Art GGX picture

Recommended Posts

Just recently, I've tried a new way of drawing pictures on photoshop. And that is, to take a picture of a sketch in my notebook and draw over that. I've never done it before, and I spent a great deal of time over the last three days working on this. I really liked how the final product turned out, so I thought it would be nice to share it with you all. I included the original pic of the sketch as well as the (very bad looking) lineart so you could see the three main steps.

I think this gal is from a video game. This is my half of an art trade with someone on TheO ^^
These might be a little big.

[SIZE=1]I'd say this is outstanding work, and even better considering the method through which it was brought about. Very nice coloring, especially the eyes, by the way.

Next time, if you have a scanner, I'd recommend you scan in the picture. It's alot more accurate and gives the image more quality. Even if you can't do that, sketching on plain white paper does wonders as well, as far as the clean up process goes. You'll find that you wouldn't have to retrace your lines, but merely touch them up if you use white paper and an image editing program.

So, good luck with all your future art; you seem pretty gifted thus far.[/SIZE]

I do actually have a scanner. But since I would have to unplug my laptop from all the junk it's connected to and carry it to my brother's room to hook it up, I find taking a picture much easier. Not to mention, I can't get the scanner to work with me. My pic always look awful with it.

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but I'm not exactly sure what [I]something [/I]is yet. And you're right. I should have done it on white paper XD But I don't think it would have been much more helpful to me since my hand is shaky when using my mouse, so using the pen tool and creating new lineart is pretty much necessary
