Under Drawing Effect, Photoshop Tutorial
Painting is a substantial part for forming a nice cartoon character. However, it is not enough to most of the designers. Lighting and shadows for the characters are equally important. Here will help you to identify the important elements for your design.
In this tutorial it will show you how to make a professional, shiny, clean graduation hat icon. The last things need to do: add more highlights, make it shinier, make a reflection for the hat, make a shadow for the hat, and make a nice background.
Even though this is just a small color composition, take your time because this will be the foundation for your entire design. A good tip at this stage is to zoom out so that your canvas is very small on your screen. This way you can pay attention to the overall composition, the big shapes, and the organization of the elements, instead of getting caught up in the details that we will address later on.
To start a cartoon art painting, you have to sketch a draft. Based on that, you can develop a more detail draft and start your painting. This tutorial will show you skills to add different layers and add details for the cartoon characters.
