This is awesome. I have a question though. How do you get the picture to have no lines in the end? What is your process..?

Vloth Featured By Owner May 21, 2012
You have the lines and paint on different layers, so that you paint on top of the lines, i.e. you cover them up. Just like in a real painting. :)

cool! um just wondering, do you take the colours from the reference picture or do you pick them out yourself?
Reply

Vloth Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2009
Thanks for asking, actually here I picked them with the eyedropper tool, but I wouldn't recomend it, you don't learn anything about colours that way. I have stopped to use that tool to make this kind of things, it feels bad. But then again, I have stopped tp paint like this. hah.

Nice tutorial.
Im a novice trying to learn Digital Painting so excuse my question.
When you paint those highlights, How do you Smoothen them together? Smudge ?? Or some other technique
Please Share
thanks

:iconvloth:
Vloth Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2009
Thank you! I usually do the highlights by picking a brighter colour and then apply it with a normal (or textured) brush at different opacitys and flow. I don't like the smudge tool that much, it looks rather bad in my opinion. If you have your opacity on a low percentage % and go over the place over and over again you'll notice that it becomes brighter the way you want it to. The same things goes with shadows. If you have any more questions, just ask! Sorry for the late reply btw.
