“PixelPerfect” shows you how to draw and color Manga in Photoshop

Bert Monroy is one of the world’s premier digital artists.  Using the Adobe Creative Suite (mostly Photoshop and Illustrator), he creates incredibly detailed scenes, “digital paintings” of a sort.  They look so incredibly lifelike – so much so that someone who is not familiar with Monroy’s works would call them photographs. They are not.  Every object in a Bert Monroy scene – be it a soda can, beer bottle, billboard, city skyline, whatever, is completely created by hand using the Adobe software – these are not digital photographs or scans.

Anyway, he hosts a show on the Revision3 IPTV network called PixelPerfect, in which he demonstrates and teaches his Photoshop and Illustrator techniques.  His latest episode features a tutorial on how, using Photoshop, you can draw and color manga characters, and turn them into a marquee-like biillboard.  You can watch the show on the Revision3 website or in the embedded player below. Or you can subscribe in iTunes or your favorite podcatcher of choice.

EDIT: Here is the earlier episode on colorizing Bert mentioned (link goes directly to that show’s page, or view the embedded version below).
