You heard it correctly.. time to become a ghost!
What we first need to do is open a new document and on a new layer start drawing.
Draw a round shape for Danny's head, a triangle for his body, and stripes for his arms and "tail". Finally some blocks as hands;
Since the previous thing was just a sketch, now start the real drawing!
Draw some hands and arms on the place of the blocks and lines;
Add a body to the whole picture and begin drawing his head;
Then with a little smaller pencil, start drawing his face. Let's make him look cool!
Now that we've sketched Danny, "roughly" color him. And when I say roughly, I mean roughly ;)
No cartoon without lines! This time use the pen-tool to trace the lines you've just sketched. That way you get perfect straight lines instead of sketchy ones.
Be aware that you *may* have to recolor something, but that's no problem right? This time, again, use a smaller brush for the face;
As you may have noticed earlier, I had hidden the sketch-lines. You can hide them as well, or throw them away, although I don't support that option, because you may need them later if you make a mistake.
Anyhow, now let's start with the eyes and teeth;
If you did the coloring correctly, you should have different layers with different colors. If you haven't done that yet, redo it ;)
Finished? Ok, *now* let's highlight! Every time you highlight an area, make a layer above the layer you want to highlight and press CTRL+G to group it.
Start brushing with a white brush over the hands and hair, then maybe even use a Gaussian Blur to top it off...
Do the same for the black area's, only now lower the opacity as well;
No highlighting-campaign complete without doing the face, so what are you waiting for? :D
What's that you say? Danny can't hear us? Maybe that's because we forgot to give him an ear;
Yeah, black eyebrows sure make him look much tougher and cooler!
Now use the pen-tool to draw a funny "tail"-shape at the beginning of Danny's waist;
Add an outer glow, or brush it behind the tail... your choice;
And then you're finally done. Congratulations! And have fun putting Danny is different positions! If you have some, email them to me ;)
