Draw a girlWelcome~! This tutorial is based on how I draw in Illustrator~ I'm still learning how to use it~ ^^; But, I'll show you anyway~ I used Illustrator 9.0. This will work with other versions as well~ If you have any questions, please use my email from at my page~ It's in the links section. NOW, LETS BEGIN~ =D:
STEP 1:First off, open up a new image~ Now we
wanna use the pencil tool Now were gonna start off with the face
shape. Make sure your line and your fill color at the same. You can do that by
selecting a color. Suppose you chose it for the fill color, now drag that color
over into the line color box.
STEP 4:Then, make a new layer, above all layers, and name
is "hair". Just draw hair however you want the hair to look like~ Also draw in
It should look something like this. The
fill color should have a line striked through it. Vice Versa. If you look closely,
I Also did some shading in the face~ You can do this in solor shading, or airbrushy
shading~ To do the airbrush like shading, you draw your normal shading shape.
Then go to Effect>>Blur>> Gaussian blur. Remember, your shape has
to be selected, in order the blur to work.
STEP 7:Since I wanted my dress to be white, I made a new
layer, at the very bottom of all the layers, and colored it a random color, so
I know that I'm drawing the dress, without forgetting to colors in parts. Then
I shaded it with the gradient.
To change the color, just click on the squares, then move all the way over to the color boxes under the tools panel, then you just change it to whatever color. After, you can go to the swatches to adjust the color if needed. You can change the angle as well, but typing in a number, in the angle box.
STEP 8: After, I just drew the legs, and the purse. Just the leftover details~ Like shading and such~ I finished off the hair, in a low layer, so it won't go over the face of shoulders~ Now save your work~ Save it as an ai file.
STEP 9: Now, you can work on the background~ you can either do it in Illustrator, or go to photoshop. =D If you make your background in photoshop, make sure there is no background layer under your drawing, so that when you import it into photoshop, the picture will be transparent~ =D Now you can do your background, however you want.
