Just a manikin

Man in Green, sketch

Man in Green, sketch done by Ulla Hennig

I must admit, I did this sketch in the office, waiting for a telephone call. I then scanned it and colored it with the brush-tool in photoshop. I’ve never used that tool before, but had read a lot about the ways other digital artists use it to color their scans.

Sketching persons is also something which is new to me, and another trip out of my comfort zone. The second step really was fun – trying out different colors and brushes. It gave me an impression of what you can do if you combine “traditional” and digital art.

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.

    I hope you will have many more sketching opportunities whilst waiting for a telephone call! I find sketching people great fun and now you’ve made the first move out of your comfort zone, maybe this is just the first of many more to come! Intriguing what you can achieve with the digital colouring. I’d never have known you didn’t paint this by hand if you hadn’t mentioned it!

    I don’t take the time to comment every day, but I do read all of your posts and I must say, you are really coming a long way and quickly too! I’m really excited for you.
