Line Art Samples for PhotoShop Colouring.
This is a quick tutorial on using Photoshop for Concept Art Sketch Colouring. – This session is run with Yr 1 Games Design and Animation students – usually at the 3rd/4th week mark.
We won’t be looking at heavy detail work, but instead very rapid washes of colour, on a single layer.
We’ll look at using layers another time when you have a little more work under your belts.
Okay, so this is a basic striped down intro to Photoshop’s artistic tools (tutors, you can run this following part of the session on a whiteboard or flip chart, the students should be taking notes not looking for drop-downs and so not listening to you).
With those bits of information in your notebooks, you should be able to find your way to any of the processes that follow.
You should be able to explain the meaning and/or use of the following showing examples of your experimentation in your own time with:
- Scale; Rotate; Distort.
- Brightness/Contrast, Curves, Hue/Saturation.
The Marque, and Lasso Tools.
Dodge & Burn Tools.
Resolution, Rasta & Vector.
The only thing you will be missing is an image to work with. This can be remedied in one of three ways.
1 - Draw your own…
2 - Make your own in SketchUp… > SketchUp Breakdown and Build & Compound Curves Speed Tutorial > Photoshopped 3D RoboBike 001 > Photoshopped 3D RoboBike 002
3 - for the time being, practice using line art kindly donated by another (See Below).
BUT REMEMBER! When using someone else’s line art, ask permission or make sure they have made the work available. And do he right thing… put a link on your post back to the creators site. You would want them to treat yo the same way.
For those of you who are looking at the number 3 option, I have uploaded a number of line art images below.
