Poker Face Etch a Sketch by pikajane Poker Face Etch a Sketch by pikajane
I'd say this took about 40 minutes to make.
A few months later, my brother accidentally erased it. Thanks, Morris.
Here's the process:

and here's some other lady gaga art I have done on the etch a sketch:

There are a lot of factors you have to take into account when photographing etch-a-sketch art. Some of my nicer photos as of late have been shot with an SLR camera, and it makes a big difference. If you don't have an SLR, though, I suggest taking the photos in natural sunlight, preferably when it's cloudy so you don't have glare. DO NOT use flash, and if you have the option on the camera, I'd suggest using macro focus (it's represented by a little flower icon. Macro focus is really nice because it takes really crisp shots, so the lines come out clearly.
Try to get as square a shot as possible without getting your shadow or reflection in the shot.
I take on average about 20 photos before I'm satisfied. When I choose which shot is the best quality, the only digital editing I do is usually just tweaking the brightness and contrast ever so slightly so that the image on the etch-a-sketch stands out.

This is an abridged version of my answer to this topic, but if you're really interested in getting high quality shots of your work, I can send you an entire spiel I wrote on it in your notes :) Happy etching!

Yes please. I am also wondering if you have any tips for etch-a-sketching. Its hard to find someone who can give good advice for etch-a-sketch art.

I sent you the info on the photographing in a very long note :)
When it comes to tips for etch-a-sketching, one thing that I will have to say that applies to all forms of art is to just keep practicing. Also, I love experimenting with new ideas :) It's always fun to see what has never been done before on an etch-a-sketch!
Is there any specific advice you are looking for?
