Edit: ALSO IM HOLDING A TUMBLR ART GIVEAWAY FOR CHIBIS IF U WANNA TAKE A LOOK OR SOMETHING here : agent-lapin.tumblr.com/post/88… 

This is not a "how to draw and do cool shit" thing


I USE PAINT TOOL SAI
Please feel free to ask questions in the comments
, I'm not the best at explaining things because I do them a bit mindlessly, but I TRY HARD. Again, I'd like the remind that this is my own methods and this isnt like.... this isnt the only way to do things, and all the stuff I say is pretty much my opinion haha. I also toss terms around randomly and probably use them wrong.

I have also kept track of the time it took me in case anyone is interested. The TIME at the end of each part summarzies the time taken for that individual part, and not the time taken since the beginning (you would have to add them up for that). 
I hope you enjoy!

___________

III - REPAINTING

Three layers - the full image layer, hidden and untouched + full image layer being repainted on + hidden green lineart layer.

Tools - Various tools like airbrush or pen or things like that like.. the setting doesnt matter, or the tool type doesnt matter. Airbrush's settings are cosntantly changed on my part, notably opacity wise - as for the pen, I dont really care what tool I'm using for this aslong as it is leaving marks on the canvas. So dont fret over what tool to use and the like cause like really, it doesnt actually have that much difference whether you use 20% opacity or 40% if you know what you're doing / adapt it to the situation.

On the layer pannel, you have to shift click on the actual mini preview of the layer instead of the general layer;; this is what I mean:

gyazo.com/e97876e2f2c8f87d90b5…

where the red and blue squiggles are vs the text/info of the layer

hope that makes sense!

If you were to do a full backdrop, not just a frame, when it comes time for colouring and shading, do you think you would merge the backdrop with your lines and colours?

And thank you so much for this - it's really helped me so much! I used a lot of your techniques for this drawing!  I'm still working on being able to blend in my lines and such. :giggle:

Do you mean background? I think I would treat it like the person Im drawing like, I wouldnt keep it seperate, I would just merge everything together and when it comes to coloring, would treat it like how i treated the coloring of the hair behind the hand - duplicating the layer and then cleaning things up after

no problem! that nice~

Uhm... Okay, so this is an example of me turning my brain off unintentionally. I mentioned some of the words on this tutorial (with your username and the name of this deviation) in my Twitter without asking permission first. I apologize for not thinking ahead, and I'd like to know if you'd want me to remove my tweet? You can see it here if it concerns you. Thanks in advance~
Oh, and also, your art is really fascinating, I love it! Truly, I do. I'll try out this tutorial sooner or later.

Really fascinating.  It would never really occur to me to go over my outlines the way you do, but it has a nice look.  I do digital watercolor so my outlines tend to be very thin.  I also use masks like a mofo.

Depending where, some of my outlines are thinned out too, but generally they are pretty thick haha

The fact that you retrace the borders with a darker color reminds me a bit of pillow shading lol....only that its done the other way around...i dont know if you get me dont mind me!
But who cares when the outcome is awesome =w=

agent-lapin Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I get you! it could be some kind of 'pillow shading" thing, but i dont ever leave it at that since well...u no... pillow shading. 
I actually retrace the borders with a lighter color! or whatever color is surrounding it. It's to be able to draw the colors out for shading, and then cleaning it up to be lighter lines.

I've learned a lot from the entire process,
and am looking forward to the next one!
though, i'm having trouble with the bordering of the image!
I've been searching so long for a way to do that in SAI, but shift + clicking on my lineart layer doesn't work for me..
If you have time, could you maybe explain how you did that to me?
Sorry for the bother!

:iconagent-lapin:
agent-lapin Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You have to shift click on the layer, particularily on the little image, here: gyazo.com/d54af4628dc29ae0e7aa…  

if that doesnt work, you can use the rectangle selection tool to box out the image, then just ctrl + up; ctrl + down for it to select the image body. Hope that helps!

:iconkeesness:
Keesness Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Okay!
I tried, and shift + clicking doesn't work,
but i was able to select the image with the ctrl+up and down trick!
So i have the image body, but i'm not sure what to do with that?
like, just draw the border around it?

Thank you for very much for replying btw! <3

:iconagent-lapin:

If you go in that File/edit/etc area, there is a "selection" drop down menu thing, and there is, in it, an option to "expand by 1" - this is to grow your selection by one pixel. I just kind of bash that option until i get a thick enough border to my liking. There isnt any actual use of the border that I can think of but I guess it just makes things less harsh on my eyes, haha! 
OR you can just like, not select at all and draw the border around it manually too like you said, but that takes longer for me since I am pretty lazy haha

And no problem.

Bonsoir bonsoir !
Alors déjà j'ai un peu peur de faire partie des  "
This is not a "how to draw and do cool shit" thing" avec mon commentaire maintenant.
Bref, je crois comprendre comment tu as pu faire le beau lineart (car j'étais surtout curieuse de voir cela, après la peinture c'est de la peinture et... chacun sa méthode. J'adore tes couleurs d'ailleurs). 

Tu as donc dupliqué le line pour le garder au cas où tu te foires. Et tu as... fait fusionner le calque des couleurs pas finies avec le line ? Et ensuite tu as donc passé du brush par dessus pour qu'ils se fondent et deviennent plus épais ? Et comment fais-tu pour réussir à faire les couleurs en si peu de calques ? Tu zoomes beaucoup pour ne pas dépasser ? Je ne peux m'empêcher dans mes dessins d'avoir un milliards de calques pour chaque éléments "aplat-ombre en "multiply" x fois - quelques rehaussages avec overlay - et de la lumière avec "addition"-. Les calques s'accumulent vite du coup... Ce n'est pas trop compliqué de gérer de ta façon ou tu as toujours fonctionné ainsi ?

Bref, j'ai hate pour les prochaines parties~ Pardon du pavé ininteressant.
Good luck'

Ahh ne t'en fais pas, ce commentaire c'est surtout pour dire au gens que ce truc va pas les apprendre a dessiner ni rien, c'est plus un truc un peu informatif qu'autre chose! haha

Tu as tout correct sauf un truc - ce qui est dupliqué n'est pas le line, mais le calque avec le line et la couleur déja fusionée. comme ca, j'ai deux copies de l'image complet (couleurs + lines).
Je zoome pas mal durant tout le proces, et surtout, je pivote sans cesse la toile (ca c'est alt + espace). Le couleurs sont selectionnés moi même la plupart du temps, c'est pour ca que je n'ai pas beaucoup de calques. Au lieu d'utilised des layer modes genre overlay ou multiply, je les ajoute directement sur le layer par choix. En plus, je me perds quand il y en a trop  (plus de trois, ca commence a m'enerver haha). Si j'utilise des modes (ce que je fait apres toute la partie peinture), c'est plus pour fixer les couleurs et tout, et puis je les fusionne immediatement avec le calque principal pour ne pas avoir trop de calques ici et là. Je trouve ca beaucoup moins compliqué niveau gestion, apres, c'est peut etre plus compliqué selon la personne niveau colo puisque ca n depend pas autant des modes de calques. 
Sur la question de dépasser ou pas, je dépasse souvent les lignes mais je la redessine assez facilement (tout sur le meme calque). Ca me gene pas de recouvrire entierement une partie avec une couleur plate pour la refaire (je sais que c'est quelquechose que d'autres hesitent a faire, parcontre haha).

Ne t'en fais pas, c'était des questions intéressantes ! Merci

Merci de ta réponse ! Je comprends un petit peu mieux ta méthode de travail.

J'ai tenté cette méthode sur ma dernière illustration, pour une chouette pour être exact (comme j'avais terminé juste avant) et je dois bien avouer que ça change pas mal la manière d'approcher la couleur : c'est compliqué ! Et je ne pouvais m'empêcher de faire des calques au dessus multiply et addition pour rehausser, mais j'ai tenter à chaque fois de fusionner juste après (bon y'en a j'ai moralement pas réussi, on change pas les habitudes). Je pense que je vais tenter d'un petit peu mélanger ces méthodes avec ma colo, car j'apprécie vraiment beaucoup le line avec cette méthode ! 

Merci pour le "petit" walkthrough c:
