Thank you both! I mainly use Photoshop to paint. Most of the brushes I use, can be found on Sophie Li’s FAQ page. She is one of my favorite artists btw! :)

Here’s a rushed rough explanation of my painting process:

  1. Start of with a quick sketch, doesn’t have to be clean, try to stay loose and feel the movement.
  2. Paint the silhouette beneath your sketch on a new layer. For me this is the most important step! I know a lot of people want to get to coloring quickly, but don’t rush this step. A strong silhouette can make your painting a lot better.
  3. Once you’re satisfied, lock your silhouette layer and give it some love in form of colors. By locking the layer you can only paint within the silhouette. Go wild, try different colors and brushes! ^^
  4. On a new layer, above the initial sketch, add in details and corrections if needed (like I did with his hand). Lastly turn off the sketch layer and you’re done!

Hope this quick walk-through could help you gain a little insight on how I paint. :)
