Greetings poeple, Average bored dude here, so you may know that
and myself have decided to make a tutorial series for beginners in FNaF editing, as you can probably guess by the title. Another thing you can guess is that this one is about COLOURS
Also my uncultured mind is too used to Paint.NET to consider any other program and so you might have to adapt if you're not using it.
And I forgot but here's the first one about breaking things (that means withering for the 3 on the back that didn't get it):
Fnaf editting 101 #1: WitheringHey gais, it's yo boi, Endie! I've seen a lot of hate on some content creators since they claim the artworks to be "cringy", and that the creator "doesn't know how to edit". Don't get me wrong, there are tons of bad editors, who doesn't improve, tobe fair... So me, :iconTheRealBoredDrawer: and :iconNormalFnafFan: have all decided to make a series of of tutorials and tips for beginners! (though our advices won't perfect since we aren't professionals) And also keep in mind that this is just how I personally do this. Others have their own ways.
Oh okay, so Mr.lazyassboreddrawer was able to stand up and do something productive for once, this has led to the creation of the second part, as you can see
(Not kidding though, amazing tutorial, check that one out, it might not be as horrible as this one)
In the first part, I will guide you through the painful precess of making custom withering for your edit, so get ready!
Mistakes I see a lot
The obvious things not to do
Yeah, don't do that, don't just colour it assuming everything is the same exact colour, or that nobody should care about contrast and please don't just use the brush and call it a day, it's bad. (Also 30 seconds edits 2 : Mistake Boogaloo)
How to: Average Joe's Colouring
So as you might've guess there's more than one way of colouring, so I'll just mention ones that I know of, you might want to experiment around with ways to do it.
So an easy way to colour something is start off of a base colour so it doesn't look too horrible, there's multiples ways to do so, of course. One way to do it is to use the filter you see on every other camera; the SEPIA FILTER
Btw if you use sepia, take in mind that it's quite at a low saturation so you might want to up it quite a bit.
Also another way to get a base colour would be by using the curve tool, I think.
Then after that you can just mess with the hue, saturation and other things.
Another thing to note is that when colouring something yellow a lot of poeple tend to make it too much towards a greenish colour so don't hasitate making it a bit more orange
And when colouring something White, Black or something like that, since it's pretty rare for something to be completly colourless, it would be an interesting idea to a little bit of colour like red or blue in the mix somewhere.
Hooray, now you can colour like an average Joe.
How to: Coloured lighting
Now for coloured lighting, which might be the only reason your reading this. It's relatively simple but it is a bit time consuming I guess. (Or is it ? HMMMMMMMMMMMMM)
First you might want to know where all the lights are. If you aren't makingup your own lighting, a good way to find it is too take it from a black or white surface (like a nose or something), you also might want to brighten it up if needed.
Also here's an example of lighting, I guess
Anyways when you found your things, it's time to apply it to the rest of your edit or whatever it is that your doing. To do that you're going to want to take the brush and make it as blurry as possible and take the colour to use making it fairly transparent.
And that's it, I think, so the conclusion has to be here, I guess.
Hope it was undemonstrative enough.
