[/center]Concept Art With Photoshop – Characters
In this tutorial we'll cover the steps on how to create an orthographic character rendering in Photoshop. We'll begin with a line drawing of half the character then refine the edges as we fill it in. Next we'll continue working in grey-scale while adding shading and lighting to bring out the character's form. Then using simple Photoshop techniques we'll go on to create symmetrical front, back and side renderings. Finally, we'll add a color overlay to give our character a unique look.
