Do they have names?
Someday, you should make a video tutorial for novices like me.
Sorry for my bad English :c
I'm trying to see if I can actually get colors to work with my drawings, but when I do they look... strange to me. Like not what I've pictured in my head. And the way I see it: This drawing was line art, then colored. Will turning my sketches into line art help? And is there a way to incorporate colors and shadows with the drawings?
Sorry if this is too long for you to read, I just really want to draw how I do on paper on computer.
When painting something, find a colored picture with a color scheme that resembles what you want to paint, and sample the colors from it. That way you know that the colors that you use will work together (better that if you try to guess/pick them from the color palette).
As for the painting, try to fill in the colors with a broader brush (with pressure driven transparency) instead of a thin brush and a flood-fill.
If it helps you, then yes, make a non-colored version first, and add the colors later.
The important thing is that you have layers and basic blend modes for them (like multiply). It is also useful that you have enough options to set up the brushes - transparency and size driven by the pen pressure.
awesome great and all other words!!!
I tried to imitate the lineart-style from the MLP comic.
