yesterday somebody asked me how i got the red-blue false 3D looking effect in the drawing of dipper that i posted, so I wanted to make a quick post about it in case anybody else didn’t know how!
first, you’re gonna want to condense the whole drawing (or at least, everything you want the effect on) to a single layer. then, duplicate that layer.
right click on the duplicated layer and select “blending options”; this window should pop up. what you’re looking for is the part i’ve circled—Advanced Blending.
uncheck any of the boxes and hit okay. Go in close and, with the move tool, move the top layer slightly in any direction—you should notice the off-color effect when you do. Unchecking R, G, or B should have different effects, depending on what colors are in your drawing. I normally only uncheck one at once.
This is incredibly helpful for making walking sprites.
Just want to post this so I can share it with other people.
all of my please and thank you’s
SOMEONE ASKED ME ABOUT MY BRUSH SETTINGS BUT MY OLD ONES ARE actually not that outdated because weep I’M A PERSON OF…HABIT BUT…. I couldn’t find the old ones so I MADE A NEW ONE!!!
thank you for asking I’m so sorry for the late response!!
A couple people asked me how I vary my leaves and trees and honestly, it’s super easy! I’ve never made a tutorial/guide before so I kept this mega simple but I hope someone out there might find it useful at least!
Also, anyone can download the brushes I use for all my art on my tumblr page (: I only use around 5 so go nuts haha
Wow! Reblogging this for reference. I gotta start drawing more backgrounds.
pah! my skin palettes are no where near perfect. I wish. D:
I’m not sure if this would be of help, but here’s sort of a quick step-by-step guide of sorts. also my main brushes I use + their settings. I literally just block colors and shapes in with my “paint” brush, blend them around some, and color drop. that’s it…haha.
