Photography rendered as a line drawing

A couple of years ago, I made a set of note cards that had images of homes in my neighborhood in Decatur, Ga. USA.

The homes were all designed and built back at the turn of the last century (circa 1910) by Leila Ross Wilburn, a graduate of Agnes Scott College and resident of Decatur. She was one of very few women working in architecture at that time.

Recently, I was commissioned to create the above rendering in the same style, by the owners of another home on my street. This treatment is done with a series of Photoshop “filters”, tonal and contrast controls and a great deal of layered adjustments, with precise and specific blending of those layers.  The first image (above) is the latest version, and below are three others from the original set.
