Tip: Turning Scanned Pencil Sketches into Digital Paintings Hello and Welcome to this tip covering Turning Scanned Pencil Sketches and Drawings into Digital Paintings.

Tim Von Rueden takes us through his process of scanning a sketch and getting it prepped for a digital painting. This includes scanning, cropping, then separating the pencil line work from the background.

Here is the result we are trying to achieve with a clean line art from the sketch and have it be separated from the background:

Creating Realistic Wrinkles and Folding Fabric

After being asked by Kent to sculpt a creature concept, went ahead and recorded the process, with no real tutorial in mind but led to the idea of doing a tutorial on coloring technique done with a greyscale technique. 

Many artists work this way and build up their values before adding color! It’s a great way to focus on lighting without worrying about color balance, harmony, saturation, etc.

Look forward to that happy accident sometime after the Cecelia course =]


Hey everyone, Just finished recording this upcoming tutorial that focuses on two subject matters:

1. How to work from a sketch that wasn’t scanned in properly and how to incorporate the texture quality into the piece. 
2. Working using ONLY the soft edge brush. Yep, that means for EVERYTHING. It’s important to understand that you don’t need fancy brushes or overlaid textures to end up with work you can be proud of!

This tutorial will be released next week on the site! If you are interested, but aren’t a citizen member, you can sign up HERE: cgcookie.com/membership/
