More digital art experiments

7 Jan

The rabbit was created more or less by trial and error. There are three layers to it, a background, which also contains the cast shadow (to give the rabbit weight), and two layers with the rabbit. Those two layers started as one layer, which I duplicated. The bottom one I just blurred (and used a stencil to clean up the outer edges), while the top one got an India Ink treatment (a PS filter by Flaming Pear). I used the India Ink layer to create a stencil, which I used to clean up the edges of the blurred layers. The India Ink layer then got a multiplay layer mode.

I cheated a bit with the creation of the rabbit. I used a reference photo, which I also used as a tracing image. I only used the tracing image to fill out the shape; the innards were done with the reference photo.
