Just basically coloring your eyes okay, alright and do the hair just kind a blonde hair so then her hair is really soft and blonde soft color. I do not know in cartoon it is quite difficult and most people use a kind of yellow in color and so for blondes we will try and use a kind a yellow color and see what we come back with it just zoom out and I will do the hair. Put the pen size and brush size after quite a little bit because there is quite a lot of hair and there you go. Try not to worry about the background because it is really not important obviously just concentrate on the face and on the hair and the body parts and it is up to you if you want to do the background if you want but obviously the main feature is the face, okay. Dab a little bit more, And there we have it, we basically have a quite good picture there. And one thing, before you change the color, obviously you start with the skin and the lips, and the eyes.
When the color your working it first, once you first do it always zoom right in and try to see if this is in the missed parts I mean obviously you can see it there is few pixels here, obviously there is a few pixels over here that have been missed. Pixel there, pixel here and obviously what you have done is just go through whole thing and make sure you tied the whole thing up and you have not left any missing pixels that need to be colored in okay, because otherwise you picture is not done properly so to speak. As one thing you do need to take care of and making sure you do turns around and make sure all the pixels are colored in, okay alright. Just zoom out, okay and that is basically you know not too bad picture mostly if you want can have shape into a picture and so obviously with this color if you want to you can add a little bit shadow underneath her neck obviously make sure you get the right kind of darkness to it, what kind of color depending on the picture itself and do not go over kill it, every now and again if you want to if got the time to and change the brush size, and a line or something like that in certain parts of the face where we you can have the shadow you know, just things like that really.
Just small little details you know sometimes they work, sometimes they do not, okay the final touch to this if you do not want make a cartoon you cannot return in to pop-art. So if you want to do that just go to filter, sketch, half turn pattern, alright okay change the size to two, change the contrast to 50 and make sure that pattern dot is selected it is like okay and there you have it. You now have a pop-art picture, there you go. So good from is it, so you do not need to just make a cartoon, you can turn into a pop-art images as well. Now obviously if you are doing a pop-art image make sure you do only the skin first you know and they do the skin and add the half tone and then start coloring the rest of it because otherwise and I just show you an example here because I changed the eyes and I changed the lips and then I the other half as you can see I changed everything. It is different colors so obviously you can doing that pop-art make sure you can do the face skin color first then apply the half tone once you done that when you can change the rest of the image. So if I just get rid of that for a second you know. We are now back into our cartoon so yeah as a tutorial and if you have more questions and if you want to visit our website videoeffectsuniversity.com and please come into the forums, sign up and hopefully we will see you soon.
