How To: Recycle a sketch book drawing into a finished drawing

Recycle a sketch book drawing into a finished drawing

An instructional video by tradigital artist Merrill Kazanjian.

Step 1- Scan the image

Step 2- Open the scanned image in Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop and cut out your favorite part. In this instance, I chose the head of the closest character. I liked the face that I drew, but I decided to change the hairstyle. I always liked NBA all star Ben Wallace's hair so I will use the digital scissor to cut it out.

Step 3- Print

Step 4- I use illustration markers and color pencils to give my old drawing a new look. For this image, I have combined traditional and digital media over an old pencil sketch. The sketchbook that it was in was taking up space in my studio and I hadn't looked at it for years.

Step 5- Finish the figure digitally
