Wow, it's a full tutorial
I've been making tutorials every month for all of my $5+ Patrons. Out of respect for them and their support, these tutorials remain locked for Patrons only for 6 months, but I decided I would post them publicly after that, so here is the first one: Coloring with Masks
Mask coloring is the method I use on my own webcomics Mare Internum and The Meek. As you can see from those examples, you can achieve a lot of different looks using one method. And it is very fast and very versatile... I hope you'll get some use out of this stuff!
The tutorial covers the basic scope of things you can achieve using Layer Mask coloring, but I also have a supplement worksheet with several pages of practice problems for sale here if you'd like to test your knowledge and learn to apply this method to your own work.
Note: this tutorial was made using Photoshop CC, but should work with any program that utilizes Layer Masks in a similar way.
As usual, the full archive of high-res tutorials are always available to Patrons, and the current tutorial/ worksheet of the month is available for the next highest tier.
lmao I love you.
Wow, that's... I've been working with clipping masks and masks for a loooong time now and I've never used them this way. Thanks for showing me YET ANOTHER way to do stuff in Photoshop . It's a program that literally has hundreds of ways of achieving an effect.
Masks are also a great way of achieving special effects in your comics, specially for making things partially visible. You want to make Sue Storm gradually invisible from the stomach down? Use a layer mask!
Definitely coming back here later. Thanks for posting the tutorials here too!
Entertaining as well as informative, as always.
Your tutorials are the best thank you so much for sharing them with us!!
