Before you start.
Use these sample sketches or practice with your own.
Step 1: Sketch it out
Plant’s first step was creating variations of her initial drawing to show different states of motion and saving each variation as a separate file. Then she opened the first sketch in Photoshop and dragged the remaining files from her computer into the document, pressing return (or enter) to place each file onto its own layer. Next, she clicked on the Lock icon to unlock the original layer.
