50th Post!!


Tomorrow because it’s HD and took way to long to process I will annotate. But I used a combination of layer lock and clipping mask to make this digital painting. Most of the blending is a combination of painting with a lighter colour or using the smudge tool with a custom brush that I made. Tomorrow I will further update this post with better info but for now, enjoy what you can of this video.

I found this link that some may find helpful. It’s how to outline text in GIMP. The reason I am sharing this is because some of us don’t and can’t afford photoshop for that feature and if you make comic’s or manga, it’s something the becomes necessary when you need to put black text over a black background.

So through my daily deviantart rumaging I came across some tutorials. I need to get some inking done but I don’t have all the supplies yet. I am considering using the pen or path tool in GIMP. Usually I am opposed to using it but frankly, it hurts my hand after a while and it is quicker and the more flawless the lines the better the presentation. Unfortunately I wish to ink traditionally meaning good ol’ fashioned pen and paper or calligraphy pen and ink well in my case. Anyway, I found this great tutorial for it and I remembered to share it here with you guys ^^
