I don't get what you did at the final part to make the lines appear all sharp and nice in the thumb there ?

niaro's avatar
simply the "smart sharpen" filter on photoshop!

Aww I don't have PS. So it doesn't exist in paint.net or SAI?

Just a quick question.

How do you import the texture in?

Copy/paste the texture onto your image.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ANSWERING AND YOU ARE SUCH A WONDERFUL PERSON FOR MAKING TUTORIALS TO HELP OUT PEOPLE <33

omg that sounds so rough FHFGHF YEE!! copy pasting is rly useful, taking screenshots of your references and pasting it into a diff sai file is useful too so you can have references in the same program~

wait, you fixed part of the sketch during lineart?!

How did you do that?! D:

I always completely define everything, then feel silly afterwards because it took me 3-4 hours to sketch, then lineart my picture. D:

this is so useful, normally tutorials start like half way when they've already neatened everything and are fully lined and planned. 
it's nice to know that great art does start a little messy.
i've always felt really bad that my drawings start and nothing more than scribbles.
and thought i'll never be great at drawing till i can draw perfectly from the get go.
but its really great to see each step of development.

How do you color the lineart?

On the lineart layer, check 'preserve opacity' and it will allow you to color over the lineart without changing the lines.
