I didn’t come up with theidea of Photoshopping a photo to match a drawing that’s perhaps a bit imperfect, but I think it’s a lot of fun, so couldn’t resist making one of my own to add to the pile. I’ve tracked down the guy who I think first made these, Jamie DMJ, here (see his creations at the bottom of this post). Also I’m not really criticizing the artists who make the drawings. Perspective, proportion, and anatomy are very tricky, and they are to be commended for not simply tracing an image, or even an outline. All artists are beginners at some point, and even the most famous artists make some suprising mistakes. I often go back and rework pieces because I discover my own flaws.
I’ll update this by adding new additions on the top, if and when I make them.
I originally saw this kind of idea in MAD Magazine when I was a kid. It showed photos of what kids would get if they got what they drew they wanted for Xmas. This sort of thing has always appealed to my sense of humor. Just looked it up online and bound it.
