Secrets of Corel Painter Experts: Dwayne Vance
3. In Figure 15.3, I fade the image back using the Opacity setting in the Layers palette. Then I create a new layer on top of the rough sketch to draw my clean drawing on.
4. I use a Wacom Cintiq to draw all my images so I can draw directly on the monitor. In Figure 15.4, I use my sweeps and French curves to clean up my lines on the car body. I do this by placing the templates directly on the monitor.
5. In Figure 15.5, I lay in my cleaned up wheels. Just as in the step before, I use ellipse guides and place them directly on the monitor to clean up the wheels.
6. To give my digital drawing a hand-drawn look, I use a gray marker to draw several strokes on a piece of paper. Next, I scan and import the image into Painter. See Figure 15.6.
Create a small custom brush palette for yourself by dragging the brush you want onto the canvas. You can continue to add brushes to the custom palette after it has been created.
7. In Figure 15.7, I change the color of the scanned marker strokes by using Effect, Tonal Control, Adjust Colors. I can change this to any color I would like; for this sketch, I decide I want it in the brown tones.
8. I place my brown marker strokes behind the cleaned up sketch to give it some instant texture. I also remove the rough sketch from underneath the clean sketch by turning off the layer; this way I still have my original sketch for reference. See Figure 15.8.
