Please help,

I am trying to turn a colour photo into a b & w pencil sketch, but I am struggling to get detail on the finished image.  I want to apply this to nature photos, and right now I am trying it out on a kingfisher photo. 

I honesty do not have enough knowledge about Affinity to know where I am going wrong. 

If you can help, then many thanks, my fingers are crossed.

It would help to know as many details about what you have tried as you can provide.

Also, it looks like you have posted about this in several different topics. In general, it is better to keep everything in one topic, & if you are going to include any files to provide them in the native Affinity format (like as an afphoto file).
