Explore Deke’s Techniques at lynda.com.
This week’s technique is all about hand-painting a majestic image of a lion with Adobe Photoshop. Although Deke will use a high-end Wacom Cintiq tablet/monitor device to perform his wizardry, have no fear—you don’t need a tablet to follow along.
You’ll learn how to resample an image to make sure you’re working with the highest-resolution file possible, use the Brush tool to draw an outline of the image, paint in highlights, add colorful detail, and make an entirely new work of art from an existing photograph. Watch the free video below to learn about painting images in Photoshop.
Members of the lynda.com library can watch the follow-up video where Deke blends the existing layers to create the final version of the artwork. Come back next week to learn how to create a honeycomb pattern with Adobe Illustrator.
