I figure if Gaiman can return to Sandman after a couple decades off, maybe with enough time I’ll want to return to LPFOS. So I don’t want to wrap up the ending too tightly. But right now, I have a huge cast, all of Janet’s enemies are gone, Penny is a god. At this particular time, I can’t do much more. I just wish I’d realized that a few months ago instead of a couple weeks ago.
cmacmac asked you: How do you make the gradations of color in your line art? It is very pretty. (and if you do it in artrage is it possible to do something similar in photoshop?)
I do it in Photoshop. You actually can do something similar in ArtRage too. But I’ll show the PS version.
So, you draw your lines.
Then you click the “lock transparent pixels” button in the layers panel.
Then you use the gradient tool and drag it around on the lineart. It’ll only effect the areas that already have pixels.
I used to use layer masks for it, but this is simpler and faster.
I hope I didn’t ruin all the magic. I’m sure all of you were here because of my gradient lines and now you have lost interest. What have I done?!
