- Program: Photoshop CS2
- Digital Painting-Photoshop Tutorials
Step 1 - Concept and arranging the main sketchI draw a lot of simple sketches on a computer or maybe sometimes on paper. I am going to use an old sketch work of mine. Here is the main sketch work which I draw. If you want, you can use this sketch too.
Step 2 – The sketchLet me show you a screenshot from the main sketch. The first character was a simple sketch for a storybook illustration. I often draw a lot of simple sketches to represent the story, but when I go back to look at it, I realize that I would only use one of the sketches. The sketch used for this tutorial is one that I didn’t use on my other projects.
Step 3 - Setting the CanvasFor the final sketch work, Photoshop File size is 900x2158. Here are the canvas settings:
