Monster Sketch and a quick Photoshop tutorial

Monday, December 5th, 2011

This troublesome little monster was inspired my ferocious and furry fiendish feline friend…my cat Fiero.


For fun, I thought I’d spend a little time and color my drawing in Photoshop. 


This is really easy to do.  Simply scan in your drawing, open it in Photoshop and set your drawing layer to “multiply.”  Then create a new layer beneath your drawing layer and start painting!  If you want paint on top of the pencil lines for a smoother, more realistic look you can create another layer on top of your drawing layer I did this over the eyes since my drawing was pretty scribbly in that area.


This is much more satisfying than a traditional coloring book and gives you a good base if you ever want to take your drawing further by getting rid of the pencil lines and make it look realistic.  I might finish this picture off sometime but for now I hope you enjoyed this little monster from my Photoshop coloring book Smile
