Step 1

with the help of the pencil tool size 1 we'll make the characters outline


Step 2

we'll color with the help of the fill tool and with the pencil cover the blank spaces



Step 3

time for shadows , with crayon thickness at 2 and darker colors we'll make the shades of the clothes


Step 4

to make the pass from the color to the shade look more uniform we'll use the blend tool


Step 5

after we finish with the shades depending on the texture of the clothes we'll add spots of light with the airbrush



Step 6

after we finish with the lights it's time to begin with the shoulders , the same method used with the clothes but you have to keep in mind that this are made from a tough material


Step 7

this time the white overtones are brighter


Step 8

if needed use the airbrush


Step 9

time for the skin


Step 10

the same as the clothes the same tools


Step 11

now the eyes, first we put black then a darker blue color , this time pencil on size 1


Step 12

again the blend tool


Step 13

we repeat step 11 and 12 two times but using brighter and brighter colors on smaller portions


Step 14

i let the hair close to the end because we'll have a lot to work on it, first we use crayon on thickness 1 with a darker color ( i chose a small thickness because after we'll use the blendind tool the effect would look almost realistic)


Step 15

and here it's the result of the blend tool


Step 16

now we'll add a darker color on smaller portions than the first time


Step 17

after we finish with the blend tool we put a lighter color


Step 18

we finished that part but something is not working, it doesn't look finished


Step 19

it's time for airbrush. use a darker colour first


Step 20

ofcourse in some places we'll have to use a biger tool


Step 21

and now the light


Step 22

i had to remake the outline because i kinda erased the first one


Step 23

for the background to not stay this way we'll search for the texture box


Step 24

from here we chose the texture for the background , i used the brush at size 28 and opacity 32


Step 25

and this texture but with different opacity


Step 26

and here is the final draw
