this was included in my ap drawing portfolio. i was doing a lot of paper-making at the time and incorporating little bits of things into my paper. i figured if i could do it with leaves and stuff, why not a photo. the boy in the picture is my cousin, patrick.

voila: patty smith, the "paper-boy"

the photo is completely inside a piece of hand-made paper, and the back is solid hand-made paper. the drawn additions on top are done in charcoal pencil.

(this is my first contest entry ever, so i hope you guys like it!!)

That's amazing, I love the technique!  I've never seen something like that before, and the result is fantastic!  Great work!

you did a fantastic job and this is such a great idea! the picture looks really really good. i've always thought that making your own paper would be fun, but after this i'll definitely have to try that just so i can try it with a photo, as well.

I absolutely love this! I love how bits of the actual photo show through, and how you've drawn details on the top. It's an amazing look! I'd love to give this a try, though my drawing skills are pretty poor. But, I have a feeling that if I chose the right photo, it wouldn't matter Wink
