Another piece to polish….
Here is the reference:
Friday…I’m in nocturnal mode,again. I find it hard to get some sleep this past few days..I don’t know why. That night, so many thoughts that are running through my mind and I end up editing this picture, so I decided to do a vector, this time. It took me 5hrs to do this piece. Hope you like it.
Here is the picture:
If you’re new in vectoring pictures, this is not the good reference to make. Find something clear and have a high resolution.
Roz, for her upcoming birthday… I’m glad for having some free time to practice my sketching.And I feel sorry for the victim. =)
Subject: Roz, my officemate & a good friend of mine. I just rendered some details.
Platform: Adobe CS3, Watercolor & round soft brush
Listening: “Mustang” by Asian Kungfu Generation
Subject: Manny Pacquiao
Technique: Caricature (on process : ] )
Materials: Photoshop CS3
Brush: Adobe Photoshop No. 63 brush (Opacity:20 Fill: 40. I also used round soft brush from time to time.)
Duration: Probably 8hrs with coffee breaks and hunting quest (Im currently playing monster hunter on PSP, c’mon guys, I need inspirations! *_*)
2. Using photoshop, I created a new document, probably, a letter size and a 250 resolution. Any size that you prefer. Copy the sketch and paste in in your new document.
I just want to boost the lines of my drawing so I adjusted the lines by pressing (ctrl+L) to bring out the command levels.
3. With layer selected, I duplicate the layer (original sketch) so I can have a raw copy of it when everything messed up. Then I created a new layer and fill it with dark gray. This will serve as my midtones when painting the whole sketch.
And I created a duplicate of the sketch and the blending mode to “multiply”. This will help you see your sketch when painting the entire photo.
Your layer should look like this:
6. Create another layer on top of the colored layer and name it highlight. all the light colors will be in this layer so it wont messed up when started to blend the whole thing, remember, you’re painting without a pen tablet, you’re using a mouse.
The final image.
