Yes, I know... I'm early. But I was told to post it. :bucktooth:

Just a little colouring I was asked to do, using a line art template (which all of you will have access to soon), and who am I to refuse? :heart:

I set the line art layer to 'multiply' and painted underneath it, so the colours showed through the line art layer. Later I extracted the line art from the background and changed its colour, too.

How do you extract the line art from it's background?

Uh, that almost reqires a small tutorial...
But if you know Photoshop a little bit, here's how that goes:

You have your file open, then look for the 'Channels' window (you can open it by clicking 'Window' > 'Channels'. Make sure all channels are selected, then click that little icon at the bottom left that looks like a selection square. This will select the spaces around the line art. Now you need to go into 'Select' in the top menu bar, then 'Inverse' - this will select the lineart. Now you can copy it ('Edit' > 'Copy'), and then paste it into a new file, or that same file. Now you've extracted the line art. ^^

Thanks so much!
There are so many details in your lineart that I just had to try and do them justice. LOL
