  • Illustration Photograph question

    Ok this is a silly question, but I figured my smart peeps here would know and not be too judgmental on my lack of knowledge base

    When I am looking for inspiration or just work to admire, I will see these great designs that are look almost photoshopped. They are usually hand drawn typography or illustrations.

    Are these just cleaned off before added to a portfolio? If not, wow, I have a long, long, long way to go. I erase quite a bit and I never see any imperfections when designers photograph their sketches.

    I added a photo for reference in what I am talking about. It's pen and ink, but you see the same thing with pencil shadings.

    Your posted sample doesn't look photoshopped to me. It's just skill that comes with practice, practice and more practice.
    Sketching not only helps you work out good ideas, it helps you get past the bad ones.

      Shooooot. I have a long way to go Thanks Pan. P.S. every time I see your icon I crave toast.

    That example is gorgeous.

    I'm sure with enough practice you should be able to get there. Most designers cannot and are not required to do this kind of work. Even if we all drool over it
    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

    That's by Martin schmetzer and it's usually all pencil sketched. Usually people draw it up, take it PS to just adjust the contrast and some threshold maybe but that's about it. The reason why it's so clean is because it's done twice. A rough for the sketch and then traced for the original piece. He could've possibly used a ruler for the stems of some letters to keep it straight but the rest is prolly all just plain hand draw.
