CLICK ON PIC FOR SHARPER IMAGE
This pencil rendering was copied from Shorpy’s which is a historical photography website.
The computer is a great resource to draw from. It gives one the ability to down-size a photograph at will, which helps one to concentrate on the major values and shapes early in the procedure and not get mired in the detail. As the need arises one can than enlarge the photo.
No fancy-shmancey art materials were used for this rendering. This was drawn on 8.5” x 11” piece of bond paper with Ticonderoga pencils (2, HB, F) sharpened to a razor point.
