|1. First some of my better roughs were emailed and a design selected.|
2. Original Drawing scanned, printed larger and then transferred to paper using Tracedown.
3. Original markings erased so that image just shows through - enough to make an ink outline, using pen.
|4. The start of shading in the image using pen.|
5. The final artwork which is then scanned and opened in Photoshop.
6. SunSwallow selected and background deleted. I used a mask and brush tool to tidy up the edges of the image, duplicated the layer and adjusted the histogram and contrast to match the original more closely.
|7. The original document was saved, flattened and then dragged to a new document with the required image size. The outside of the image was cropped and then the final image saved. The original .psd file remains intact with all its layers.|
