I’ve blocked in the main colors first and will now start building one thing at a time leaving the background for last and making my changes along the way. Naturally I go right to the eyes first and then spread out from there.
It seems as though I always find something new and exciting to work with in Photoshop. I don’t typically use the smudge tool but I’m having a good time with it today blending the highlights and shadows. I’ve found some wonderful free brushes online that are fantastic for Gaurdie’s hair. I’ll have to see if I can find a really good texture for his coat. I’m thinking it needs to be wool.
Next I’ll finish the beard and ear, then start working on the hat.
Happy art day to everyone!
