Okay, so we’ve all had it once that we scanned something in and wanted to make it transparent. LIke, removing the white from a lineart on white paper. For this you can set the layer on multiply or even use masking techniques.
In my case, I’m doing a water-coloured webcomic, and I wanted to remove the white, without damaging the colours. So that I could overlap the picture onto another and the colours would blend.
I was before messing around with masking techniques, but I had problem with keeping the colours right. I’ve now found a technique that’s a bit more easy, and which allows me to draw this:
What you need:
*A picture(scanned in or otherwise)
*A computer with the gimp installed.
My version of the gimp is Dutch, so I’ll be putting the english name of the steps in bold.
I’ve been practicing brush inking, and I have the feeling I’m getting somewhere. I got some nice winsor and newton brushes and I’m still happily experimenting with them. I also made a test page for Streets of Ganjet, to see if brush inked characters on a penned background, coloured in, would look good.
Unforetunatly the page ended up a bit skewed and I think I’ll have to become good friends with my mirror once I start doing future pages.
Ludology existensialistic lectures+KH obsession+Old comic book quote= This.
Basically, one of the old comicbooks I used to read, introduced me to the concept of listening with the heart.
Character 1: “You’re speaking a different language, yet I can understand you.”
Character 2: “That’s because I speak the language of the heart, a language that can be understood universally by all compassionate creatures.”
So yeah, the idea of understanding each other without using an in-between medium.
I got a new pen nib, and I had to get markers for school. And I figured I might as well try them out.
