Step 1: I draw the sketch on Mischief, ‘cause I love the Mischief’s pencil <3
Step 2: Ink the draw in Manga Studios, and then I fix it on Photoshop
Step 3: Color base and frame (Photoshop). I do all character base colors on the same layer and I use to save the selection for any area, for example here I had a selection for hair, one for skin, one for the ribbon and one for the crown. The frame and the background are each on a different layer.
Step 4: Add shadows and details in the frame. I create a new layer for the shadows with blend mode set on ‘linear burn’ and I use a cold grey for all shadows (skin, hair, clothes ecc.) If the shadows are too cold I’m going to modify color to Hue/Saturation. Add the text and the little decoration that I have draw with vector.
Step 5: Add Light and effect. On another layer with blend mode set on linear dodge (add) I add the light with white, not gray ‘cause is too dark. Finally, I go on Filter > Render > Lighting Effects and I set it as I like.
