It will be nice when I can reliably produce images i’m happy with. Anyhow, it’s fun to play with, if a little time-consuming.
I’m not a portrait type (that’s why I’m working on these!), but the machine has tools (particularly Photoshop’s “Liquefy”) which allows you to make little adjustments to a picture which would otherwise take lots of uncomfortable erasing and redrawing. I think mine work best when I’m quick and loose, but this medium encourages a lot of tinkering. Certainly don’t want to do photographic likenesses, though it would be cool to have that ability. A couple of these are drawn from photographs, but not traced!
This last one was from a manipulated pencil drawing, while the others were sketched completely on the screen.
