Chapter 2: The Scavenger

Here's an example of taking a thumbnail to finish.

This particular example is from Jack & Inar, written and illustrated by your very own humble The Photoshop Experiment proprietor, set for publication in early 2008. Check back for updates.

never you mind this. ^

Anyway, on to the demo:


the thumbnail.

Here's the finished drawing. The video below documents the process.

And here's the trick, watercolor painting on top of the drawing.


Turning it all to B/W.

Adding some more shadows.


Notice the addition of light with a fine layer of Screen.


I used a later of Lighten and turned down the opacity some to push this running guy into the back some more.

Finally, a layer of Soft Light, low opacity to achieve the sepia look the book possesses.
