How do you get your outlines in different colours? They seem to "melt" into the colours.  Awesome work :love:

I just picked the colors of the shaded artwork, made them darker and used them for the outlines.

I can't tell for sure, because I worked on it after work on several days.

How does the combining of the Local Layer (4) and the Shadow Layer (5) into one (6) work? I use a similar techinque, but I lose a lot of color intensity whit it...

i put the shadow layer on multiplay and then colorize the shadow layer using "hue/saturation". grey shadow makes everything look meh. you can even duplicate the shadow layer, colorize them differently and use masks etc.

this is great, how do you combine the shadow layer with the color layer?
bewareitbites's avatar
bewareitbitesProfessional Digital Artist
just putting it on multiply over the color layers. ^^
then i use hue/saturation to change the color of the shadow layer. grey looks bad, anything else works better: brownish, blueish, purple, .... depending on the scene.
