Ad­just her proportions

Master the tones

As the sketch de­vel­ops, I con­cen­trate on get­ting the proportions of my character cor­rect. The best way to do this in Pho­to­shop is to cre­ate a se­lec­tion with the Lasso tool and then move the cho­sen el­e­ment with the Trans­for­ma­tion tools. It’s more ef­fi­cient and ef­fec­tive to work on small ar­eas at a time, rather than try to cor­rect a large area of anatomy in one go.

De­fine ma­te­ri­als in the scene

I give her a leather jacket be­cause it suits her street look, and be­cause it con­trast with other ma­te­ri­als in the scene, such as the plas­tic on her shoul­ders or rub­ber on her shoes. When paint­ing tex­tures with­out ref­er­ences it’s help­ful to place two very dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als (matte and shiny, say) along­side each other.
