Illustrations from Photos - Gallery

Updated on February 29, 2016

A gallery of converted photos

If you have a digital camera and don't have the time to draw, but still want to create illustrations from your pictures, use Photoshop or a similar program to do it. If you don't know how to go about it, please take a look at my earlier tutorials, here and here.

If you don't want to do even that, just enjoy my pictures.

This is fun, and it's how I pass time when I am bored. Never fails to perk me up and delight the rest of the family. They make great desktop wallpapers too!

Remember, the trick is not to use any effect or filter by itself; combine two effects or more to create unique illustrations!

Hope you have fun with this. Cheers!

      The secret is to get the family involved, hehe. Get them hooked to this, or just do their pictures. I sometimes make this something I do with the kids: 'Let's surprise Mom by turning her into a pretty picture.

      Thank you, Dorsi, shall look forward to your artwork hub. :)

      Combining Illustrator and Photoshop- sounds scary! My family will never see me again! When I was learning Illustrator I was having a blast and I made some really cool artwork. I'll have to make a hub with some of what I did- that would be fun!

      Wow these are fantastic! I love them! So you take pictures and then use Photoshop with them to do this?

      I've been working with illustrator for the last couple years but I think I'm going to have to try photoshop now after reading your hub!

      Kenny,

      I want to try to adapt this photo usage into a woodburning. I have not tried it but I think it could work out great. I will let you know what I come up with, maybe even write a hub about it....Very interesting.

      Good to hear from you sweetie...So much hub contesting going on it is boring...well to me. I spotted it was your eldest son and you and your youngest...where is that pretty wife's pic?  Or wouldn't she let you  ?  I know the feeling.  I want to try this too...just am too lazy lately...moving mom and all and visiting everyday.  Still not working tho since my last illness but am well and back to being sassy and chatty as you can see.  Have a wonderful week-end and check out my new soup recipe...I was thinking of you when I wrote it...you know... my gentle Man...G-Ma :o) hugs & kisses

      One thing I know, Kenny, is when you publish a hub, I look forward to relaxing and being inspired. Its balancing for me to be busy with our business and also keep in touch with my creative side, even if its to enjoy the works of others. :)

      No Abhinaya, they are both my sons, and the photos were taken recently. I am the grey chap only. Hope you have great fun fiddling with Photoshop. And thank you!

      Frank, all your efforts are appreciated. 

      I don't judge your poetry, only love it. 

      Please continue to do your magic, for the sake of all your fans. 

      Thank you for everything.

      I must admit my last effort at poetry turned you off, so that you had a convulsion on the spot. I was getting very concerned and decided no more poetry.

      Thanks for coming back and relieving my conscience.
