How to Draw Images of Photographs W/ DrawCast the Free IPhone App

Are you bad at drawing? Do you wish you knew how to draw more realistically? Well, I have found a great way for you take images of photographs and turn them into digital art. I have been using the free iPhone appDrawCast to:

  • Make contour sketches from images of photographs
  • Learn how to draw better by studying form and value
  • Export the photo to be digitally edited in one of these iPhone apps
  • Save money on art supplies and be a “greener” artist
  • Work with layers on an app, similar to Gimp

Images of Photographs to make art

With DrawCast, we can use images of photographs to make old techniques new. I used to take an art lesson where students would trace their hand under a piece of plastic with wet erase markers. They would trace the edges onto a piece of paper as a contour drawing. Another trick is this lesson plan to convert 3D models to 2D line drawings. Now with the freeDrawCast, you can shoot or download a photo and trace the edges on the iPad / iPhone appinstead. No more lost marker caps!  (Click here to read the rest of the article)
