A Sketch Effect Creates Personalized Artwork From Photos


A contrast in realism! You see elements of Heine's caricature in this Pencil vs. Camera

Fitting? Yes…Creative? Absolutely!!… I just had share the artistic works of Ben Heine
a Belgian painter, illustrator, portraitist, caricaturist and photographer from Brussels.

This particular image is part of his “Pencil vs. Camera” series that combines photos with
pencil drawings by superimposing the sketch onto the photo.  Ben will take his own photos
and consider the image as a battle between the drawing and the photograph.

“The great thing is that the photo and drawing are 2 different ways of expression but they go
well together and they definitely have the same purpose: share an idea, an emotion, a
concept or a message
.” Ben Heine
