I really like the idea of this drawing; it's very nice. I did my very first computer drawing following the dragon's eye tutorial (and realized it was really hard!!). Would you be so kind as to telling me what you think about it? Here its is: [link]
So, that's how lineart disappears? You can paint over it in the same layer OR save it in another one and paint in a new layer over it, so the sketch will little by little disappear as the whole picture blends with everything else...
This is so helpful at so many levels! Thanks for taking the time to do this tutorials
I'm curious, how do you go about choosing colors for the details in the BG? Do you draw colors that you've already blocked out? (then again, I don't know what colors you used for that either. Just a slightly darker color than the original gradient I'm assuming.)
Definitely one long awaiting tutorial and very well stated and detailed so that it's easy to follow along with! I thank you so much for the time it took to create this to enlighten some of us on how this magic is created! Very interesting and most excellent all around!
i usually do, but it's up to individual preference. making another normal layer on top of the lineart and painting on that will have no difference. (other than the fact that you still have your lineart below, safe and snug )
