A quick freestyle photoshop rendering of a drill sketch. I cover a bunch of stuff and explain my approach to this kind of piece – working fast and keeping everything nice and simple to create something that still looks slick and professional.
The techniques sped through in this video are applicable to a wide range of rendering styles, but it’s still very strong: clean up your sketch, flood fill a layer with 50% grey then use a range of brushes, dynamically changing the size and hardness of those brushes, and switching between painting light and dark with a low opacity to build up the tone density. Then masking it out and using hue and saturation adjustment layers to control the different colours, in combination with adjustment layer masks. EASY. Have a look at the video, do try it yourself, and let me know in the comments how you go.
