How To Paint Digitally over a Pencil Sketch (GIMP) by nataliebeth How To Paint Digitally over a Pencil Sketch (GIMP) by nataliebeth
Download for fullsize. If you have trouble reading my writing, comment and I'll decipher for you. ;)

Step-by-step of


Hi All,

I don't know how much this will help, but I thought I'd give a bit more of a detailed description of how I work. I also found this was something that I struggled with a while ago, so I figured maybe it may help someone. :aww:

This was done in GIMP, but will work just as well in Photoshop, with a few exceptions that shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

Reference for Castle: [link]

Thanks all, if you have any questions, don't hesitate.
:heart:

My biggest problem! And I've just found the solution! O.O

So, what you have to know is that I don't have a tablet and I always use mouse for digital drawings. But while drawing, the mouse is shaking causing harsh and crooked lines. (gah, stupid thing >-<) And this is where I give up... :D
But the thing that I can do the outline traditionally where my hand moves are predictible and reliable, I don't have to worry about the ugly lines! *-* Thank you so much!

And thanks for the tips about using different modes at the end of the work! They seem very useful! :)
