My Entry In the PhotoShop Masters Group – Ivy lzzard

1: Tell me something about the image?

I created this a few years ago using this and a picture of a lizard for reference.
My whippets always reminded me of dragons.
As with most of my work I see the potential in a photo first and go from there although the finished piece often bears little or no resemblance to its source.

2: How did you create it? (you don’t have to give away any secrets)

I wish I had secrets to give away. I used a Wacom tablet and drew/painted it as I would traditional art, with the added advantage of layers and the eraser. The scales took forever.

3: What version of PhotoShop did you use?

I can’t remember. Maybe 5?

4: Any tips or tricks you would like to Share?

I usually work first in greys and then colour it later.

5: How did you go about learning PhotoShop?

I did the tutorial that came with version 2 and went from there, picking up things as I went along.
