+Masks + Layers TUTORIAL+ by goku-no-baka +Masks + Layers TUTORIAL+ by goku-no-baka
Layers and masks are the most basic and well known things for advanced CG makers. Still they give a lot of trouble for people who are just getin started with using programs for digital drawings. I tried to explain in the simpliest way masks and layers here and i hope that everyone who do not know about them will understand <3


tutorial for lineart can be found here

Thank u. You're a genious ;p i knew layers but masks seemed pointless for me. now i think i know why they may help (sometimes when i use eraser too many times, the history is not enough & i cant get back to some stage and the drawing is ruined :P) question: what happens when you use other colours on masks? like grey or red

Thank you so much for this tutorial! I really hope that it will help me improve my drawings. I've had Adobe Photoshop since Christmas 07, and just started to use it (and slightly understand it) at the end of 08. VERY confusing when you don't have a clue what to do! So thanks again!

Um.. I have a question..

when I placed the 'skin' layer under the lineart.. and when I tried to color the skin layer, nothing appears there. But if I place the skin layer above the lineart, the coloring appears.

:O

Thanks for simplifying the idea of using Masks in PhotoShop. I never really thought about using them because I had no idea why it would be necessary, but this tutorial has opened eyes for me. And thanks again for making a tutorial!

Super ptit tuto , idéal pour apprendre

Je viens d'ouvrir un forum de graphisme :
" [link] "

Je voudrais savoir si il y avais moyen que tu vienne exposé un ou plusieurs petit tutos rien que pour communauté " ON-TOP-GEEZ " enfin de pouvoir aidé quelques personnes qui veulent apprendre le graphisme pour le plaisir.

J'ai des ambitions , avoir des tutos en tous genre et en grand nombres pour apprendre un max, mais aussi donné des cours des que la communauté sera un peux plus active. et bien d'autre , car mon projet est très sérieux

Pour faire cela il va falloir s'accroché et pas laché prise et c'est se que je vais faire , en éspérent que tu vienne sur le forum.
arnaud_87@hotmail.fr <= Si tu veux me contacté


PS : Merci d'avoir pris le temps de lire mon message et bonne continuation pour la suite. Amicalement , -No'- de On-Top-Geez
