I was just asked to create a hand drawn looking style for some still graphics for a video project. Any ideas on where to start? The sketch filters in Photoshop seem pretty sloppy.
I was thinking of taking a still image, bring into Photoshop and trace the outlines but this seems super tedious.
Anyone have any techniques to share?
you are going to struggle to fake drawing skills if you can't draw.
Q: Any ideas on where to start?
A: Pencil and a sheet of paper.
Do they not teach how to draw in design school these days?
pay someone who can "draw"?
1. Print out still image
2. Get tracing paper and lay over print out
What's the image? Perhaps if it's not too complex, not being strong in the drawing department might be a good thing!
Could use a projector too.
A little clarity - These traced images would be of things from a cable company like installer vans, close up of coax cable, cable modems, etc. And the desired style that's being asked for is "contemporary and modern". Their output would be as accents to a video piece where text and other graphics would be on screen as well. These drawn elements would not be the main element on screen. Thanks all for the suggestions!
it will still be easy enough - like mentioned above - print out photos - use tracing paper or copy paper on a light table (or window) quickly trace with a sharpie - take photos of them or scan them in
if you have a bunch to do only do one or two to see if the client likes the technique
