I got a bit sidetracked while coloring a commission (what else is new
), but for once, something good came out of it! Voila! The result of my procrastination is, in fact, a tutorial!
I've seen other tutorials about the lasso and wand selection method, as well as using clipping masks, but never one together. I've never seen one about using a clipping mask for this, though, either, which is exciting. I learned that from someone's comments on a brush pack, I think.
SO CONVENIENT. I don't always use this method for bigger, more detailed works, but when coloring in simple lineart, this really does save you a lot of time.
Give it a shot! Let me know if you have any questions, and I will be happy to try and answer them. Enjoy!Tools: MacBook, Wacom Graphire4 tablet, and Photoshop CS4.
