This colored drawing was more or less done in Photoshop. Okay, I did a first drawing with pencil and ink, but then I took a photo of it with my digital camera and continued to work on it with Photoshop.
My first step here was to outline the face with a brush on a new layer. I haven’t got a wacom tablet, so it took quite some time and a very steady hand to do the lines. In a second step I colored the head in the lightest pink I could get. Every time I went over the outlines I used the eraser. It is important here to be sure on which layer you are working! It is also important to zoom in for details.
In a third step I used darker pink colors to shade. I did not have a reference photo to see exactly where the darker parts of the face are, so I did it as I thought it would be correct–which might be wrong!
By the way: I thought about a caption for the colored drawing. What about “Yes, I know, I am fat. So what?” What other captions are you thinking about?
