Creating The Line Art

Step 1 Open your reference in Photoshop. Remember: Lichenstein’s art from the 60’s is the inspiration for today. So with that in mind it’s important to crop the photo to a close-up shot of the face. Use the Marquee Tool (M) to select a box around the woman’s face. Make sure to include her holding the phone so that it helps tell the story in the future.

Step 8 Create a New Group under the line art layer. In that group add a New Layer (Control-Shift-N) for the base of the skin colors. Using the Pen Tool (P), trace around the face and hand. Like before, Right-click to make a selection and fill that selection with a nude color (f9b88c).
