ART TIPS and TECHNIQUES ~ Digital Art from Colored Pencil Drawings

I first draw my subject matter with Prismacolor Pencils and then fill in the outlines with Art Markers. The next step is taking a Photograph of the work and uploading the finished piece into your computer editing program. I happen to use PhotoImpact 12. Once you get your artwork cut and pasted as a new image, use your photo editing tools to enhance your art. You can make your colors more vibrant, blend the colors together, warp your picture or add lighting. Whatever technique you choose will change your colored pencil drawing into a Digital Art Image, but be careful not to lose the prismacolor effect. In other words, only enhance your creation by touching it up without losing your colored pencil strokes.
