  • First I start with a crappy sketch to give the client a general idea of where I'm going with the project
  • Then I draw the outline in pencil
  • I start gradually adding detail
  • Once the pencil part is done, I scan it in and clean up the edges with a white brush and make a few contrast adjustments with levels and exposure in photoshop.
  • Then I make a selection of my pencil and create a new layer underneath it and fill it with grey paint.
  • I then took a soft white brush and a soft black brush and added shadows and highlights to create more depth
  • I then added a gradient over all of it
  • I added a few more details like drips from the fingers and then used a small hard brush to create horizontal "static" lines
  • This is a Variant of the tshirt with the eyes open instead of closed.
