Coloring under your lineart is better than using the magic wand

...

1- Open your lineart:
And click on Image> Adjustments> Brightness/Contrast.



2- click ctrl+A > ctrl+x > ctrl+shift+n *for a new layer* fill the new layer black with paint bucket, now click on edit in quick mask mode and ctrl+v.... then click on edit in standard mode and hit delete..the one on ur keyboard >_<;



3- make another layer under layer 1 and now you can color under your lineart. x_x



The end.

^-^;

ctrl+v = paste

Using the magic wand is ok like, use the magic wand on the lineart layer, then coloring under the lineart layer.

but coloring on the same layer *lineart and color on the same layer* is wrong and makes the pic look like crap. Neutral

Whoah! This is sure a good tip, I always made a layer of my drawing, and than erased the white/sketchlines out of it with colour-range-select.

Problem is that with adjusting the contrast to high the lineart get kinda pixelated and less smooth....at least...that's always the problem that I encount when I use this option Uneasy

You can use image>adjustments>levels .. it's kinda like brightness and contrast ^_^ oh and u don't have to adjust the brightness and contrast high >_<

and here's a tip for the people who don't have a tablet, u can use the pen tool to make lineart it's way easier than just using the mouse ^_^

*I might make a tutorial bout how 2 use pen tool/ or how to use it 2 make lineart*

If you scan in lineart in solid black and white (not greyscale) at 300 dpi then you don't need to worry about meddling with brightness/contrast to get solid lines. You can colour it at the size it is to get print-quality artwork or shink it down for web-viewing without making it all pixely.

But in that case you would need strong black lines and no sketchy fuzzyness because the sketchy fuzzyness is sometimes mistaken by "not so good scanners" as black.....

My scanner is older than God and even it has an option to change the brightness/contrast to get rid of dull greys before you scan... and if you want solid black lines you should be inking your pictures and getting rid of the pencil anyway.

If you're talking about the faint lines you get in places you overworked after you erase the pencil, it's a lot tougher to get rid of those if you scan in colour or greyscale than it is in black and white.... or you could just switch to non-photo blue pencil for pictures you plan on inking.

No. You buy it. The only time it ever "comes with" is when you engage in certain illegal activities.

I know of another easier way to colour line art in Photoshop.

In the Layers window, you'll notice that there's a bar that says 'Lock', with four little buttons next to it.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v412/seismic-saffya/Artwork/WIP/dennisWIP.jpg

Click on the first one on the lineart layer - as highlighted in blue - looks like a little chequerboard - and it locks the transparency. It is indicated with a little padlock on the layer you just locked.

Then just pick a darker colour and brush over the lines, it makes it a lot easier than magic wanding.

This is the tuturial that I used to color lineart... http://www.tutorialized.com/tutorial/Coloring-Line-Art/8243

Might be a bit more complicated, but if you want more complex coloring, it helps keep all the layers organized.

well if you mean format thats were I come in (yeah first time hmmmmmm!) PNG is good but it takes a lot of space because it saves your image pixel by pixel every detail (yeah). JPEG is also good because it takes up very little space but it has very ugly resaults (well not really bad but not good for editing anymore and it will loss some deatail. kind of like a small blur effect) I don't liike it but. I think you'd be better off PNG unless space is a big problem. I think those two are worth it.

There is another method I used to use with scanned images. It involves clicking on the Channels tab and clicking on the button on the bottom of the window--"Load Selection". Then choose Select-->Inverse to select the lines and use the paint bucket to create it on a separate layer. You can do this with messier sketches and afford to color underneath them.
