    Water droplet for ByronC

    Okay, so it started off over here...http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums...ad.php?t=19175

    Foxytocin wanted to know how I did the water droplets Byroncallas said he'd like to see a demonstration, so here we are...


    You asked for it, you got it. Here's a tutorial on how to do water droplets, well, it's how I do them anyhow.
    Hope you like it.
    When I did the water droplets for my Crimson picture, I was working REAL close, zoomed in all the way. It makes a difference when you zoom out and look at the picture. For this tutorial, I did it the other way around, work big and then modify the layer to make it smaller. It seems to work either way. I'd suggest trying it small first, like I said it just seems easier, not so many pixels to deal with.
    I started with a blue background for this, it just makes it easier. If you were putting water droplets on a painting you would want to put them on a new layer to make all this easier and to ensure you don't mess up what you have already.

    Using my airbrush, I made a white dot for my highlight on the top. Then a black pencil to make the outline of where I would put the water drop.

    Next, select the background color using the color selector tool and lighten it up a little bit.

    Using your favorite drawing tool, start filling in your outline. I use pencil during all this, just because I find it suits my style and it's easy to smooth out.

    Now let's do some shading. I only used black and white for this. Once you start smudging it won't matter, it just all blends together.

    Keep adding black and white and then smudge with your pallet knife till you get something that looks like this.
