Sketch Game/ Alitogata's photo

Postby Alitogata » Wed Aug 06, 2014 2:48 am

This is my photo. I took it during my visit to Papagiannakos Winery in Mesogea Attiki. This is the cellars of the winery.
I post two versions of the photograph. One smaller to see it here and a one in higher quality compressed for download.
Sketch paint and comment as you like. Happy sketching :)

Very nice. Your sketch shows why I'm not even going to try sketching from that photo: lots of details that must work right together, starting with perspective. I like ten-minute sketches, max, and that would take me an hour.

The only thing I spent time to,was to make the perspective... if you do the perspective then the rest are ( believe me) smudges.
Especially the bottles are curling lines and nothing else.

I just finished the water pump. I'm waiting the paint to dry ( smoking a cigarette) and then I will take a photo to post here.

Smoking. I used to think while I cleaned and filled and lit my pipe. That's the one bad thing about giving up smoking, that your thinking time is reduced.

You get extra gloss when you photographs sketches wet.

But then you spend more time on the image manipulation program to make photograph's colors come close to the original, something that I have to do sometimes anyway, unless I photograph paintings in day light. Conclusion: I have to buy a scanner. :)

Wow! I agree with Andre .... I'm not even going to try to sketch from this picture. Yours is beautifully done!

The wall and the tiles on the floor are more have more reality for me in the sketch than in the photograph.
