4.1 Conclusion

I hope you've learned something during this course. Let's now take a last look at painting the project from start to finish as I give additional comments and tips relating to digital inking. Thanks for watching!

4.1 Conclusion

So now we're at the end of the course, we're just gonna wrap things up with a recap. Okay so we're at the end of this course, so we covered some of everything in this course. We talked about creating our cross hatching, how to take our sketches and build on top of our sketches, how to build highlights. How to use grays. How to use light on top of grays to create the illusion of depth. We talked about how to handle curves and many other things. These techniques can be used in anything from comic book illustration, to digital illustration, to concept art and to presentation art. When I came up with this years ago, like I said earlier, it was for presentation when I was designing toys. It turned out to be a very useful tool, and it's always been a part of my workflow, and has been very helpful for me. So feel free to experiment, try different things, try different colors in the background instead of grey. Maybe try browns, reds, blues, and see what you can do. You can also try to merge all of your ink layers together as one file, as one smart object, and then change the colors by hitting Ctrl+U. So, at the end of this, you should have one more arrow in your quiver. You should have another opportunity to add to your portfolio and add to the type of work that you're creating. And hopefully, you feel like you learned something that was worthwhile. Now, as a reminder, your project doesn't have to look exactly like mine. All I wanna do is make sure that you understand how to use the techniques, how to use the tools, how to get comfortable with the paint tool, how to build your colors, how to create depth with colors, and things of that nature. And now you know how to Ink using Photoshop. All right, so, now you are able to take these techniques and add them to your everyday artwork flow. And it should improve your portfolio over all. You should see a tremendous improvement in your work flow. And it's a fun way of creating art. So keep practicing, the more you use it the easier it becomes. Have fun with it. Best of luck to everyone.
