Hey everyone, here’s another painting tutorial—this time, I choose a cute mouse for you.
This mouse is so cute that he just took some cheese and ready to eat it while the house owner is looking at him in amusement.
Here is the final painting;
So, get your tools ready!
Start with a basic sketch. As usual, I use simple forms, like circles, rectangles, and so on.
Now, refine the sketch like so
It’s time to color it! I use Adobe Photoshop, but you can use your favorite graphic program.
Make sure that you create a new layer under your line art.
In this step, start with basic colors. You can start with the background as well, but I usually do it last.
Create a new layer between your lineart layer and color filled layer.
Flat paint the drawing with nice base colors, remember to paint this color on the new layer you just created.
You can always use more colors and, of course, play with the shade. If you want to, you can create a couple of new layers and color the elements of the drawing.
Refine the painting and hide or delete your line drawing. See the final painting before the first step.
