Hi Xia great tutorial as usual, I have a question though. How do you scan in line work with a transparent background? I can't find an option to do so.
XIA said…
Change your scanned (line art) layer to Multiply or Overlay then paint underneath the layer. Then when you get to the half way, merge everything and paint on one layer.
