Turning photos into drawings.

Following some advice and help from a poster on pixalo.com forums, I had recently had some fun turning some shots taken earlier in the year into drawings or illustrations in photoshop.

Here are some examples that I have recently done.

And a Fly Agaric toadstool.

Information on how to do this is in the forum thread that I’ve linked to, and is very easy & fun to do.


I've been taking macro photography from 2004. I use both Canon film and digital cameras.
