Coloring in photoshop - Part 1/3

Tutorial info is below - written steps explaining everything in the video.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Second Video (shading basics) here -

Third/Final Part Video (texturing) here -

----------------------------------------------------------------

Hi~

First, someone asked me about the line-art. The primary drawing, the line-art i've used, was done with hand drawn inking. Lires from deviantart made it. I make my own line-arts with the pen tool, it's exact and easy to use. It's easier than inking by hand like Lires did, but you gain that with experience which i think he does since he/she's awesome, so if you practice by hand, it'll be easier with time, for you too.

If you want to scan a drawing and use it to make a line-art, you scan it and import it to Photoshop where you use the Pen Tool, it's right above the Text Tool in the bar (left side of the program)

You make 2 dots with the mouse (pen tool selected), you press Ctrl+click for a third one (or more) in the middle of those dots (doesn't matter how far they are) and you pull them aside to make curves. it's really easy.
You just have to make an empty layer over your scanned sketch and make the line-art on it.
Just remember to make the brush the size you want the lines thickness to be like. For example, for really smooth, good lines, you should select a 2 or 3 pixels size brush in the brush panel, without any transparency on the sides (a hard brush).

---------------- Info about this video's progress --------------
Together we're going to learn a simple but good coloring technique in Adobe Photoshop.

Tutorial will be made out of 3 parts:

- Base coloring
- Shading
- Texturing

First, you should start with the lowest color, the one under the clothes.

You should choose a more neutral color so you can find darker and lighter color tones once you start shading.

You could paint the base for each part of the body and clothes and select each outside part to delete extra paint BUT that would be taking a lot of time and you would have to keep repeating it with each body/clothing part every time you add a new shade.

You shouldn't choose this version since, as you can see, it's simply time consuming and will probably bug you.

So, what should you do to make everything even easier? It's simple.

You can keep watching or just jump to minute 2.30 for how you should start, since this is all the progress without video cuts.

Select all the inside of your lineart over a Fill layer, preferably white.

To do this, go to Layer - New Fill Layer in the blue taskbar above.

Select around the outer lines (with the fill layer selected), inverse selection and delete everything outside leaving white only for your character and objects.

Select each body and clothing parts INDIVIDUALLY in that Fill Layer so you
can later use the Create Clipping Mask option on the color layers and shadows, without always having to cut out the extra paint on the edges.

This way, although it will take half an hour to cut all the pieces separately, you will only have to do it once and after that, use colors freely, without worrying that you'll go over the lines.

Make the cut layers offline so you can remember what else is still in need of being separated from the rest.

After you finish cutting the pieces, make an empty layer over
your flats and for each one, right click the empty layer, choose Create Clipping Mask and color on it over the piece.

Unless you want to watch the rest of the cutting in my video, i suggest you move on to the next Part, Shading.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Recently, i started drawing because i enjoy it and learning more programs is always a thrill for me.

I'm loving every second of video editing, drawing and animation programs and this is a video tutorial on how i colored one of my drawings so others can see the progress and maybe learn something, anything.

I've used the Sachi line-art from Lires on D.A. but you can also check out my own colored line-arts (fan-art but not only) or Naruto manga my deviantart account here:

annyaonweb.deviantart.com

I'm also taking commissions so if you're interested, there's more information on my D.A. page.

This is the First Part of my tutorial. There will be 3 steps:

1. Coloring basics - Easier and less time consuming techniques
2. Shading
3. Texturing & easy tricks to make everything cooler

Photoshop - Change the color of a line art sketch

Photoshop - How to change the color of a line art sketch

If you have a line drawing or a sketch which is drawn in pencil or pen, this video will show you how to change the color of the lines to another color of your choice. This is done with a fill layer and a blend mode - which you use will depend on the style of drawing and we'll look at a couple of sketches in this video. I will use one which is a pen drawing and one which is a sketchy pencil drawing.
The tool I am using for the color lets you change the color dynamically so you can do this at the same time you are viewing the results.
This video will help anyone who draws or sketches and who wants to work more flexibly with their image scans in Photoshop.

NQT Comic Page Process

Little video of the process of creating a page of my webcomic, Not Quite There.
Here is a general outline of the video:
-I started with the thumbnail of the page in photoshop and made a more detail sketch on top of it.
-From there I moved onto SAI and worked on the lineart.
-Then I went back into photoshop, copied and merged the lineart layer to make it easier to select areas, and laid down the flat colors.
-I then added shading, colored line art, and added effects.
-Then I worked on the lettering with the dialogue already written out from the script.
