per­spec­tive grids to get it right

1 Line work in per­spec­tive

Af­ter the rough idea is vi­su­alised in a vague sketch, I drop in my per­spec­tive guide­lines and start re­draw­ing the scene as ac­cu­rately as pos­si­ble. To start with I don’t con­cern my­self with the char­ac­ters’ clothes – I’ll draw those in a later step.

2 Rough colours

I usu­ally try sev­eral colour pal­ettes, us­ing ad­just­ment lay­ers and lay­ers to ex­per­i­ment with dif­fer­ent vari­a­tions, but for this one I had a pretty clear idea of what I wanted, so I just painted di­rectly un­der the lines un­til I was happy with the re­sults.

3 Paint­ing over the lines

I paint over the lines, smudg­ing and ad­just­ing my way to com­ple­tion. I like to work in just one layer be­cause it’s more man­age­able and makes it eas­ier to use the Smudge tool. Af­ter the ren­der­ing is done I’ll use ad­just­ments to fur­ther pop the colours.
