[Zardra]'s Layer mask tutorial
this covers the basics about the masks and how to use them. I might add something here if I remember and figure something out... PS is such a diverse program, you can make sooo many things with it that its difficult to start explaining.

Again, some people might use the layers completely differently, this is just the way I use them and have found the most useful to do so ^_^


the finished pic... I know Sajore's hand is still wrong, I'm just very lazy! =P

2005-12-10 [Zardra]: oh, I forgot to add to this that if you use the Lasso Tool, you can choose more areas by pressing Shift when clicking the mouse and remove selected areas by pressing Alt... that helps a lot, you dont have to choose the whole area at once and you can clean the selection later on ^_^

2005-12-11 [Ocean Soul]: Nice tutorial, I bet it was quite a lot of work =) I just noticed, that the guy's hand (the one on his chest) is like.. uhm, a left hand on a right arm or something ;) But as for the rest, very nice *two thumbs up* :)

2005-12-11 [moira hawthorne]: oooooooooooooo you are correct...

2005-12-13 [Zardra]: O.o... you are right... wow, I need to change that ^^; ... I knew there was something wrong with it ^^;

2005-12-14 [Ocean Soul]: I know that.. sometimes there's something wrong but you can't identify what it is ;)

2005-12-14 [moira hawthorne]: that why WIP contrustive critiques are so important

2005-12-14 [Ocean Soul]: WIP?

2005-12-15 [Ocean Soul]: I drew a woman with a knife and 6 fingers once.. but the other mistakes.. I guess I didn't notice >.>

2005-12-15 [moira hawthorne]: I drew characters with their feet on backwards... now they were siting cross legged... but still

2005-12-15 [Zardra]: hehehee... those mistakes are so fun... irritating when they happen, but fun =P

2005-12-15 [moira hawthorne]: which is on the same funny level as Bill's.. 'come see there is a squrril with no tail that looks just like a bunny rabbit!' ... 'yes Bill that IS a bunny rabbit'
