Step-by-step: From quick ges­ture draw­ings to colour por­traits

ImagineFX - - Imaginenation Artist Q&a -

1 When do­ing ges­ture stud­ies it’s cru­cial to cap­ture the model’s pose as quickly as pos­si­ble. Make quick, broad marks by us­ing the flat side of your pen (note that not all of Pro­cre­ate’s brushes use the Tilt op­tion) and then add a cou­ple of thin­ner lines for de­tail.

2 When the poses last longer you can in­tro­duce more de­tail. You can still use the method men­tioned be­fore to draw the ba­sic fig­ure/por­trait and then slowly add to it as you would with any other draw­ing. I like to use the Pen­cil brush for this, but that’s just a per­sonal pref­er­ence.

3 For cre­at­ing a colour sketch I do a quick line draw­ing of the fig­ure on a Mul­ti­ply layer (click N in the Layer menu to change blend­ing modes). I add a colour base un­derneath with a Soft brush and then lock it by swip­ing two fin­gers to the right on the layer.
