I then added a new layer and used the paint brush tool to go round my drawing in black, I did this in a new layer so my original piece stayed the same I could also get rid of any errors and pencil marks if I used a separate layer. I then used a new layer and used the paint bucket tool to fill in my drawing this was quick and easy and give me a simple outcome.
I also duplicated my outline layer and added black inside the image and made a red outline, this was the outcome for the fire I used a gradient I don’t think this looks effective at all as it doesn’t look like fire but I added I didn’t edit any further as I didn’t like the image
I used the paint bucket tool again and used different shades of purple I did this by filling the dragon with complete purple and then using the colour picket to darken the purple slightly. I then found a video on youtube which helped me learn how to shade I started off by creating a new layer and using this to fill in the inside of the dragon I started off with the tail I filled this completely with light green and then made it darker.
This is my image completely filled in and shaded.I then got rid of any unwanted areas on the outside and went around my shading to get it as perfect as I could. As I had also did this image in the same document as my other experiments i used the marquee tool to select all of the image and copy it into a new document. I then saved this as its own file in Photoshop.
This is my image opened as a JPEG with no background. To experiment further I added a dark blue background and used the colour picker tool to use a blue which was slightly brighter I then used the star brush and added stars, I also made the brush to size 300 and added a moon I like this brush as on the outside it gave a glowing effect.
Considering this was my first time using photoshop to completely do an image and learning how to shade i think my outcome is professional I am going to show this piece of work in my sketchbook. This has helped me understand Adobe Photoshop further and develop my skills in using the software
