Materi Ekskul Desain Grafis Semester 1

Alhamdullilah wasyukurillah akhirnya saya bisa mengumpulkan semua materi desin grafis untuk Sekolah Dasar semester 1.

Materi ini berdasarkan dari semua materi yang saya ajarkan di Sekolah Dasar Tanah Tingal, materi ini berupakan materi yang bersifat praktikal karena langsung dapat dikerjakan tanpa harus mendalami fungsi-fungsi dan fitur dari software yang digunakan, sengaja dibuat demikian karena yang saya ajarkan adalah siswa-siswa SD yang lebih tertarik jika saya langsung memberikan materi yang langsung tampak hasilnya.

Digital painting from a pencil sketch

As an amateur and self-taught painter (I don’t like to call myself an artist) I always find it’s hard to adapt with graphic tablet, although I knew I have to get use to it if I want to make some nice digital drawings.

Fortunately, from David Revoy’s blog, there’s an article about how to turn my pencil sketch into digital drawing with some easy steps, all I need are :

  • Gimp ( I got the latest version ; 2.8.4)
  • G’MIC plugin
  • MyPaint, and Krita (optional)

And so I made this sketch, and uploaded into my computer with using my pocket camera, it would be better if I can use a scanner, but I don’t have it, but nevermind it.

First, open it with Gimp, choose from menu : Colors – Level , and adjust some setting just like in the picture below, to make the paper more white and the pencil sketch darker.

And then , open G’MIC plugin, and choose filter “PhotoComix Smoothing” , it’s at Testing – PhotoComix – PhotoComix Smoothing , ( if you don’t have it, maybe you have to update your G’MIC plugin first ) Just leave the setting as the default, the purpose of using this filter is to make the sketch look more smooth without loosing its sharpness.

To remove the paper from pencil sketch and make drawing transparent, choose Colors – Color to Alpha , and press OK.

Now, as the picture has turned transparent, Add New Layer with Layer Fill Type : White, and put that new layer in the bottom of the sketch layer.

Before I started to color my sketch, I change the layer mode into “Multiply” so the sketch line will more visible after I color it.

And I saved this picture with .ora (open raster file) so it can be opened in MyPaint.

At David Revoy’s blog , he used Krita to colored his drawing, I wish I can do that too, as I believe Krita is the most powerful digital software at this moment,  but I already enjoy using MyPaint, so here I just use MyPaint to color my sketch with only one layer !

What I love about MyPaint is it has very simple interface, so I can draw easily without any disturbance, and here I used Devaad Mixbrush (it called Deevad since it was made by Deevad, off course, hehehee ) I only use one layer to color this, but it would be much better if there are more layers, because using more layers will create a more realistic painting.

So this is the final result :
