    Can you explain me Please how you moved the layers to right and then you could just color the peace of the caracter only? I mean the keys combination.
    Also those combination works for krita as well? Cause I use Krita

  • Paul Merzliakov
    Paul Merzliakov Month ago

    I'm having trouble doing this on Krita. the layer mask clipping works differently. you cant just join layers together you need to group them. so i cant do the thing where i make a layer locked to one single part Ei. the skin and just colour that in without going over the lines

    Oh Jazza, Would you share your tips on "How You Color Different Style of Character", maybe in digital coloring, or the value shading?
    I love this new episode of coloring. It looks really cool after you put some more effect stokes.
    It seems like the drawing this time different from the style you usually draw in video.

    I can manage very simple shading and colouring (similar to your basic anime/manga), but mostly anything more advanced I struggle with. But working in greyscale actually makes a lot of sense, 1. It saves time and 2. Helps those of us who struggle with colours (because there's a lot of them!!). Why didn't I never think of this before. Thanks for the video.

  • RATFather

    Serious question Jazza, why do you keep creating clipping masks for each layer when you could instead attain the same effect simply by locking the transparency of that layer? Am I missing something important?

    Thank you so much for this! It was hard for me to figure out how to blend my colours properly without using a soft airbrush or blur tool, but that just makes everything look too muddy. So the blending technique and also working in greyscale first really helps!

  • Ashley Smith
    Ashley Smith 5 months ago

    Would you say it would be better to color under a transparent line layer, or paint over-top of it with a multiply modifier on a new layer? I've been having great luck with using multiply and other modifiers with clipping masks so I'm jw if it's interchangeable- cuz It just feels so much more intuitive that way

  • Cherry

    What I want to know is how to change a character's color palette to blend in better with the background. If you pick out the color of Elsa's hair, skin, etc. from Let it Go, they are shades of purple, like the background. They don't appear that way, and it looks like her coloring is consistent, but it actually changes to match the background. I have no idea how to do that without making a character look like they actually turned purple... Lol.
