Ferrari Sketch

12 Dec


Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

Tutorial: Blue LightingTV YouTube Channel

There has always been a bit of a battle in my mind if I like photography or illustration better. Photography can capture all the reality of a moment in crystal clarity. Illustration can strip out the unnecessary and highlight the important aspects of an image in a way that can be difficult in a photograph. So I find this Photoshop technique to be in many ways the best of both worlds.

The image started off as a photograph of Ferrari (a studio beauty shot) and working with Photoshop, the photo was turned into an illustration. The cool factor was how quick it was to turn the image into the final image (about 25 min). On the other hand it only worked if you started with a good photograph (good wide range of lighting, not too much details and a main subject that is easy to close crop). This is one of those effects that when they work, they work fantastic, if not, well…. try something else!
