Exercise for digital painting. Firstly, the sketch was drawn with pencil on brown, textured paper.
The sketch was scanned and transferred. I opened it with Photoshop and played around with the levels to bring out the colour and texture of the paper more. I think traced over the initial drawing using the graphics tablet, and began roughly filling in different colours and tonal values.
I like this technique. The qualities and textures of paper really adds something to an illustration.
