Draw Baselines, use a B pencil.
Do lineworks until you have a satisfying shape.
Finished drawing baselines, roll kneaded eraser, and make lines pale.
Do like that, other works will be comfortable.
It doesn’t need to be serious because lines will fade out during painting.
2.Paint a base color
Usually, I choice Yellow Ochre, Raw Umber as a base color.
(I use Holbein Transparent Watercolor)
Paind shade. Do not paint the highlights.
Because, in the watercolor, most brightest white is paper’s white.
Once you paint some colors, this white will never return…
(But you can wash off color by using water if its soon after painting.)
Painting main colors.
Paint after drying completely, colors become deeper, stronger, and get vivid.
If you want to get colors soft, you should paint before drying.
Paint area still wet, colors will be graded.
In this way, adjust tone of colors.
I’m sure Watercolor is addition. Add in colors and make deep.
Adding colors like a layer is going to make interesting tone, deep feeling.
5.And more Paint
Adjust a edge and the whole of shape mainly. Draw details.
As of finished painting, baselines almost faded out.
Draw baselines once more.
Tracing lines make shape more sharper.
7.Scan and Adjust by Photoshop
Finaly,scan drawing and ask Master Photoshop’s help.
Remove trash, adjust a contrast, use a overlay, or arrange something.
Great Master Photoshop!
Looks like another art…
