How to draw Oscar with photoshop?


    This’s how I drew my arts by computer:

Note:I usually use illustrator and photoshop, but on this tutorial, I only used photoshop.

    First, you need 2 pic, a real pic to copy the posture (this’s not necessary if you’re good with anatomy, but I’m not -_-! ), and a pic of your character , this time, I use these:

real pic

Oscar's pic

  • you can download the full size of the real pic here , and the Oscar’s pic here

And you can download the original video with normal speed here

Now, here’s the specific instructions:

    1. Open photoshop, open the real pic
      Follow this: filter-aristic-cutout and fill the bland like this pic

      • tips:
    • You can download the plugin neat image demo here, and if you want to download the crack also, leave a comment with your email address and I’ll send you ^_^
    • Always make new layer for everything: the outline, the colour, the hair…it would be easy to fix something afterwards
    • Use pen tool to draw the face and other detail, it’ll make your pic more “real”
    • If you don’t know how to use pentool, you should take a look here
    • After drew by pentool, press ctrl+enter to make it become a selection, or, right click and chose “make selection”
    • And if you have anything to ask, feel free to ask me, you’re wellcome 🙂
