Sketching as a form of human expression has been around for a long time. In fact, drawings or paintings—which were preceded by sketches—were once the only mediums through which human beings could capture their surroundings. And back then, sketching was certainly not the final product.
But we’re living in the 21st century, in a digital age where the sky’s the limit and sketching is no longer an activity—it’s an aesthetic effect, one which we’ve grown pretty fond of. So for our first Weekly Art Project, make sketching phase two of the artistic process by using PicsArt to turn your photos into sketches.
Follow along with our tutorial to learn how to convert a photo into a sketch, or create your own technique. What happens when a sketch becomes the final product of the creative process? Submit your edits to show us.
