Digital Sketches (photo manipulation)

January 2011, I was assigned by my employer, Emagineers (M) Sdn Bhd to make a digital sketches for Institut Terjemahan & Buku Malaysia (ITBM). A total of 11 sketches of Chairmans & Managing Directors. What I did was to manipulate the photos supplied by ITBM and make it look like sketches using Adobe Photoshop CS3. It took me almost a week working days to finish the job.

Note: All pictures in this post are belongs to ITBM and cannot be used or reproduced in any manner whatsoever.
