- The first bit of color I'm going to lay down…in this illustration is going to be white.…The white areas of the bird that is,…but before I can paint in white,…I need to establish a background color…so that the white will even show up.…So, I want to quickly lay down my background color.…Now, in our layers,…you want to make sure you're on a Draw Layer,…like we are here.…I've gone ahead and gotten rid of our sketch…because we don't need it anymore.…We have our base art established,…so I've gone ahead and removed that…and we're going to draw on this Draw Layer shown here.…
Once again, you can't name layers…and I kinda wish you could…because it makes organization easier if you can name them.…You can look at a word…and you don't have to try to read a really small thumbnail.…Hopefully they will add that in later.…We're going to switch to the Pen tool…here in the toolbar, the top one.…We'll tap on that…and I want to create a background color…that is a green color.…So, I've already kinda loaded that in…through the use of a capture app on my iPhone.…
