Florian Satzinger: Drawing And Colouring The Fat Bird

Nine times of ten, my whole drawing and colouring process has just 5 steps:


I put up a small version of the fat bird's PSD file for download (zipped). So you can check out how I have it structured. Just click on the image below:

I love you all!

xD thanks for everything! That is an awesome thing what you've been doing, sharing those tips.

I wish, when I be a good artist, to share a lot of tips and help people, just like you all! =D

Thanks

Right! Sharing your secrets, that,s a better lesson that the file itself.
Amazing work, thanks a lot.

I've been wondering about your process! This is really helpful, thank you so much for sharing!

You seem to have lots of blue pencil drawings, but do you normally start drawing right onto Photoshop (like your file) or do you scan your pencil drawings and draw over them with Photoshop?

Cheers,
Junko

Oh wow, thanks everyone for the kind feedback, I appreciate that!!

By the way Junko, I'm doing more and more the blue pencils digitally, because it's a much faster process. But I'm still working with paper and pencils, too - it's a welcome change and I love the sound of paper :o)

Florian,

Thank you for answering my question!
As much as I enjoy digital painting, I also love the sound of paper :)

Best,
Junko

Your contour lies exactly on edge colors layer.
As you do that colors layer doesn't leave for edge and so it is accurate.
It is simply accurate work as an elastic band. Or what that cunning? :)
