In this tutorial we will learn how to create a full color beauty image from a pencil sketch that would be used for a fashion client or editorial. We will start by discussing how to source and create your own references and then move on to cover the use of layer modes, masking, and working with transparent color. By the end of this tutorial you will have learned how to simply color your pencil sketch and will have new skills to apply to other Photoshop projects.
