Crispy's Process: Part 3 - Flats by Crispy-Gypsy Crispy's Process: Part 3 - Flats by Crispy-Gypsy
How I prepare my lines and how I flat. BIG BUTT FILE. AUGH.

Also I've been chipping away at this for a few days, so forgive me. I didn't do a complete step by step on the flats because I didn't think there was much to say. But I might've skipped over something you guys might need.

So if there are any questions about flatting or anything else in this tut, feel free to ask! I just hope it's being at least a little helpful.

That quickmask tip has saved me literally days <3

Should I wait avidly for Part IV or is it unlikely to arrive anytime soon? :P

haha it's unlikely to arrive anytime soon, sadly :c It's been started, but the laptop I was working on died's lost to the ages. Maybe I'll catch up on it some other time.

I am having a hard time making my lines color holders. I cannot find the linear burn tool?
Crispy-Gypsy Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2012  Student
It's not a tool, it's a layer mode. Check the layers window, and there should be a box that says "normal." You click on it, and a drop down menu should appear with a list of different choices (Normal, dissolve, darken, multiply, etc), you find "linear burn" and you set the layer onto that. I hope that makes sense!

Okay. Thank you.

I have never thought of doing the lines in a mask. That's something I"ll definitely try! I always find it hard to decide whether or not to keep the black lines in some places, and color in others. IDK,maybe it just has to do with how dark the outline is?
