Step 6 The hand was hand-drawn and scanned into Photoshop. And as before, I created an outline as well as a solid form. This means that the shape is more flexible and easily selected when passing certain elements in front of or behind it.
I also experimented with a photograph of glitter over the lips, using a Lighten blending mode at 100% opacity.
Step 7 The record deck’s arm was been created in the same way as the hand. I’ve adjusted the opacity of the solid form to show you how the outline and solid elements interact. When positioned in the finished image, it will look similar to the final hand shape shown.
Step 8 I scanned the drawing of the microphone shown and treated it as I did the portrait, adjusting the contrast and creating an outline of it. Incidentally, to make it easier to find and manipulate elements, I usually group all the layers of one particular element together.
