This is Felicia for the club I recently joined; 'The Darkstalkers'
I experimented here with coloured outlines, instead of the usual black.
Warning, this picture will make you ill if you look at it for two long.. such sickly colours *shudder*
Hi drew, i wanted to ask you a question and hope you don't mind helping me, i've been using photoshop for a while now, but can you please tell how you get those black lines(original linart) colored, like different line colors for her skin , hair, lip... i would really appreciate it if you could explain it to me, Thank you and i hope i'm not bothering with this
I've asked people that same question in the past, and the closest I came to an answer was to use 'Channels', something which my limited version of Photoshop does not feature..
however, I can tell you how I do it..
In the case of this Felicia picture, I 'inked' it digitaly, using the colours that you see here, so it never actualy had black outlines..
If I DO have a black out-lined drawing that I want to do this effect on, I will scan it as a B&W scan, (rather than greyscale) which keeps the borders of the lines crisp, and avoids any grey anti-aliasing effects, (which just make things harder later on) .. a high resolution scan is a must, as you don't want to lose the fine lines and details..
Then, it is simply a matter of using the 'magic wand' tool to select the outlines you want to change the colour of, then (preferably on a new layer), add the colours you want the lines to be with the pencil or paintbrush tool.
This is a pretty crude way to do it, but I have no idea how the pro's actualy acheive this effect, and haven't come across any deviants who know either!
But keep asking around, and if you do find out, let me know!
Thank you so much for your reply, it's weird that it might be a simple thing but just not easy to figure out, thank you for your time, i tried asking some other deviants, but thery seemed to ignore my question, i guess they don't like sharing the secret , i'll keep hunting for the answer, and you'll be the first to know buddy
Bright colour scheme. ^_^ She looks great thou CG wise. The shadows and highlights and line are are great. It is almost one of those so nicely done that she almost don't look Felishy-y. ^_^ They really do need to make a new darkstalkers game.
You know, something about the colour scheme makes me hungry for cotton candy.
The pose makes me want vagina, tho.
Verily, two great tastes that taste great together.
Excellent work on this. I like the pinuppy pose, and if I'm not too much mistaken this is the first time in awhile you've used a more standard composition that puts the character, literally front and centre. The colours are vibrant but not too annoying and fits the spirit of the piece. It's not a jokey piece, but it has a real sense of fun to it that I like. Excellent work!
You really do have a knack for taking cute and turning it into a mature-audience attractive. I can't say much, I'm a sucker for Felicia art. Very well done. Only complaint I might can cough up would be that the background is almost a little too...bland. It just doesn't do a whole lot, compared to some of your other more dynamic backgrounds. Excellent work, though.
Yeah, well I was originaly going to do a very basic background, but as I worked on it, I realised that it didn't realy need one.. it just needed a little colour to prevent the white of her 'costume' from getting lost in the negative space.. It's just a quick pin-up anyway..
I like the fact that "costume" had to go in quotation marks. Understandable...I had to throw something up as a background when I did a fanart of her a little while back. She does tend to get lost in her surroundings easily.
Normally I dont raise an eyebrow at people's works, not even my own. But I must say, for the first time I actually rival someone when it comes to drawing women. Its pimpin seeing another good cheesecake artist every once in a while.
