[Paris street scene (sketch)]


Kids playing street soccer in the 3eme arrondisment.

Nice technical trick on this one: it's actually built out of a sketch executed in plain old ballpoint (or Rolling Writer or some such), then scanned into Adobe Photoshop, sharpened, and run through edge detection. Pretty cool effect, no?

If you want to try this, don't skip the sharpening step or it gets to be a bit of a mess.
