Ex­port the im­age

Go to Ex­port Im­age from the File menu. Se­lect the Vis­i­ble Can­vas op­tion to ex­port ev­ery­thing on screen as a PSD file. This en­ables you to have all of the in­di­vid­ual lay­ers when you open it up in Pho­to­shop. Be sure to ex­port at a large-enough DPI value (300 for print and 72 for web).

Clean up in Pho­to­shop

The fun part of work­ing with real media is liv­ing with the mess. I also love the free­dom that Pho­to­shop af­fords me to change an il­lus­tra­tion. To help fo­cus on the cen­tral por­tion of the ship, I want to re­move some of the hap­haz­ard marker. I add a mask on the marker layer and use a pres­sure-sen­si­tive air­brush to gen­tly fade the marker away around the cock­pit.
