Maximilian Posted December 12, 2015 Share Posted December 12, 2015 Hello! I've spent a good amount of this year adapting/developing a number of techniques intended to turn a photo into a sketch, or into a painted portrait, or into something resembling a pencil/brush artwork. MJW and I have already discussed this topic some time ago in this thread, where I mentioned a method I used at the time (post #10) which is not the approach I'm using right now (I would say the techniques I'm presently using are somewhat simpler in general terms). I'm showing here only a few of the results I've come up with after a considerable time of experimentation, expecting to gather opinions as I'm not sure if they are good enough. On the one hand I feel they still need some work to make them look more professional, but on the other hand I feel attached to their rusticity or uncleanliness, to call it somehow. I hope a side-to-side showing of photo/sketch will be fitting for comparison purposes. Anyway, you'll tell me what you think. First two sketches with some subtle coloring preserved from the original photo (here's a larger version): Next two turned out rather cartoony, I think (click for a little larger version): The following couple of pieces resemble stipples to me, especially the second: And the final two: That's about all for now, although I do have more pieces to show along these lines. Feedback will be highly appreciated (I'd especially like to know if these works hold any artistic value) 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
