Super quick tips for how I mess around in PS

Yep, my last post were traditional sketches colored digitally, and as it seems people keep asking how I do these kind of things, I’ll just explain my dumb tricks. /Keep an eye, romuliesky.

First off, the easiest way for coloring a traditional sketch would be this (I think it explains itself):

image

Oooor invert it: place the sketch layer above and set it to multiply, then color below.

The most handy way to play around is separating the line, which, I believe, can be done following hundreds of different tutorials you can find anywhere.

Anyway, if I’m to draw 100% digital (which I’m not really used to), I feel quite comfortable with Kyle Webster’s Chisel, both for sketching and doing final lines.

Here, I used Chisel for the first drawing and Rough Inker 3 (also by Kyle) for the second. But really, I do almost everything with Chisel.

When I do flat colors I use Chisel as well, but another tool of choice is a watercolor brush I found here (super cool resources tumblr).

And last thing I do a lot: new layer over the line, Ctrl+Alt+G. Sets a new layer that applies its content only to what’s below.

So yeah, those are pretty much my pilars. Nothing special. Hope at least it’s useful for some of you!

Sticking stuff to the sketchbook is so fun :’D

Also, I did a drawing for peachy-prince that kindly told me about some interesting places. Thank you! :>

There was a store called Raw Materials that had a variety of skulls and conserved animals. Posting this separatedly because of trigger warning.
