Hey, Gang. Going to literally phone it in this week due to being on vacation and that vacation landing in Big Sur, CA (a land with less internet connectivity that parts of Indonesia and almost as little access to electricity). On the not phoning it in front, check out Deke’s Techniques this week that features advice for how to trace a photo in Adobe Sketch, and a follow up movie that shows how he added my facial features to the sketch. See you when we get home from our lovely California adventure!
Have you ever used an app like Lensa? Feed it a bunch of selfies and it generates a handful of AI portraits. Which are flattering, to be sure, but they're hardly impeccable. In fact, they can be riddled with flaws. All of which you can fix using the copious retouching tools in Photoshop.
