Hey, I've been wondering for the longest time how artists draw 'lineless art' and I wonder what are the processes you go through to achieve the lineless look much like your Sherlock fanarts? Sorry for the long ask and if this is too much trouble for you!
wanting to know the tricks of the trade, are we? haha
well i’ve seen a lot of people go about different ways of doing lineless artwork! some people use lineart then hide it by colouring it in, while others use the lasso tool + fill. i take the more tedious way of doing it by blocking in shapes and then colouring/shading it according to the rest of the piece. ngl, it takes a while for me to work on a piece. (or maybe i’m the slowest artist ever?)
i’m just putting out this really useful resource!! i found it when i was panic-stricken with photoshop crashing on me while working on my anime north merch. it helps recover and extract some layers from damaged .psd files.
please note: that the amount of files recoverable depends on how corrupt the .psd file is. it can salvage a lot of layers, or it might not be able to salvage any at all (i experienced both). but this is a great last resort option if you don’t want to start from scratch.
tcaf was absoutely amazing!! ;___; so many talented people in one building, i’m surprised my head didn’t explode from the amount of talent haha. i went with my pals coffeefrank and fritizer, got to meet and get autographs from pendleton ward (adventure time) and andrew hussie (homestuck)!!! they were both incredibly nice and i even got the huss’s seal of approval in my sketchbook aaahhh cries forever
it was really nice meeting other people too, i did get a brief encounter with averyniceprince and some other really cool homestuckers! basically this year was really super great, definitely going again next year
bad side to this day is that my cs5 decided to fuck up on me AGAIN with my madoka print so i need to see if i can recover some of it sobs… but i’m not going to let that ruin my day dfjashgh
