~Don't wanna erase everything on the outside at the end? Use the magic tool to select your base color and color on top (´▽｀)~ I just got lazy lmao
I was asked to make a tutorial on how I color/shade on FireAlpaca, so here it is! The methods for coloring in FireAlpaca is so extremely limited, theres not much you can do besides cell shade, airbrush it, or do something with the pencil tool. This is a method of doing something with the pencil tool! DESPITE THE LOOKS AND ALL THE STEPS THIS WAY OF COLORING IS SUPER DUPER QUICK AND LAZY. I can color a whole piece with this method in about 1-3 hours (to me thats pretty fast ok I like detail). This isn't a method of blending btw, it's just piling on color and praying it works. Idk I don't blend lol
Tbh, I choose random colors, pencil tool it up, mess with the opacity, and slap it on. Then thats done and I choose a different color and repeat the process. SERIOUSLY SO EASY AND LOW EFFORT
FIREALPACA SUCKS WITH ITS BRUSHES. It literally has 3 brushes usable for coloring. DON'T USE AIRBRUSH I actually don't like the look of completely blended coloring (it reminds me of smudging ew) and it's really uncreative and basic imo (unless theres a way to make it not look like the stated? idk I haven't seen it) I prefer the look of lines and streaks; it's more realistic (and cooler looking)
This is my first tutorial so sorry if its jank or lame looking I kinda got lazy making it lmao. *edit* I typed it out! ayy
I actually watched a documentary on the American Prohibition. Man, interesting stuff. Believe it or not, some churches were opposed to the Prohibition of alcohol. Especially Catholics Kinda needed it for Communion.
Of course I'd be doing my drawing and I LOVE to dance (bet I can out-dance Ivy). I actually did some swing dancing in college and had a ball. I'd be a person of colour but I don't know how racism would translate with cats *scratches head*
Given the Bible student I am, if I were around back then, I'd probably be arguing with the two passages referenced. John 2 details Jesus turning water to wine. Psalm 114 describes how God gave us various things to enjoy, wine being one of them (proof it ain't grape juice; grape juice doesn't "gladden the heart" like wine does). So I wouldn't call it the "devil's drink." Like many things, it's the abuse thereof that's the problem.
People were even posing as ministers to traffic the alcohol. When I heard there were some black rabbis, I cracked up.
It's 12:30am and I just finished inking the most recent issue of Crikey Duck in Illustrator; we should have that up online for you within 24 hours. Here's a teaser - a panel of an exceptionally flirty Zakiya. If you click full-view you'll get a 300dpi version of this. Some of you guys have been asking for Color Me pages lately - if you're looking for something quick and simple, please feel free to take a crack at this one!
Her colors are all laid out over at Crikey Duck (www.crikeyduck.com); please take whatever liberties with clothing that you like. She persists in dressing in black which, while stylish, can also be quite BORING. Bad Kiya.
If you do choose to color this, please put the URL [link] on there somewhere. Thank you!
Staggering off to bed now. Tomorrow = comic. Also, I have a day off on Friday and that means I may be able to finish some of the 90%-complete pics that have been floating around on my computer of late. Oh, and I added more to the sketch I uploaded here yesterday. And I'm rambling again. Sleep. Sleep is good. x_x
