I chose Alice in Wonderland as the theme for this illustration.
I decided to create an illustration that captures Alice's daydreaming and the dreamlike atmosphere of Wonderland.
First of all, I draw while thinking about the approximate position of the character and the setting of the picture.
I’ve roughly decided the composition, so I add an [Overlay] layer in blue over the line art folder.
I’ll decide the color scheme.
I want to make a picture with a strong feeling of being in Alice's dream world, so I choose colors that will make the illustration look vibrant.
To make the colors blend in with the color of the lines, I set the blending mode of this layer to [Multiply].
From the color set I registered earlier, I choose bright, saturated colors.
I add a new layer set to [Screen] and refine my draft by deepening the colors and emphasizing the airy feeling.
I draw some more details on Alice and Humpty-Dumpty.
Next I’ll slightly adjust the positions of Alice and the Cheshire Cat, and draw in some more details.
I move all the layers into a layer folder, then drag the folder onto the [New Raster Layer] icon on the layer palette to duplicate it.
I right-click the duplicated folder and select [Combine Selected] to merge the folder into a single layer.
On this layer, I make some adjustments and add extra details.
For now I’ve finished my rough draft.
