More tablet experimentation – I am probably like one of 5 Americans that have seen Green Legend Ran, but I remember thinking it was pretty awesome as a kid. They had these alien-worshiping bishops that started turning into plants. This is a quick take on Aira, Ran’s “silver-haired maiden” counterpart.  Anyhow, I’m playing around with how to turn a scanned traditional sketch into digital tablet art.

Aira sketchThis was the original sketch. Annoyingly you can’t delete or really erase the background layer in Photoshop, which is what anything you scan opens as. But you can make a duplicate layer from the background and alter that and paint white over the original to hide it – ta da!

This was about a 3 minute digital overlay of part of the original sketch below. Being able to color without a mouse is a dream!
