Re­move the char­ac­ter

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

Us­ing the Lasso tool, I se­lect the char­ac­ter and any­thing at­tached to him in the fore­ground. I’m not su­per care­ful, be­cause I’m go­ing to clean up and change as I go. This is an im­por­tant step: you don’t want to be paint­ing around your char­ac­ter ev­ery time you need to change the back­ground. Do­ing this makes it much eas­ier to change things.

Smudge my edges

Now that my char­ac­ter is sep­a­rated from the back­ground, I switch to my Smudge tool to start clean­ing up. Ev­ery­thing I’ve done so far is about cre­at­ing a base. I’ll be paint­ing over the whole thing now. There’ll be plenty of work in clean­ing it up and the Smudge tool helps a lot, smooth­ing out messy ar­eas, soft­en­ing round edges and so on.
