Cutout






I did some sketches last night and decided to play around with them in Photoshop. I don't normally do this because I don't really know what I'm doing, or how to get it to colour in well. The original drawing, which is on the bottom left was done with a 2H pencil so was really faint and I had to play around with the settings just to bring the darkness of the line up a bit. My scanner is probably not the greatest one and I had to rip the drawing out of the large hardcover sketchbook to get a decent scan. I used some brushes with a wet media preset and they were really great to use as the colours looked brighter and also translucent. I then applied a few filters to the images, my favourite being the cutout filter on the top right. You can see more on my Flickr page, as well as larger sizes.
