Step by step... by elgunto Step by step... by elgunto
Some people asked me step by step processes of my work...
So here is a step by step process for the "bunny" illustration...!


1. At first, the idea for this illustration was from my girlfriend. (she's my muse !!)
She made a really small and quick sketch...
(go see her blog, she's very talented : [link])

2. After that, I sketch the girl and the rabbits... I already have the composition of the drawing in my mind... (Generally I do several roughs to find a good composition)

3. I draw the background, very quickly.

4. I scan the different parts and put them together with Photoshop.

5. I print this drawing and I clean this rough sketch on my light table. I use a black pencil, a FaberCastell Polychromos, these are great colouring pencils...

6. And last step, I scan this pencilled version and color it with photoshop...!

Amazing! When you add the color, do you just put the color layer under the lines, or do you put it in multiply mode or what? I've never had muh luck trying to color my line work in photoshop.

Sorry for the lack of answer...
I use a photoshop script to color my line. You can download it here : [link]
You just have to use it on your black and white drawing, and it allows you to color directly your line...

Thank you, but I am unable to download it. Am I supposed to convert it from a .RAR to something else?

Ah...
Yes, you have to unzip the .rar file with a software like WinRAR. And you'll obtain a Photoshop Script file...

Oh!
That's how you do everytime? I mean, it's just beause I always line my drawings at FLASH, and everybody seems to use Photoshop or Illustrator and PEN TOOL, but t's so NO ME, I really hate Illustrator, really, because I can't work on it. So I wonder how other artists do it. Isdon't wanna bother, I just want to understand. I wanna improve you know and for that I need to study, ask, try.
So.... I like to see all tutorials and step by step that I can. I know that probably I'm skipping something, but I don't think I'll fit every way to do something. Some uses photoshop, some uses illustrator, some uses corel ...I'm trying to figure it out what works better for me, or what I can learn to improve. =]

Thanks anyway!
Thank you very much!

btw I think the colored version is awesome, a lot of times people like the inked/lineart version better but in this case I think that the colored is amazing :D

WOw! That looks amazing! I noticed that a lot of people use blue or pink/red pencils to for sketching, why is that? :/

Generally, people use colored pencils to sketch quickly. Then you can "clean" the rough sketch with a classic pencil.
With two colors, it's easier to see the black, cleaned line...
(and sorry for my rotten english, I hope my explanation was clear...)

Wow, nice! I love working with red and blue Col-erase pencils. I started using them in school and got hooked on them.

It's not really Col-Erase pencils... I find that these pencils are extremely expensive (in France anyway)...
I prefer use cheap color pencils... ;-)

Maybe I exaggerated a little... ;-)
They're not "extremely" expensive, but they are more expensive than traditional colors pencils... And they are very difficult to find...

I think this will always be one of my favorite pieces of yours. I'm amazed at how you're able to maintain that light touch through all the stages and not lose any of the life in the original sketches.
