+how to paint digital 2+

And tutorial is finally finished. I firstly started to do this tutorial on November 2010, but then my hard disc crashed and I didn't do it... I'm a little glad that hard disc crashed, cuz this tutorial looks billion times better than old one. I'm glad because I decided to learn to program in Flash a little more so I did what I really wanted. The new tutorial I started to do at the end of June 2011 and I did it for 4 months. It was hard to program everything (especially to write the text, cuz I'm not a good writer), but I really wanted to finish it. In original tutorial I made even custom mouse cursor, but here on dA I deleted it, because I didn't want that your mouse works weird outside tutorial area :D In this tutorial you can find 14 different tutorials. In menu you'll find 3 different categories, like People, Background and Photoshop and there you can choose what you want to learn. This tutorial can be even useful for people who don't use Photoshop that much or they learn to use it. Happy learning (P.S. all drawings in this tutorial you can find in our gallery) :heart:

+How to use tutorial+

You probably already saw little buttons at the bottom of this tutorial. Simply just click on them with your mouse or cursor. You can move the pages with your keyboard buttons. Turn to the next page by clicking on the Right button and for the previous page click the Left button on your keyboard. If you want to return to the Menu just click the button that looks like home (it'll appear on the following pages). In this tutorial you can move things too. Movable things have pink symbol. Move them with your mouse cursor.

If you can't see the text in the tutorial very well, then you can click download button on this page and text will be bigger. But if you want to download this tutorial completely (because .swf file you can't save) you can click on thumb below.

Before I forgot to add a command CTRL+V in Photoshop menu (Making lineart from scanned picture), so now I fixed that and you can download correct version. I even added download button on tutorial, so you can click on it, and you'll be redirected to tutorial which is available for download (then just click in top right corner Download button).

Fantastic awesome tutorial, thank you so much for making and sharing this with everyone Daisy thank you Just learned a bunch of new things just by clicking through :D Thanks a lot again, you're awesome :)
This was an extremly helpful tutorial but I still have a few questions if you could spare some time to help. I converted to digital from traditional only recently so I dont know all things yet. Whenether I draw everything looks fat and I dont know how to thin?sharpen?soften it. I think you tried to explain in the tutorial that we have to use a soft brush for that yes? But then what colour should it be? Or should I retrace everything on a new layer? Would be grateful if answered.
Valentina-Remenar's avatar
Yes, I pretty much use default Photoshop Soft Round Pressure Opacity brush for everything. While it's on lower opacity and increased in size it's good for blending. If you don't know in what colors to shade you can paint your drawing in Black and White first (this is how I usually paint nowadays). And you can color it later using Overlay, Soft Light, Multiply... or whichever blending mode you decide to chose for adding colors over your B&W drawing. :D
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. That took me leaps and bounds. I can't express my gratitude in words that helped so much. Once again, amazing tutorial. Thanks for everything.

wow thank you so much for made this amazing tutorial! nwn but i have a problem ;-; i can't do the 3D effect, i can't move the channels 
Valentina-Remenar's avatar
Awww... thank you and it's my pleasure :hug: And if you want to move the channels, then be sure to do that on a merged file (which has only Background layer). It won't work if you have lots of layers. XD
