Intro

In this tutorial, artist Ollie Munden takes you through the process of creating his three-colour painting, Chasing The Dragon, through a mix of Photoshop and pencil techniques. First off you’ll mock up what you want to create using photography, then create a pencil drawing from that. Taking your drawing, you’ll retrace this by hand with a Brush Pen, then transform it into a slick-looking, three-colour digital artwork.

The tutorial also shows you how to colour your finished artwork using a mixture of digital and hand-drawn techniques.

These skills can be used to produce your own unique pieces of artwork with a fluid, yet bold graphic style.
