Here's another cool thing you can do with a scan or photograph of a drawing

Step 1: Draw line art with whatever pencil or pen you have and then scan it or take a photo of it. Take the scan/photo and set the saturation to 0% and ramp up the contrast pretty high and you get nice line art


Then just be lazy again and magic wand select the background and delete it


Next step: Magic wand select the white and transparent areas then do select -> inverse. This is the lazy way to eliminate aliasing issues and make the lines a little more solid and inky. Use a brush to draw everything in one color to get solid line art, then start using other colors to distinguish outlines between different things, keeping your current selection the entire time so you don't color outside the lines



Next, create a layer behind the line art and fill each section in with a lighter color. BIG ART TIP FOR NEWBIES: Don't just fill a section with a brighter/darker version of the same color. To fill in the brown rocks I mixed in some yellow. I also mixed in some yellow with the green in the plans. For the buildings I shifted the blue toward purple


Then to add in some special effects I select the white and move it to its own layer on the top, then create a 25% opacity layer beneath it and add some glass color to the dome that you might not see in my post yet because it's very similar to byob background colors


Next take a photo from the NASA astronomy photo of the day



And as a final step look up the NASA Image Use Policy to make sure the image can be used for commercial purposes then shamelessly participate in capitalism by selling it as a t-shirt and collect those internet dollars


And insert a SEO-friendly link:
'Are you there, Saturn? We need a new home.' T-Shirt by @bleaksploitation


Total time start to finish: 1 hour and 12 minutes, including time spent cuddling with a cat, but not including time spent on the original drawing in the first place, I drew it months ago it's part of this:

I'd probably take a picture of any of these if I saw it. I wouldn't take it because I would assume someone would come looking for it eventually (unless it was there for several days but someone else would probably just snag it first). These are really cool, and leaving them as gifts is a really cool idea.

I'm used to pretty much only coloring things in flat shades with actual acrylic or pen or whatever, and I also have never mixed traditional scanned drawing with adding additional detail in photoshop while coloring so I'm just trying new things here




From this scanned pen drawing:


Even just all of that has been a ton of work I am really not looking forward to shading the clouds in particular

Macnult


i really like the mixture of scanned drawings with digital additions. those shaded clouds are gonna be so worth it i feel like

I'm not sure yet how I feel about this method for the clouds:


I used a very low flow rate airbrush to paint shadows and highlights on them, then on another layer above them I painted a low opacity grey "mist" highlighting them and around their edges. Then I put a lens flare on the layer with the greys to emulate light shining on the tops of the clouds and diffusing throughout them. I think it looks kind of sloppy so maybe I'll re-do it but But it did at least clearly separate the line art bits like the buildings and vehicles from the clouds.

Maybe have a layer of clouds over the cars on the road and obscuring part of the skyline too

And of course I can still mess with the color, I'm having a real hard time settling on a color for the sky + clouds



Doing it this way has one pretty major benefit, it will let me get very creative with having various lights (windows, headlights, neon signs I'll add to buildings, whatever) that diffuse through the clouds and create neat glow effects that will make the city pop and seem livelier

i like the brightness of the clouds. it looks like there's a lot going on, but with a lighter color it feels less overwhelming

I have the next 8 days off from work, one of the things I want to do is put together a bunch of somewhat generic landscapes that I can use for some unknown project (either a comic book or a video game or something, idk) anyway here's the one I started this afternoon



I'll probably draw different foregrounds and backgrounds and then combine them modularly


I've always sorta wanted to make a CYOA game using Twine or something like that so that's kind of what's on my mind

i’m digging the progress you’ve made with it. have you thought about experimenting with clouds in the sky? it might carry over from the previous thing you were working on

Sort of. I've been trying to do a kind of volumetric clouds thing with light shining off the moon

I don't really have it where I want it though. Here's a bigger version of where it's at right now
