U on your keyboard to desaturate this layer.
Step 3
Press Control-S on your keyboard to save the changes you have made and close this file.
