Overlay magic!

Overlay magic! - student project

I really enjoyed this class!   It was thorough, well-presented and easy to follow.  I had a blast making my overlays.  Here are 4 of them, and I know I'll be creating a lot more.

I made a simple drawing with flat color and my usual sketchy, black outlines.

Then I added my overlays.  I used the scratchy overlay (top right) to give some furry texture to the bunny.  I used my hand-painted overlay (top left) on top of the whole drawing to add interest.  Then I used the scratchy overlay with very low opacity over the top.  The last thing I did was add a a sparkle to the eye!

I was amazed at how much the overlays changed my simple, flat drawing.  Using overlays is a quick and easy way to make a basic drawing look extra special.  It's like magic!  I foresee using this technique a lot in my digital drawing.
