Digital Painting Tutorial of Pisces Zodiac in Photoshop

This is a digital painting tutorial done in Photoshop. I will briefly describe the steps involved in painting this Pisces zodiac girl art work.

  1. First I create the line art of the Pisces zodiac girl. The shape of breast can be hard to capture sometimes, that is why I have to draw out the nipple so that later on the bra will appear realistic enough.

  2. Then I fill in the color of her skin and add the bra based on the shape of the actual breast drawn previously.

  3. Next I fill in the base color for her head gear, ribbon and bra.

  4. Step 4 I add in some gradient so that the contour of her body will be more outstanding. I also add in the ripple and fish patterns on her gloves and butt.

  5. I changed her hair color so that it matches her skin and cloth color better. A Pisces tattoo is also added to the girl’s arm.

  6. More gradient and details are added in at this stage to make the girl look more realistic.

  7. Background and a nice frame is added to the artwork and highlight is added to enhance the metallic feel of the headgear.

  8. I changed the pattern frame to a more sophisticated one, it makes the whole digital artwork look more attractive.

  9. The last stage is very important because it involve design skill as well. I add the Chinese and English word of Pisces as part of the design. The dates of the zodiac are also added. This marks the completion of the digital painting of Pisces Zodiac Girl in Photoshop.
