Umm Watch the animation : ) This is for mextreehugger
If some parts of the animation don't work..or it dies
This is How I do things:
First off, Sketch what you want. It doesn't have to be detailed, just something you
can...I unno base a drawing off of. Like a pose of sort, I don't zoom in when I do
then go over it with a little darker shade (I sketch with light pink and I go over
top it with a dark shade of pink) and add more details. Just draw something for you
to outline over.
All of this is done on layer 0
Layer2, I do lineart
I use pen at 1 pixel and it's on curve, not free hand.
and for this, I zoom into the drawing. too zoom in press the + button at the corner
and to zoom out press the - at the other corner.
Also, while outlining. I tend to Ctrl+z when I outline so I can get the "right" line
After that, I color layer 0 blue or what ever color you want
and on layer 1, I color. I begin with skin. and don't forget to make a light source,
mine here is at the top right corner. I choose shades of peach I want and begin
shading. I use one shade with pen, then I soften it with watercolor. and I keep
doing that for about...3 shades. then I go over it with a dark air brush color. I
add blush with air brush and add white with pen for shines.
The hair. I choose a color, shades and I drag, I go with the flow of the hair. I use
the pen tool and go over it with water color to smooth it out... the last shade I add
onto the hair wiht pen, I don't soften with watercolor. Instead I taper the ends of
the lines, tapering it just making a point to it so it looks cleaner .
and the clothing, same deal, just shade it and keep in mind the folds and such. : )
I didn't use dodge or burn at all.
also, I'll let you guy see the oekaki, see how I use layer and etc.
