Note: I forgot to mention it, but after filling the path in step 4, you also need to delete the path! This is done by right clicking again and choosing "Delete Path".

2007-10-01 [Jitter]: Nifty :O

2007-10-01 [Triola]: Waah, I forgot to mention that you also need to delete your path! But most people get that, right? >.<

2007-10-01 [Linderel]: I r an art nub so I wouldn't. :P

2007-10-01 [Triola]: Meh, I'll add it below or something.

2007-10-01 [Linderel]: Well... I don't think this is even relevant for me, 'cause I only have Gimp and I don't know if it has something like that.
But it's good for tutorials to be thorough. :P

2007-10-01 [Triola]: I tried ;_; I just forgot

2007-10-01 [Linderel]: Awww. *snuggle*

2007-10-01 [Triola]: *nuzzle* it's hard making tutorials, 'cause it's so easy to forget steps when you're used to just doing it real quick >.<

2007-10-01 [Linderel]: You'll just have to slow down, then. :P Tutorials are about teaching people something, so you'll have to imagine you're talking to someone with little or no experience of the issue you're dealing with xP

Erm, by the way, could you remind me of that technique you use for getting the character as a larger version on the background? I've completely forgotten.

2007-10-01 [Triola]: Well, you flatten the character, then you duplicate the layer, then you make the underneath one bigger and lower the opacity of that layer :3

2007-10-01 [Zab]: Do you select the lineart in any special way? x) Cuz if I try with the want it won't select everything..
And... why are you doing it that way? O_o

2007-10-01 [Triola]: I choose the layer I want to select and click on 'select' and then 'load selection' :P

Uhm... I dunno... it just happened :P and I think my lines look better that way, more clean... fits better with the cell shading I usually do

2007-10-01 [Zab]: ''load selection''? O_o *never even noticed such option* Where is that?

XD fair enough. x)

2007-10-01 [Triola]: Well, you have like "File Edit Image Layer Select Filter etc" up on the bar on top, yeah? Under Select, waaay down on the list, there should be 'Load Selection'.

2007-10-01 [Zab]: oh..O_o ok..

2007-10-01 [Triola]: Am I making any sense here? :P

2007-10-01 [Zab]: probably, I havn't checked..XD

2007-10-03 [Jitter]: I used select colour and it worked like a charm :)

2007-10-03 [Triola]: Yes, that works as well ^_^ I used that before

2007-10-03 [Zab]: oh.. selekt colour? x) *feels like I never used PS before*
Can't there be a ctrl+M that means ''miracolously good picture'', where you write what you want to have done, and PS does it automatically? :D

2007-10-03 [Triola]: That's called commissioning ;)

2007-10-03 [Zab]: called what? Oo

2007-10-03 [Triola]: You know, a commission... when you ask an artist to paint this and that and then you pay them? :P

2007-10-03 [Zab]: XD but that's expencive..
