My husband showed me a tutorial on coloring images, and I decided to try it out since I’m trying to transition from traditional media to digital media.
I sketched out a random picture of myself on a crummy piece of notebook paper (see edges). Then I used a sepia-colored School-G Tachikawa pen to outline it.
Cleaned up the pencil marks with a plastic eraser.
Went over the outline with the same pen and darkened some areas.
Put the file into Adobe Illustrator, traced it, and colored it with base colors.
Took the image to Adobe Photoshop, made a transparent layer, used the “Lasso” to pick the highlights, and brushed and smudged the colors for the face.
Finished my first Photoshop mini-project (and my new profile pic)!
