In this video, learn about drawing loose, dynamic sketches using media brushes.
- [Instructor] Let's take a look … at how we draw a character in Photoshop, … because, obviously, there are many different ways … we could do it. … I have found that there is a particular way … of layering a character that is really, really powerful. … Before we do that, we just open up a new image. … So go File, New. … And this will be pretty small, 1920 by 1080. … You can work in a higher res if you like, … I'm choosing this because that's a little faster … if you're working on a slower computer. … So let me just zoom in a bit, … hit Z on the keyboard and Scrubby Zoom in. … If you don't do it like that, … then you'll have to do it like this. … I like Scrubby Zoom, … and we can switch off Resize Windows To Fit now … because otherwise this window gets big and small … as we zoom in and out. … Let's go down here and you see this little folder, … click on that to make a new folder, … and this little plus icon beside it to make a new layer. … So let's rename group one to Character, … and we'll rename this to Gesture. …
