sketchy 107

It's kinda funny how perceptions can be changed and influenced. I always considered Photoshop to be the absolute last tool suited to drawing on the computer - it just seemed so clunky and too generalised. It also lacks paint based modes for mixing colours.

So it is with much surprise that the drawing above was created with Photoshop...

I was digging around Youtube for some time-lapse paintings created with ArtRage when I stumbled across this incredibly talented guy on the tube who works exclusively with PS. I checked out a bunch of his clips and decided it was time to give PS a go. Ironically, using PS I spend 90 percent of the time worrying about the 'look' of the image, instead of the 'way' to achieve the look (as was happening with the psuedo-real tool set of ArtRage).

Anyway, to get started with PS I thought it was important to focus on something relatively small and simple - a photo for reference while only focusing on the eye. Good stuff.

Tools: Photoshop
Time: 2 hours


It turns out, I wasn't content with drawing just the eye ...
