Chapter 10. Tricks and Techniques > Drawings and Paintings from Photos

Drawings and Paintings from Photos

It’s fun and satisfying to create drawings and paintings from photos. The easiest way to create a digital painting in Paint Shop Pro is to use the Brush Strokes effect (Effects > Art Media Effects > Brush Strokes). There are plenty of ways of getting drawings and paintings by hand, too.

Digital Drawings

You can, of course, create digital drawings purely by hand. With Paint Shop Pro’s Paint Brush, you can adjust the brush settings to get a brush that simulates a pencil, chalk, pastels, or charcoal. And it’s easy to make a tracing from a photo, too, especially if you have a graphics tablet and stylus. Just add a new layer above your photo, fill the new layer with white, lower the white layer’s Opacity so you can see the photo beneath, and trace away.
