anonymous asked:

how do you get that "3D" effect on your art?

OK so you make your lineart


color lineart

now duplicate the lineart !

then ‘preserve opacity’ for the duplicates and set it to multiply

then for the duplicates, change the colors to these

now you get this 

then lower the opacity of the duplicate layers somewhere in 20-30%

then move those layers a bit like this

then merge the duplicate layers to the original lineart


all this new short haired ladybug art has got me like *heart eyes*
