Turn your pen drawing into a coloured illustration in Photoshop!

SUPPLIES

  • Photoshop CC (Free Trial)
  • A scanner
  • A bold but simple pen and ink drawing on A4 paper. When drawing, ensure that each shape draw is a solid outline without any gaps or sketchiness.....  feel free to use the template in the resources section if you don't have your own one to hand.

Please share the following in the Class Project Gallery:

  • A photo of your initial illustration or sketch.
  • An image of your final coloured illustration.
  • ...and anything else you wish to share!

RESOURCES

If you don't have your own sketch to use please feel free to use this sketch below for personal use (not commercial). I have also included a link to Adobes free trial of Photoshop. 

STEP 1:

Scan your image and get it ready to clean up.

STEP 2 :

In this step I will teach you how to prepare and clean up your scanned illustration ready to colour.

STEP 3:

In this section we will be adding colour  to your illustration.  

Don't forget to share your finished work in the project gallery if you'd like some feedback from fellow students or myself :)

Happy colouring in Photoshop!
