Note that all the tutorials I put up are made for mouse users. :3 But, tablet users are also welcome to try.
I'm not very good at explaining/pointing out things but if you wish for me to explain certain parts further, feel free to say so. (:

Warning: This time, it's pretty big. XD ;;;

Is is a really, really good tutorial. And your lineart one, too! It's really, really helped my art a lot! Thank you! c:

Oh, but how to get the lines to have a brownish color at the begining? And why? Just for smoothing perpouses, I mean, to make the art go over better, or what? And how do you get it?

Sorry to ask. I'm just curious, and too stupid to figure it out myself xD

i learned how to change the line colors over here: [link]

it's another really good tutorial that also helped my art...somewhere in the middle it tells you how to change your lineart color, and by doing so, the colors seem softer ^^

hope that helps~

WarpHedgehog Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2008
I was just wondering. How do you get the color out of the areas where the color goes inside the hair area? That's the thing I have been wondering about but still can't figure out. Do you clean it up at the end ? If so how do you do it ? and Thx for the tutorial ^^ It helps a lot.

you put a layer about the skin color and paint over it on the new layer...thats what i do...

Example:

Hair layer

Skin layer

Lineart layer


(just to show you what i mean)

how do u erase the colors that are outside the lines? O_O
Reply
:iconmagicalmog:
Magicalmog Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2008
by using the erase tool? by creating layers separate from the line art, you can erase anything even going over the lines as long as its on a separate layer. Does that answer your question?? ^.^;

nanoSaby5 Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2008  Student Traditional Artist
for the original layer, everything is locked, try right clicking on the later and duplicating it ^^ that should let you play around with it ^^ just delete the original after you've duplicated it ^^
