Inking Tutorial - Part I by Truro Inking Tutorial - Part I by Truro
Because my good friend got a tablet for her b-day, I am gonna do some tutorials, and thought I may as well share them with everyone.

I am not saying I am a fantastic colorist (meh, I almost always like the sketch better than the final product), but this is how I usually go about CGing my pictures. I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0, so if you have questions to ask, please look to see that you are using the same program as me, because it you aren't, then I am totally unable to help you. Other than that, ask away with questions, but I would prefer if any questions were PMed to me, instead of commented ^^

Okay, thats all. Enjoy!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!!!!!!!!!!11!!!11111!!!1! :glomp:

I've been looking for a good tut for inking in Photoshop Elements. I started a comic, and ended up having to work with all kinds of different styles with it, and I only knew one way to ink. Thank you so dang much.

You dont have to get rid of it - you just set the white layer to 100% and then the sketch disappears from vision.

MY GOD I LOVE YOU, it is near impossible to find anything that tells you how to ink on Elements (mainly because elements is a crap program) I LOVE YOU

You're welcome ^^

This tutorial is also getting kinda outdated. I'll let you know, that if you make sure the lines arent broken, you can use the magic wand to also outline the entire figure and finish faster.

But play around with it and figure it out ^^ It's fun!

Hmm... I did find one photo-manip thing once, I'll try to dig it up for you.

Other than that, I guess try to look them up on a search engine. *shrug*

Lucky you, you get to use photoshop in school.

(btw, if you're here, get on AIM)
