For starters this is a tutorial on how to complete a digital painting from a illustration very quickly. My example is a background design layout. I chose to use Adobe Photoshop 6 but you can do this in version 6 or 7

Step 1

First scan in your drawing at 300 DPI. That is usually what I scan it in at. This makes it easier to paint later on because you can zoom in really far without getting nasty pixelation

Step 2

Next you want to crop your drawing the way you want it to be, I chose to crop mine like this

Step 3

Make a duplicate copy of your background layer by right clicking it and selecting duplicate layer

Step 4

Now delete your original background layer so all u have left is the copy
