Shop Magic

The week just past has seen me working full time at bookshop. During quiet moments I took to staring out of the shop window and quickly sketching passers by. The relationships between the hat, collar and glasses lines, which all worked together to frame peoples cold little faces, were most interesting. Above is one page of male pedestrian heads.

Being quite pleased with one particular sketch, I decided to wrench it off the page and see what effect giving it some colour would have. I wasn't too impressed with the results, no added impact or novelty, so feeling defeated I did the usual "lets see what difference photoshop texture effects may have on it".

GEMS!! I don't want to blow my own trumpet but I never been so impressed with the texturiser tool! The far left one is my favourite.

Note: It is a brave man who ventures out wearing a bright yellow woolly hat, a brave man.
