using ctrl + shift + c by sandara using ctrl + shift + c by sandara
Some people watching my video were curious as to how I managed to adjust a certain area of my image when the image is painted on many layers.

I do it using ctrl + shift + c.

Thank you so much.  I have been watching so many speedpaints and tutorials to find how other people accomplish this but not one of them explained this move.  Now that I think about it, it might be too obvious for those who are so used to PS to remember to explain the technique.

To avoid overdoing the selection, use the Ctrl Shift C command, then put the pointer over the underbase layers thumbnail (if you have one for the dragons head) and hold Alt + Shift then click. You'll notice your pointer turns into a select icon with a X in it. this means it'll only select the cross section between your over selection and the underbase.

LOL never knew this, cool! thanks alot, I used to use a recorded action of copying all layers and merging them, this is sooo much easier :happybounce:

Ah yes in fact it worked, but it's not the result I hoped for :XD: no way to really move all the layers alltogether of one part of the drawing, without copy/pasting over it ?

probably late, but I noticed messing with the layer setting might sometimes give the effect you want. (you know where it says normal in the scroll bar, just click one at the time until you find a good one, and you'll have it memorized for later :)

but can't you circumvent the downside by just hiding the backgrund for the operation?
