Black and white sketch

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

I pro­duce a more elab­o­rate sketch in Pho­to­shop, us­ing only black and white. I pre­fer to use a brush with Opac­ity turned off, so I can fo­cus on pos­i­tive and neg­a­tive spa­ces. This also helps me de­velop con­trast­ing el­e­ments. When I draw I switch be­tween black and white, de­fine the masses and then add light to sur­faces. This cre­ates vol­ume and light di­rec­tion quickly with­out spend­ing too much time on de­tails, and re­sults in plenty of in­ter­est­ing shapes on the can­vas. The brush I use is a stan­dard one with a slight ro­ta­tion on Pres­sure and Size. The edges are sharp and this helps me to cre­ate strong shapes.
