Hey everybody I just opened up my store with some of my personal artworks at zazzle.com, and all promotion would be very much appreciated! Soon, I will be sharing some different illustrations in cards. So please check out some of the ornaments and greeting cards among other Post card ideas. You can view and/or purchase my other illustrations at zazzle.com on my store Gallery.
I decided to paint a stuffed rabbit for this 2d painting tutorial . I am using Adobe Photoshop CS2, but I am sure most of this can be done on older versions as well. Join me as I take you for a quick demonstration of my painting process for “I want some flowers”. This tutorial is merely to act as a guide, and an explanation to my technique. I hope this will help at least someone out there, and that I can clearly explain everything in the simplest manner. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to create a detailed 2D illustration using standard Photoshop brushes. You’ll see how to create a concept sketch, a background, and then do gradual refinement on a painting to bring out the details. You’ll learn how to control and manage layers, as well as use blending modes to make visual details on compositions.

Preview of Final Results
Step 1: I started with some quick sketches about the main idea. And here is the sketch about my main environment for the character. This image actually started as a random sketch. I decided to paint a stuffed rabbit with orange as the color scheme and maybe some blues. After a quick search of my idea in sketches, I created a simple main sketch.
Step 2: Well, also I say when you have some spare time, it’s always nice to draw something for your own pleasure,I am sure you are agree with me. I like drawing different cute characters and toys for children. After reviewing some photos, references and pictures by other CG artists you can decide to paint a toy character .
Step 3: The idea was to picture a cute stuffed rabbit with a flower box. Once I’d defined the shape of the stuffed rabbit I spent some time on the colors things like the main colors and background color. Main sketch is very important because in the process of drawing you can fix things simply and painlessly, and get a clear vision of the image. Tell you the truth I started this concept sketch 3 month ago but unfortunately I couldn’t find the time to continue with the painting. Here is the half finished painting work. Not good.
Step 4: Then I start with opening a new document of around 997 pixels by 897 pixels with a resolution of 72px/inch. I began this image with a plain background in Photoshop onto which I splashed on some colors Well,if you ask why? it was because I don’t like working on plain-looking backgrounds. Adding a some varying color keeps me interested in an image and also helps me to achieve the desired mood with a bit more ease. I then created a new layer and started the sketch. I blocked in the colors with a large hard round brush and then roughly added detail with a smaller size of the same blocking brush. I also created a new layer for the hair, and roughly painted it in. It was at this point that I decided to leave it alone and forgot about it for a while.
Step 5: Coming back to it later, I decided to improve upon it, as I liked the direction it was taking. I further detailed it’s face and the body , using a small hard round brush and soft round brush to smooth it out as I went along. I also worked a little more on the flower and box, added some colors, and decided that I wanted the stuffed rabbit must have have a black eyes but I can change it later maybe it could be blue-blue eyes or it could be green eyes or brown eyes. Well, I do think the brown eyes really would be very proper for my stuffed rabbit.
Step 6: In the line art stage I created rough outlines for all of the final shapes. I want to change the main sketch now. This is another sketchwork of the last painting. I then moved on to the coloring process. In this case, I started working on the body and the head and then I leave painting the body I kept working on the head without starting on other parts of the image.
Step 7: Once I’d defined the shape of the stuffed rabbit I spent some time on the colors things like the main colours and background color. By now it was time to start the detailing the hair of the teddy bear. A little more work was done on the flowers, overlaying a texture to make its appearance a bit more interesting.
