Little Marie: A Pencil Sketch from a Photo


The author of this tutorial is Jean Piron.

When drawing a real portrait, the first step is to create a rough pencil sketch which gets filled in with more and more detail. The author of the example does the opposite - firstly, he turns the photo into a colored pencil drawing and then simplifies it even more using AKVIS Draw.
