xD Well, I've never actually been into it. Mostly because the anime art I see drawn by people is just the characters... Lately I've been watching some anime, and even though there's very little detail on the actual characters they make up for it with beautiful backgrounds, so I've been missing out on something there. I'm really getting into it.
I think I was watching... Midori no Hibi? I'm not sure, but LOL. . _.; The storylines are hilarious!
Excellent tutorial! One that actually explains "why" certain tools are used. Definitely one of the best I've run across, kudos!
I only have one question: when doing highlights, you use a lighter colour. What sort of layer do you use for the lighter colours? When I use a Multiply layer any colour that I use becomes darker or barely visible.
Well, a 'multiply' layer means that any colour that is lighter than the colour beneath won't show.. Unfortunately when I made this tutorial, I went all whack with the layers because I was fairly new.
The best way to do this would be to put your lineart on TOP of all your other layers, and have it set to multiply, that way only the black lineart itself will show up, and have all your other layers set to 'normal'.
