    Hopefully someone can help me on this. I have an idea I am going to use for an album cover for a band. There is a certain "feel" that I want to the photograph that is very hard to discribe. I would like it to seem almost like it is drawn.

    Than, the other day I was looking through a couple of magazines and I spotted a Camel cigarette ad for their "Roaring 2000's" promotion. The "feel" of the drawings were perfect. I was debeating with my friends if they were drawings or photographs.

    Hopefully someone has seen these ads, and if so
    my questions I would appreciate help with are these:

    A) How do I get that "feel"?

    B) Could those ads have been photographs that were "filtered" somehow?

    I obviously have no experience with photography at all, but I felt that a message board like this would be a great place to ask for assistance.

    Thank you in advance,
    Brian M

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    I don't remember the ad but I would go with a B&W film with alot of grain, then use a strong light sorce from one side. But that would be just a guess.

    I haven't seen the ad. Did it look like a watercolor, cartoon, etc.?

    There are ways to simulate oil paintings, water colors and other painting and drawing styles in Photoshop.

    If I could see the ad, I might be able to point you in the right direction.
