Hire Sketch Artists

Sketch art refers to art created using pencil, charcoal, pastels, and paper. They are meant to accurately depict stories,situations,people, places and objects. Sketch artists work in different professional settings. They work in the legal field to recreate images of people and/or situations based on verbal records of witnesses. They may also work for the police to sketch portraits of suspected criminals for distribution to other police branches. Other fields that require the use of sketches include journalism and the entertainment industry. People may also have sketches made of themselves or their loved ones for personal use. Sketches may be made as a rough draft for designs that are later edited using photo editing software. Some expert sketch artists use sketching alone to deliver the final piece of art. If you require a sketch artist for hire, you can connect with them on some of the top freelance marketplaces, like Guru, to fulfill your sketching requirements.

What Do Sketch Artists Do?

Sketch art is a freehand technique used for preparing sketches as per client requirements. Sketch artists are proficient in drawing and illustrating and they can prepare high-quality accurate representations of the image description. Mostly, sketch artists use pencil and graphite sticks of varying hardness to create shading, sharp strokes and depth in the sketch. They may also use colored pencils to prepare colored sketches for the client. After the sketch is complete, these artists spray the drawing with lacquer spray to prevent smudging of the graphite particles in the sketch. Sketch artists who draw sketches for personal projects have a reference photograph of the person, place, or situation. People who work in the forensic departments rely only on the witness’s memory and they are extremely skilled at understanding verbal descriptions of people and situations.
