Artist's Toolbox: Layers and Blending ModesHello!Artist's Toolbox: Layers and Blending Modes by `Astrikos
In this article I will be explaining layers and blending modes.
We will focus on Photoshop/ GIMP / other Photo editing suites and SAI's unique layer styles.
Intro to Layers
Layers are basically pieces of digital 'paper' that can be stacked on top of each other. They're also handy because you can erase parts of the layer, or even control the opacity so that previous layers can show through. Or not.
Layers are really useful because you can organize your digital art, add effects without destroying the original, define values and paint on top, colorize things, and mask things. Using layers allow you to work pretty much risk free, provided that you keep making new ones.
However, things can get super messy if you have 3000 layers and you have no idea what each of them do.
Oh darn it, where the heck is my character's eye? I lost it.
Basic Layer Components
There are different clicky buttons that help you set up your la
|Lots of lovely artists~ Please check them out!|
1. Hi theree! How old do you think I am?
Some 40 year old hobo
2. Dog or cat? WHY? Favorite breed of it?
asdfjkl I like both ;3; But dogs more I think, because they shower you with love and seem happier to see you! I like Huskies and German Shepherds, etc.!
3. What are your guilty pleasures? Heehee
4. Favorite bands/singers?
Oh this changes often! That's because when I find a song/ band I like, I listen to them on repeat for weeks and usually get tired of them after some time HAHA. But some bands/ singers I like are: Coldplay, Snowmine, Sara Bareilles, The Paper Kites, Bombay Bicycle Club... and many more~ I also really like listening to foreign music for some reason, especially Japanese music like from anime- even though I don't understand anything ugh ;3;
5. Do you appreciate traditional art too?
YES of course~ I actually prefer to draw with pencil, I find it gives me a better feeling and is easier than sketching digitally! Also all those people who can paint, watercolour, etc., I think that is really amazing because traditional art is super duper hard!
6. What for you, is art?
Um, I guess if you consider something to be art, then art it is! It's a way to express yourself and allows you to portray anything you want~
7. Do you like deep, complicated stuff?
Yeah, though sometimes thinking too much will make you feel sad, you know? I often ponder the meaning of life and human existence; this counts as deep and complicated right LOL. But don't think too hard or you might start getting weird answers that are depressing haha. Sometimes, simplicity is best. xD
8. Favorite anime characters <3
Eeeee I don't know, there are so many that I can't pick one!!! :'D I really like: Ed/ Greedling/ Roy from FMA; Killua/ Gon/ Kurapika from HxH; Nezumi and Shion from NO.6; Yotsuba; several Naruto characters; all of GoM (except for Akashi currently HAHA)/ Kagami from Kuroko no Basuke; Ryuuichi/ Kamitani/ Usaida from Gakuen Babysitters and lots, lots more... I always get a new fictional crush whenever I start a new series HAHAHA
9. Do you guys like shounen-ai too? ;u;
(refer to #3 ) I LOVE SHOUNEN-AI SO MUCH IT HURTS HAHA IT IS MY OBSESSION. Currently reading the NO. 6 novel and it's so AMAZING asdfjklsf but I know how it will end already so my heart hurts when I think about it. Nezumi, why.
10. Do you think true love exists? Describe it. :3
