Pencil Sketch

In this post from Marilyn Armstrong on her blog, Serendipity, the above pencil sketch was featured. I know Marilyn is an accomplished photographer, but I didn’t think she was also a sketch artist. So I asked her about the image and she told me about a program she uses on her laptop that converts photographs into pencil sketches.

Of course, I use my iPhone almost exclusively for my blog, so I went to the Apple App Store and searched for an app that works on the iPhone and can do something similar to what Marilyn’s app does on the laptop.

And I found something called “My Sketch” that let me turn this photo I took…

Pretty cool, huh?

I was also able to create this sketch below from the same photo…

Anyway, just thought I’d share this with you, my WordPress family.

And thanks, Marilyn, for the inspiration.

      Yes they are, and they can take a standard snapshot and make it look very artistic.

    Even the pace of AI remains the same, I’m afraid in the future we would have literally, computer artists. Actually Rutgers University did just that, I think it was published in arXiv.
