help with poses
my first of a set of six poses for Wolf Dancer. need to erase the smudges along the edge. but is it just my monitor or do my poses come out looking weird? like the outline somehow gets mooshed up and i use a size 8 micron pen for them too. =P pff how annoying. anyone got any tips or tricks?

I don't know if you've tried it before, but if you do some digital inking, you can control line weight and width easier than using the straight inklines. Once you're working on the computer, I've found it's best to work entirely with digital, unless you're specifically wanting to mix traditional and digital media together for a certain look.

I also don't know what size you work at, but usually doing the entire piece, then shrinking the image size to the appropriate Wolfhome size works very well.

Only tips I can give ya, but digital stuff is a minor forte of mine, so maybe trying it would help. Best of luck, Thorn. :)

Got a suggestion that works

Try either doing it while it is small, or sometimes I do it when its large, but then you would have to redo it...but anyways.

Take the magic wand tool, after all layers are merged, and select the surronding area that will become transparent on WH. Select Inverse the area, create a new layer under the merged layers of the pose. Then go up to Select>Modify>Expand by how ever many pixels you want to do. That will make the outline as thick as you want, now fill that area select with black on the new layer thats under the pose. And Vola! Instand outline :)

Now you can merge the layers, and make the BG transparent without it getting butchered. This is meant for Adobe...I don't know what you have. E-mail me if I get something wrong...or something.


Oh yeah...this is Chenneoue :p If you haven't guessed.

What size did you scan it in at? If you scan it in at about 500 pixels wide or something, and then color and resize, I think it should work a bit better.
