Editorial Cartoon - The process - progress.

..friends and colleagues ask me to do a tutorial about doing illustrations - i post an editorial cartoon in the making! - not up to fully explanation tutorial but at least it could give you a bit clear pix about how i am doing it.

pencil sketch at first stage - done manually - using any brand of 2B pencil on A3 60gram paper. - paper that i slit from the printer! - at that very first stage i add depth - toning using 2B pencil - it's just like a guide for lighting actually

second stage - scan at 200 dpi and open in photoshop - adjust using LEVELS - play with this col feature till i got what i feel so good to clear all the dirt and to highlights...

third stage - apply dirt to make it more dramatic - i used to refer to soo many editorial cartoonist style - so this is the best style soo far that i believe it's cool to have a cartoon style like this to be publish in our very cool local english newspaper - New Straits Times! - the dirts and dark toning done in photoshop - using custom brush that you can downloads freely on net.
