[Video] Partially use the blur tool to make the fill look attractive





It looks attractive if you use the partial blur tool when painting the character.
I will also explain the specific places to use and the parts that do not use the blur tool.


First, prepare for comfortable application.
Apply separate layers for each part.
Please also create a folder as shadows will be added.

Then, with the undercoat layer selected, tap [Selection from layer] → [Create selection]. Select a folder in that state and tap [Create Layer Mask].
Then the paint will not stick out.

↓ If you try removing the mask, it will look like this. It really sticks out.

[Clipping in the lower layer] Isn't it good? I understand your feelings.

But I also want to clip the shadows! This is sometimes a problem ...
For graffiti, clipping is often all that is needed, but if you want to apply it firmly, a layer mask is recommended.

I created a layer mask for the skin, clothes and hair folders.
(The pupil is painted by clipping, so it is not created.)

Brush introduction

Now, I would like to introduce four brushes that I mainly use this time.
The first is a sharp watercolor extension. It stretches the color nicely.

The extension method changes depending on the color extension value, so it is a good idea to use a value that you find easy to use.

Note that the touch will change depending on whether you move the brush from top to bottom or from bottom to top.

The second is the default blur tool. After painting, it blurs the outline and blends in uneven painting.

The blur range changes depending on the brush size. I personally recommend using it in a smaller size.

You can blur it firmly by tracing it many times.

The third is the one who played with opaque watercolor. This is the brush I mainly use. Please refer to it as it will appear in this course. ↓

The fourth is a self-made marker. I used it for hair painting. I made it by arranging a flat marker. We do not distribute it, so if you are interested, please create it with reference to the image.

1. Skin

Let's start painting. Here is the image below after performing the color tress of the line drawing. I'm really doing it in the middle of the work, but I didn't save the image in the middle, so I will proceed as it is. Don't worry, the line drawing is a little different for the same reason. Don't worry about the missing undercoat on your hair.

Apply the skin. Basically, when the color changes, or when the place to be painted is close, think that you are painting by creating a new layer. Paint a light shadow with opaque watercolor.

Blur the arm and collarbone with the blur tool to give a soft impression.

Paint the shadow with a dark color. I think it would be nice to paint small shadows with a round pen and large shadows with opaque watercolor.

Highlight with white. It's a good idea to work while looking at the rough. After painting with a round pen, use Sharp Watercolor Stretch to create a nice grade with a nice color stretch.

Dye the cheeks. After drawing with opaque watercolor, blur with [Filter] → [Blur] → [Gaussian blur]. If you blur it with a filter, you can blur it evenly and neatly.

Apply a light shadow to give the face a three-dimensional effect. This is also blurred in the same way as the cheeks. The shoulder part is superfluous, so erase it with an eraser. (Multiplication 13%)

The airbrush is stronger to give a more three-dimensional effect. Apply to the face (additional emission 57%), right side (additional emission 45%), and left side (additional emission 41%).

Draw a shy line with a round pen.

Paint the lips with opaque watercolor.

Paint your mouth with a round pen.

Opaque watercolor and blur give a three-dimensional effect to the chest.

Draw a light on the left side as well, and you're done.

2. Service

Next, I will paint the clothes. I mainly use opaque watercolors. Apply a very light shadow (62%). Blur a part.

Apply a slightly darker shadow.

I think it will be easier to paint if you make a selection with a quick mask. Let's erase the unnecessary part with a transparent color.

Apply the shadow of the chest. This also blurs a part.

Since it was flat, I added a white and bright part.

Fill the shadow with an image that has a switch on the chest (multiplication).

Paint the shadow (multiplication).

Use clipping on the layer you just created to remove the color with a lighter color.

Paint the back of the cloth. You can fill it here.

Use clipping to remove the color.

Apply a grade with a strong airbrush.

Apply fine wrinkles.

I think it's good to draw a dark line on the edge of the light shadow to make it sharper. Use a sharp watercolor to stretch a part.

Fill a part with a dark color by clipping.

Apply a light shadow.

By the way, I also remove the color on the back side.

Apply the shadow of the hair with a round pen (multiplication 64%).

Color the entire area with a multiplication layer to darken it (multiplication 13%).

Apply highlights. After painting, the extra part is erased with a layer mask.

Add a shadow.

Add a dark color to a part by clipping.

Add light to the left side as well.

Airbrush Apply strong and soft light (dodge color).

3. Hair

Paint your hair. Watermark with opaque watercolor.

Apply a light shadow. After painting with a self-made marker, spread the color with a sharp watercolor brush. I think it's good to reduce the opacity of the marker a little and use it to create a moderate amount of uneven coating.

Fill the watermark 2. After painting pink with opaque watercolor, blur the upper part to blend in. Then use the lock to paint the transparent pixels with a light orange. Use a stronger airbrush.

Fill the watermark 3. Apply a grade to the ends of the hair with opaque watercolor.

Apply a thin shadow with a self-made marker and a sharp watercolor brush (multiply 59%).

Apply gloss to the bangs. After drawing a line with a self-made marker, stretch the top and bottom with a sharp watercolor.

Apply a grade with a strong airbrush (burning color 60%).

Apply gloss with opaque watercolor.

After applying it, erase it with a transparent color. (The colors have been changed to make it easier to see.)

Apply a colorful luster. The color is painted by clipping.

Apply gloss and shadow. A self-made marker is used for gloss enhancement, and a round pen is used for thin shadows (multiplication).

Apply a dark shadow with a round pen and a sharp watercolor brush (multiplication).

Apply a thin luster with a self-made marker (multiplication).

Apply highlights.

Erase with a layer mask.

Add a shadow (multiplication).

Apply a grade with a strong airbrush.

Add a highlight.

I was a little unsatisfied, so I will add some hair. Create a layer below the hair fill layer. After painting with a round pen, paint shadows with clipping.

I think that drawing fine hair gives a soft and delicate impression.

Addition 3 creates a layer above the line drawing. I added to the bangs and shoulders.

Apply a dark color to the bangs.

4. Eyes

First, apply eyelashes. I will paint with clipping. Paint the edges with opaque watercolor.

Paint the center.

Draw with a round pen and opaque watercolor (burning color). Paint the edges with a round pen, paint the center with opaque watercolor, and then erase with a hard eraser.

Paint the center with a round pen and you're done.

Layer composition ↓

Paint your eyes. I will also paint this with clipping. Apply light using a round pen.

Paint a dark color.

Fill the shadow with opaque watercolor.

Apply glitter with a round pen.

Paint the edges (burning color).

Add a touch (burning color).

Fill the center with opaque watercolor (61%).

Makes the bottom shine (additional emission 41%).

Apply glitter with a round pen.

From here on, I will paint without clipping. Draw a line on the lower eyelid.

Glitter with a round pen (additive emission).

Add a line to the center with a round pen.

Glitter (additional emission 59%).

Further glitter (59%).

Glitter again.

Highlight with white. done.

Layer composition ↓

Apply white eyes. The shadows are painted with opaque watercolor.

5. Finish

Let's finish it. I wanted to make the color of the line drawing a little more familiar, so I did more color tressing.

I put a watermark on my eyes.

Take the color of the hair on your eyes with a dropper and apply it with clipping. Then lower the layer opacity and it will look transparent.

6. Processing

I will go into processing. Use a prism brush.

Change the layer to an overlay.

Apply Gaussian blur.

Since the color was partly dark, I made a layer mask and erased it softly with a strong airbrush.
