Automatically turn photos into Pastel, Pencil, Chalk, Charcoal and Crayon.
Pastello is a companion app to JixiPix’s Impresso Pro which enables you to automatically turn photos into Pastel, Pencil, Chalk, Charcoal and Crayon. Away from brushes and large strokes and into the realm of dry media with color that is both brilliant and subtle. The “Dry color method” made famous by Leonardo da Vinci is so powerful in its simplicity and beauty with its black and red chalk and yellow pastel highlights.
Later, artists would paint charming portraits in a smooth heavily blended fashion. Move forward a few centuries later and pastel quickly became filled with brilliant color and crisp detail. Fast forward to today and a digital age has made it so you, the artist, can mix and match media that is difficult or impossible in a traditional setting.
Simply place an image in the app and watch as it turns into a Pastel, Chalk, Charcoal, Crayon, Colored Pencil and Graphite drawing. Choose to use each one of the medias by themselves, or combining them using layers for an interesting expressive sketch full of colorful personality and passion.
It includes plenty of traditional sketch styles as well as a BONUS one we call DaVinci. This art style combines pencil, charcoal, crayon and old paper in the form of a preset with all the freedom to customize, blend and fine-tune for an artwork filled with age, depth and timeless beauty.
