This series of images is about me working on a technique. I began to make sketches from the fotos I shot as a drawing exercise. I used primarily graphite and a small sketch book with medium weight paper. I then scanned those sketches. I would compare them to the original photo as an overlay in Photoshop. Basically to see how close I got to the original foto.
While I was playing with the transparency I saw the bleed of the color of the original foto. It was pretty cool seeing the sketches with color. Why not paint the sketches in Photoshop.
Hence the creations you see before you. I did about 30 of these but these are my favorite. Some of these creations ended up being used in other pieces of work. So you might see the same image used in a few pieces.
If you like any of these you can order a print of the creations here. Please feel free to comment, share and enjoy these Foto Dono Creations.
