I wonder how can I transform my freeze frame of dead 'bad character' into something like in this picture (I mean this black outline):

I wanted to make transition where camera zooms on character a little bit, then it is freeze framed, character changes into something like in the image above, and then camera zooms out and now, image of my character is part of a wanted poster.

The easy fast and dirty way? You could make a freeze frame of the frame you want to look sketched, and then use a filter on it like the Cartoon effect.

The artsy cool way to do it? Draw a line version of it yourself and then make a cool sketch transition effect from the video to the still frame kind of like in the Sherklock Holmes titles. There's a tutorial on how to do that bit too here -
