If you’re like me, then you guys love shading your sketches or lineart. Like this:
But if you erase a bit and shade more with black on low opacity it’ll look all wonky so you use the color picker. Or hell you scan or take a photo of a drawing you made on paper. But then this happens if you wanna put color under it!
Oh no! Now I have to set it to multiply to color it in! And then I can’t color in the lineart! :(
Fret not, my dear friends! I found the solution! Go to [Edit] > [Convert brightness to opacity]
And suddenly you have this:
This way you don’t need to set the lineart to multiply and can color it in! It also works perfectly, if you use this nifty little trick on traditional drawings that you scanned.
I hope this helped you guys, because I sure as hell didn’t know about this until yesterday! ♥
