This is a scanned drawing. Usually I scan it with 600 DPI to have a larger size of the image
With the help of "Levels" (Image/ Adjustments / Levels) I adjust some contrast and make the background white. I also use Eraser Tool to clean the parts of the image, that I don't like.
Now the drawing is clean.
I would like to use this dog on different backgrounds, and for this I have to remove all the white part of the image.
I found a great tool "Magic eraser" what works perfectly in this case!
The eraser in one second took away all white! BUT!
When I chek the image on a dark background- it does not look nice....:(((((
After many different trials I have found a good solution!
I use black Color Overlay ( Layers /Layer Style/ Color overlay) to create nice black lines:
So looks the image after the adjustments:
Now I create separated layers and fill selected areas with white color, and I also use brushes for shadows.
All the layers have different opacity: 40-65%
Additing some white accents:
And here is how it looks like together with my drawing on a dark backgroound
As you see, I try to keep the drawing close to original as much as possible, additing just some shadows. Here is the drawing on a white background:
I switch off the background and save the image as a PNG file
And finaly some products with the finished image:
