Blanche and the Lion - process
Recently I've been working on two new characters, Blanche the lion tamer, and the lion - as yet unnamed.
What I'm going to show below is how I went froma sketch on paper to recreating the drawing on my tablet.
Here is a photo of the picture originally drawn and coloured in pencil.
2. I put a transparent layer on top and traced the outline. I saved the transparency to use again later.
3. I now have the outline on a white background.
4. Next, colour is added.
5. Then, some shadow to give perspective.
6. Finally, I add the eyes and tidy up a little. I then end by applying the transparent outline again to make the lines clearer.
