Portraits with the SimmTrace

I have not been blogging, I have been working...some work on artistic pursuits. I am finding the greatest thing about the SimmTrace is doing portraits. I have been studying up on chiaroscuro y sfumato techniques. This is Italian for light, dark and smoke. The examples I have included with this blog are not charcoal or sanguine sticks as they should be, but rather Crayola crayon and standard #2 pencil like kids use in school. I have to tell you, they look very like the my beautiful redheaded daughter, the subject of these drawings.

And yes, Crayola crayons are real art supplies!

WoW !! They are really good! I too like the limited color effect of the 'sanguine' and to use easily obtainable materials for this effect is superb. BTW I have been experimenting with other free software to use with SimmTrace,I have posted a short blog with links on It can be used without uninstalling your current setup. You keep the webcam opaque and make any reference photo transparent.
