PhotoInkArt is another form of digital artwork that I have been playing with. It is again based on my photography and uses Photoshop to turn images into line drawings by picking out the edges in the picture.
Picking out the required level of detail can sometimes be tricky and can require the merging of multiple layers, one to pick up the obvious lines and another at a stronger level to pick out the fainter lines (if only the second were used then the obvious lines would be very thick and dominate the picture).
Like the SketchArt this technique is well suited to architectural type subjects with lots of line detail. It can also be used with a watercolour wash effect to create a watercolour pen and ink type piece of artwork. This is accomplished by making the line layer transparent and using a blur effect on the original image underneath.
If this is an effect that interests you then please have a look at my PhotoInkArt Gallery where I shall be adding works as I create them.
Below shows the sequence of changing a photograph into a piece of PhotoInkArt.
Like the PhotoSketchArt these will soon be available to order as small prints in size 7″ x 5″ and large limited edition prints in 18″ x 12″ size, watch out for further details.
I have also been working on a variation of PhotoInkArt but details of that will appear in a future post.
