This is a ‘digital remake’ of a very old Merilyn Monroe sketch I did on paper once (16-Sep-1997 to be exact). The older one was done using pencil (5B) on paper. This one is done using the Wacom tablet in GIMP software (and without using a grid).
This is my 7 year old son – Dhruv
This is Fireboy Dhruv
I did this using the GIMP software. Following are the steps.
First I removed the background and added some ‘electric’ hues to the pants.
Then I added some fire to the hands.
Added some shades to the face …
Added some highlights on the face and clothes. These highlights are formed due to the fire light.
Added an ‘X’ on the chest for that superhero look.
And added the background, some final touches and we are done.
