  • What do you think of my first sketch?

    I love this site! I wish I could pick a style and stick with it. I have always thought that this picture of my wife had potential. This is my rendition. What do you think? I used the basic sketch outline of tamroon.

    This is the link to the full size photo

    hi kliph and welcome to RP.

    there's a wide variety of sketch types. yours is more of a softer definition. i tend to prefer a higher contrast, more definition, but that's just a preference thing. i do like that yours tends to look like a soft graphite with a bit of hand rubbing/smearing, which often has more realism to it. so, that part of it is great.

      Kliph, I agree with the idea that the picture has potential.. I like your sketch also.. and like Craig said the softness adds something.. mine is a bit harsh for such a pretty lady..

      My thinking goes something like this.. with all sketch, painting, or retouch projects I always do the same basics before doing any thing else.. clean up the photo by doing levels, curves, color corrections and repairing any cosmetic things (Like in this case, softening the heavy dark lines in the face), then crop and sharpen.. After all this is done and everything looks good.. then I start playing.... painting, sketching etc.. like the samples I am posting

        Going for a very soft pencil look.

          ICE4/GREYC/Fine Threshold blended with results from Impressionist Geo Chaotic Chrome. Added custom paper at the end. Some clean up steps.
