What is that type of effect called? o.o
I've been searching for this for months! :onfire:
And does this works on Paint tool Sai? :meow:

This is really cool. Just out of curiosity, did you draw the sketch on paper and scan it in? Or did you draw it with a tablet?

Step one: have artistic talent.
frankman1 Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2014
Yeah, because he was able to draw like that day one. Practice, stop looking at the word "talent" as a rule or even worse, an excuse.
warhead Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2014
Come off the high horse. ;] I was making a joke, not an excuse. Just because I don't fill my DA with my art does not mean I don't have something of my own to work on. ty.

I was unable to get step three to work. The individual lines were colored the background was. Do you know what went wrong?
MiCkIart14 Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
WOW, this look's extremely extremely helpful... I really must try this right now.! ^_^ a question though is opencanvas free? I would like to be able to follow everything.. thanks

This is an awesome tutorial! Very helpful! * u *
Miyori999 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I had to use SAI to finish it off because the coloring with gradients on mine fills the whole image even with screens and Normals (I don't have an option for standard, so I figured it's the same thing). But it still worked quite well. Thank you. [link]
AndyDuran Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Does this work if your line art is not uploaded, and you just used your tablet to make a sketch?

THEAIMANDPS Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
it doesn`t work with photoshop :(
P5hng-Me-AWy Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2012  Student Digital Artist
It should work with Photoshop, I just did it a while ago.
THEAIMANDPS Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
hmmm... thats strange what version do you have?
P5hng-Me-AWy Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I have CS4
THEAIMANDPS Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
i have version 7.0 so thats why it doesn't work in mine
P5hng-Me-AWy Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2012  Student Digital Artist
No, I don't think so. I think it should still work.

Here s small tutorial of the same thing I did for a friend.

1. )Open drawing/sketch in photoshop.

2.) After that make it black and white, (control+shit+U) for Windows or (command+shift+U) for Mac.

3.) Once it's black and white, mess with the levels of the drawing. (Control+L)for Windows or (command+L) for Mac. Try and only mess with the gray and and white arrows. Gray darkens the picture while white lighten it.

4.) Once you like it just hit enter and begin to clean it up using a white brush.

5.) After that make a new layer under your drawing/sketch. If you drawing/sketch is on the "background" layer, simply hit (control+A+control+X+control+V) for Windows or (command+A+command+X+command+V) for Mac to cut and paste the image into a new layer. Then make a new layer under that.

6.) Once you have a new layer go back to your drawing/sketch one and change the mode to "screen". Your drawing will disappear but don't worry it's okay! Also, try not to make my mistake and "screen" the blank layer. lol

7.) After that go back to your new and blank layer and full it with any gradient you like. and TADA!!!!! you are done. lol

8.) Also, it works any drawings that is black and white as well, just make sure that your drawing had a white background and not a transparent one.
