Double sketch effect action for Photoshop

Here it is another sketch action I made.
This action offers a “double” sketch effect, just like if you painted the sketch twice, once from left to right, and once from right to left.

    Thank you for sharing your work on-line. I like the double sketch action even better than the poster edges filter. Very creative! Thanks again and God Bless.

    Thanks! nice action! i like the sample above… but when tried your action it’s not the same like in your sample… your sample is more detailed and and you can see the stroke clearly, the action that i downloaded from you is nice but the scale of the stroke is too small… But anyway thanks!!! It will help from some rush effects… Thanks for sharing it. Jah bless!

    Same here…It’s kinda “freaky” to watch but its AWSOME!
    This one is an excellent for the artistic mode effect for some nostagic photos.
    Thanks for sharing this.
