The pencil sketch technique has always been a favorite of mine...so whenever I see a sketch tutorial, I need to try it I followed the tutorial and then did some dodge and burning and also some smudging. The original is one of my photos.
They have a very different look but both are fantastic, Pete! Each one seems to be the perfect choice for the picture you used. If I try to visualize the opposite approach on each picture I feel like they wouldn't look as good. Don't know if you can follow what I mean. Always love seeing your sketch work.
HUGE mistake with the comment above Tpgettys and PeteB......Love your Ruth Bader Ginsburg sketch, Tom......and your bugler, Pete!
Thank you Helen. I found that the while the steps to get to the basic B&W rendering were quick and easy, the subsequent steps of hand drawing/erasing are where the secret sauce is. It took some time, but it was well spent I think! I am quite happy with the results overall.
