My second W.I.P, this time of

I was going to start work on my comic today but then suddenly remembered that I hadn't done this yet, so yep today I made this. I'll start on the comic but there will be a bit of a delay I guess XD

This was made on Photoshop CS5

If you have any questions, feel free to ask :) It might not be as good as my first one since there isn't so much to cover in this one, but still, here it is!

Do you not separate the lineart from the background?

This method has its flaws, and I've kinda refined the process now. In this piece I wanted to keep the paper texture, but now I've learned that it's perfectly fine to keep the lineart separate to everything else, and have textures on a new layer :> And also the texture shouldn't be so obvious and overbearing XD;

Though i would really appreciate if you might explain the layers part again, multiple layers or what not. Ive seen alot of techniques but im not sure about that one in particular. ^ again gw keep it up.

You can change the layer effect on any layer you make. Go to the layer tab, click on the layer you want to edit, then at the top of the tab is a drop down list called Layer Effect (trying to remember this cos I don't have Photoshop on this comp). The list has a load of effects you can play around with and one of them is Multiply which basically makes any white bits in the layer see-through. Changing the layer effect doesn't delete anything in the actual layer, it just plays around with the appearance. You can do some pretty cool things with it, so it's best just to explore it yourself. It works best if you have another layer under the layer you're playing with.

Personally I like to get a photo, then make a layer on top of that, fill it with at least one colour then scroll down through the Layer Effect list and see what funny colours the photo becomes :) I think its the best way to get to know this feature. Hope this helps!

well done. Knowledge is power, spread it.

This is fantastic, as per usual. I love Chloe's expression. :D

One correction: I think it should be 'every colour has ITS own layer', not THEIR. This is because it's colour singular.

Don't quote me*, but its feels more natural, somehow.

*Especially after what happened last time I corrected you... ^^;
