Flatting Tutorial

you will need:

1 copy of Photoshop and Patience.


I recently started the group #Flats-for-Colorists,
so I thought it might be a good Idea to make this as a simple guide to preparing and flatting Lineart for color.

Dj goh goh is property of :iconshwann:
lineart is by :iconcarlosgomezartist:

The flats for this image will be available in the :iconflats-for-colorists: gallery

first off i want say this tutorial is really helpful but do you have a tutorial for the next stage ? i want my colors to really pop out
Eddy-Swan-Colors's avatar
I don't think there will be one in the foreseeable future. I have too much on my plate. But the are likely plenty of other great tutorials out there by people other then me.

question how do you switch from lasso tool to polygonal lasso tool while doing flats?
Eddy-Swan-Colors's avatar
if you hold alt you can switch mid selection. otherwise you have to finish your selection and change using the main tool bar.
