Illustrator Oscar Giménez shares a set of pencils with the Domestika community that will improve your Photoshop portraits considerably
With 13 years of experience in illustration, Oscar Giménez (@oscargimenez) is passionate about music and the world of graphics; he combines these areas in his work, playing with different elements so that each of his pieces stand out. In recent years, he has specialized in portraiture in his personal project for concert illustrations compiled in the book Sold Out. He also often contributes to Yorokobu Magazine’s biweekly 'Rock n' Draw’ section in which he creates music-inspired portraits.
He takes the essence of his characters from photos and other references and then transforms them into something totally different. His talent has secured him clients like Adobe, Playboy, Universal Music, Rolling Stone and Audi, and he has done everything from press pictures, TV and advertising, to murals, book and album covers, and posters.
In a bid to share his knowledge and encourage new portrait artists, Oscar is giving out these Photoshop pencils to the Domestika community for free. They are the same he created for the course Portrait Illustrated with Photoshop. These tools will help you with basic composition and strokes, as well as practice various shading and coloring techniques.
This free download is available until 3rd of February. If you want them after that date, you can sign up to the Domestika course 'Portrait Illustrated with Photoshop' by Oscar Giménez. It offers a great opportunity to learn the basics of composition, pencils, tracing, shading, coloring, and retouching, as well as how to illustrate in this unique style.
