Us­ing Adobe Photo’chop

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

The dif­fer­ences be­tween my car­toon sketch and the photo shoot are im­mense, but not to worry, Lasso tool is here! Make a se­lec­tion with the Lasso, then se­lect Copy Merge and Paste in Place. This will cre­ate a flat­tened layer of your se­lec­tion that can now be scaled and dis­torted to fit into place. I use an air­brush to erase the cut marks for a clean fin­ish.

Ren­der the im­age

My sketch is slowly mould­ing into a more ac­cu­rate de­pic­tion of my sub­ject. I work like a sculp­tor, push­ing and pulling un­til the shapes and pro­por­tions be­come more co­her­ent. Af­ter a break, I get my fresh eyes on the paint­ing and con­tinue to push the draw­ing, colour, value and of course, my brush qual­ity.
