Tutorial- Separating Line art by AstroZerk Tutorial- Separating Line art by AstroZerk
My 1st tutorial! I decided to take advantage of my latest deviation and screen capped a shit load of what I was doing lol.

This is For separating Line art from background art to making coloring easier. Other people use Multiply to color their pictures without messing up the line art which is fine, but I use this technique specifically for when I color line art which is another tutorial I'm gonna post up later.

Coming Up:
Cel shading my way-
Colored lines-
Metals-

The character being used is from left 4 dead and owned by Valve
But I drew him here XP

I must be missing something. When I get to the new layer bit and try to alt + backspace my artwork appears but inverted(white lines with black background) I think the issue is in the step about getting just your lineart selected. I hold ctrl and click the screen but it doesn't select my pencil lines. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. BTW great tutorial, clear and concise(despite my inability to make it work)

This would be a great tutorial if I didn't have to wade through all the extra little comments and remarks throughout.

OMG I love you for making this!! I always make my line art with photoshop on a new layer but this time I accidentally made it on my background layer . I didn't notice it so did some other stuff and then I couldn't take enough steps backword to fix it. Thank you thank you thank you!! :la:
