Uh, I don't have a "divide" mode. Do you know any other brush settings that might work?

Are you using GIMP?

It should be there. If not, you'll just have to experiment with the other modes.

@w@; No, I use Photoshop and no other mode works right. Guess I gotta go find another tutorial lol

I'm glad!

Also, I never thought about this until a friend of mine mentioned it, but if you ever do sketches in blue pencil and then ink over that, you can use the same technique. In case you were curious :)

I have some trouble drawing them, but I think stick figures would be best for me, tee hee. ;)
