Use A Photo Reference To Set The Scene

Use A Photo Reference To Set The Scene

Set the scene for your Manga artwork with a photo reference! Follow along with Diego to learn how you can take elements from a photo and incorporate them into your manga drawing to support and enhance the story your artwork is telling. Using our Smart Trace technology, project the photo provided on your drawing surface to add a motorcycle to the background of your scene, then perfect your visuals with color and detail as you receive technical guidance from the artist. The photo in this experience is provided by Gijs Coolen via Unsplash.
