Pencil Sketch to Digital Drawing

The other day I sketched the following portrait in my sketchbook:

"Sketch" Cedar Park, 2019
Photo info: FUJIFILM X100T, 23mm, f/2.8, 1/125 sec, ISO1250
“Sketch” Cedar Park, 2019

It’s one of my daily sketches, in which I spend 10 minutes or so putting pencil or pen to paper. Occasionally I’ll take a sketch that I like and then make a digital version. In this case, I took the photo, dropped it into Adobe Illustrator and drew the lines (no tracing for me!), then added the colors. I’m pleased at how it turned out. ☺

To see all the sketches I’ve been working on, you can check out the Flickr album “My Sketching Journey”, or my Instagram account barron.sketches which I created just for posting sketches, watercolors, and stationery items.

By the way, I’ve been enjoying using the Ain Black eraser (and I erase A LOT!). It works so well!
