    [size="5"]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. [size="3"]Chapter 1 - Introduction In this introduction we'll briefly describe what will be covered in the following tutorial.


    [size="3"]Chapter 2 - Line Drawing In this chapter we begin to fill in the line drawing with a solid tone.


    [size="3"]Chapter 3 - Shading In this chapter we'll merge the line drawing and fill layers together then begin shading in details.


    [size="3"]Chapter 4 - Rendering In this chapter we'll start to add definition and depth to the shaded outline.


    [size="3"]Chapter 5 - Duplicate & Flip Horizontal In this chapter you'll duplicate the rendered half of your drawing, then flip it horizontally to create a full character.


    [size="3"]Chapter 6 - Backside By duplicating our front view we'll quickly paint the back view of our character.


    [size="3"]Chapter 7 - Sideview In this section we'll create the side view of our character using the front and back views as guides.


    [size="3"]Chapter 8 - Color Overlay In this chapter we'll finish off our character with some color. First we'll create a new layer and fill it with color then we'll set the blending mode to overlay.
