Sketching in Photoshop: step by step
For those of you who wonder how I create my sketches, I am doing a step by step (kind of). This is the final ink:
So how do I start? I just visualised a pose in my head and then acted it out. Trying to "feel" the pose I was doing. Since I don't have a mirror or don't use reference, I'm just trying to think about where my feet are in relation to my hips and what the general movement is.
As you can see underneath, the line of action that follows through from the leg, to spine to head is clear.
When I now compare it to the final image, I clearly lost that which is why the final result looks a bit dull.
See I didn't post this to show you all how good I am, no..I make a ton of mistakes. And I think it's much more useful to learn from these mistakes, so I'm sharing them with you all :)
