Well, I promised that I would post the process of my Barbara pic, so after a bit of a delay here it is. This is also a tutorial on how I go on about completing my drawings.

1) Sketch: I start with an initial sketch of the drawing, paying attention to the body construction and making the pose as dynamic as I need it to be. I either do the sketch in pencil then scan it or I do a digital sketch on Paint Tool Sai (as I did here). I find this to be the quickest way to jot down the drawing idea before going on to the next stage.

2) Inking: Using Sai, I begin to ink the drawing on a layer above the sketch layer. I pay attention to the basic form of the sketch underneath and try to wrap the lines around these forms, in order to achieve some dynamism with my lines. I also ink the small details in, like the scratches on the helmet and the straw on the boots.

3) Flat Colors: After the inking is finished, I then start to fill in the colors on a new layer. Sai has a great selection tool that helps me to fill in specific areas, which saves me a lot of time and effort.

4) Colored Lines: Now, in order to make the colors pop out in the drawing, I then start to color the lines around the flat colors. To acheive this, I go to my Inks layer, then I select the “Preserve Opacity” option above the layer box. This masks the layer in a way, and lets me change the color of what’s on the layer without bleeding outside the lines. I often color the lines in a darker tone than the colors around them, in the cases that I want to make something in the drawing look bright (like the hair and the ax), I make the lines a lighter color. I also took this time to put the flat color on the background, which I’ll add details in later.

5) Shading and highlights: After the lineart is completely colored, I then proceed to add the lighting and shade effects on a new layer. I often use the water brush in Sai to accomplish this (I used it on the ax), but in the case of this Barbara pic, I used the texture brush (the texture used was “Splotched Sidewalk”) which really helped me to acheive that “texture effect” that I was going for. I also normally reduce the opacity of the shading layer to “60%” though when I want the shades and highlights to pop out more, I boost up the opacity.

6) Background: After the character is completely done, I then start working on the background on a new layer behind the other ones, adding small details and light shading to make it appealing and blend with the main subject of the drawing.

After all this, I save the PSD file, open it in Gimp and save it as a PNG. And there you go! That’s how I get stuff done! This is how I personally do it, but there is no right or wrong way to draw art. Just draw using the process that is the most comfortable for you.

If you have any additional questions on my drawing process, just send me a note and I’ll gladly respond. :)
