Pop Art-inspired fashion illustration

Using dots to add tone and shading to your fashion illustrations is a fun and simple way of re-creating a 1950s Pop Art look.

At one time, creating these dots for printing was quite difficult but with today's design apps it's much easier. This tutorial will guide you through the initial steps of scanning your sketch, cleaning it up and adding colour to it using Photoshop. Resource files of dots, which you can use for your own illustrations, can be found in the support download.
