Beautiful digital coloring techniques for pencil art in Photoshop

Category: Illustration Effects

Marguerite Sauvage reveals how to use Photoshop to colour pencil-drawn artwork while still maintaining a handcrafted feel. Recently, French illustrator Marguerite Sauvage created a series of portraits called Flower Women, which she describes as “fashionable, traditional-looking, very feminine”. Here she takes us through the development of one of them, Sylvie.

Flower Women was a personal project and Marguerite says she was: “Totally free to experiment and play. I wanted to create not only a portrait but to tell a story. It’s possible to do this with only few details: like the fishes, the aquatic lines on her top or the vegetable of her head.”

Marguerite notes that every artist’s process is personal, but hopes that by showing how she develops her artwork, she can encourage you to try some of her techniques and add to what you do already. She’s also a big exponent of play during the creative process.
