Drawing Based on Scanned Textures

Students had to find a textured, organic object and were required to scan the object at a high resolution. After scanning, the students used Adobe Photoshop to remove dust and to create a uniform background of black to contrast the scanned object. After completing the digital manipulation, the students used pencil (or charcoal) to draw the organic object as realistically as possible at a 1:1 ratio on 9″ x 12″ paper. 

The scanned images and their drawn representations are shown below.
