[How to apply one pattern on the skin or cloth]
Have you ever had a problem with your decorated skin or how to apply your clothes?
It is difficult to paint in different colors on the same surface. If you make different colors and paint them, they will rattle.
It doesn't look like the color you expected to cast shadows by multiplication! !!
Ah, I would like to solve the problem of what to do this time.
[2 How to apply]
1. Take a line drawing
Take a line art the way you like.
(I use vector layer + line width correction to take line art.)
2. Separate colors where you want to separate colors, textures, and distances
Color-code the parts that have different structures such as skin and clothes and the parts that you want to paint according to the depth of your hands.
Decide the starting point and rotate the circle of hues. If you decide on a rule to change the brightness or saturation after going around, it will be difficult to get color cast.
3. Make the color-coded layer the reference layer.
Just press a button like the lighthouse mark above the layer.
If you see a lighthouse-like mark on the left, you are successful.
4, Create a new layer + solid color fill + color with clipping mask.
The purpose is to notice the unpainted part when leaving the color.
5, Select with the reference layer selection tool and place the color with fill
There is no reference layer selection tool! For those who say, check the multiple references in the tool properties of the normal selection tool, and make sure that only the reference layer of the multiple references has changed color.
Now you can paint by referring to the difference in color of the color-coded layer.
"Get the selection from the reference layer-> fill" Repeat to complete the layer with the unique color.
6, Duplicate the layer and convert it to the shadow color.
Duplicate the layer of the unique color and create the shadow color by using the reference layer selection + hue, lightness, and again.
The point is to adjust the saturation while slightly lowering the brightness from the original color and shifting the hue toward bluish.
Fill everything with the shadow color once.
7. Make a light and dark shape using a layer mask.
If you want to draw in the order of shadow → bright place, draw on the layer mask using the eraser as it is
If you want to draw in the order of bright place → shadow, erase everything with a large eraser and then draw a shadow with a brush.
Blur expression can be done by blurring the drawing of the layer mask.
If you use this method, you can apply even in different colors on the same surface without worrying about uneven coating.
Also, if you use the reference layer selection, you can draw only the part where you want to change the texture.
The shadow color can also be changed by selecting the reference layer.
8. Repeat this to create layers such as 2 shadows, 3 shadows, highlights, etc. and draw.
When drawing highlights or light that increase the brightness from the unique color, it is important to adjust the saturation while brightening the brightness and shifting the hue toward yellow, as opposed to shadows.
[3 When there is a very fine pattern]
For very fine patterns, paste the pattern material by mesh deformation.
Materials are used for fine patterns that are very difficult to draw by hand.
1, download the material
-Access CLIP STUDIO ASSETS and find the material of the pattern.
This time I used this pattern.
(Pattern 1-5 (문양 1-5))
There are other materials, so please download them from any location.
2, pasting of material
-Paste the material on the canvas.
The introduction method and required processing differ depending on the material.
You can use any hand, so it's okay if the layer has a transparent material on top.
3, Make it follow the curved surface by deforming the mesh
You can use mesh deformation to paste a natural pattern along a curved surface.
However, anti-aliasing (blurring process to make the border of the pixel look smooth) is included and the reference layer selection does not work well.
So I'm doing this different process.
4, Make a folder and put the material in it.
Create a layer + clipping mask and shadow color on the put material.
This will prevent the drawing from sticking out of the pattern.
5. Copy the layer mask with Alt + drag and match the light and dark shapes.
With this, even complicated patterns can be drawn without losing the shape of the original paint.
If the shadow of the original shape is modified, copy the layer mask again.
6. Repeat this to create layers such as 2 shadows, 3 shadows, highlights, etc. and draw.
If the texture is different, add more.
● This completes how to apply when a fine pattern is included.
[4 adjustments and completion]
After that, let's add effects such as reflected light and aerial perspective as you like.
As a bonus, the part of the pattern was made to emit light.
This is the end.
