Digital Art Tutorial - Layer by Lodchen Digital Art Tutorial - Layer by Lodchen
Hey guys =D

Yeah, I did my first Tutorial^^
It is about Layers, because so many Beginners are asking the same questions about them.
This Tutorial is about how to use graphic programs, not about how to draw!
I hope it will be helpful -if not, tell me why, because I want to know how I can do better next time :la:

If you have questions about digital drawing ask me, and I'll try to explain in the next Tutorial (yes, I'll do more of them, if you want me to^^)
What should be the topic of my next Tutorial? Tell me what you think! ^.^

Download-Information: The zip-file includes the images I used for this and a html document. You can open it with Firefox. Don't delete the images! You need them because the html will not work without them!
Why is it a html document? Because this way you can scroll and use the index.



As promised in the Tutorial, here you can find the proof that you can do awesome work on only a few layers:
(For a Link to the video just read the description)

Curious about the Tomb Raider drawing I used for this? You can find the finished picture here:

du nutzt sai ja komplett anders als ich :D
ich mach die schatten(und das licht) gleich auf die selbe ebene XD
clip funktion usw nutz ich meist am ende(wenn überhaupt >.>)

egal: super tutorial XD

Echt? xD ich könnte das garnicht, dafür änder ich im Nachhinein immer noch viel u viel xD (Ich muss gestehen, dass ich teilweise alleine 10 verschiedene Ebenen für Schatten und Licht habe xD ... was im Grunde genommen keinen Sinn macht, aber ich brauch einfach die Sicherheit xDD)

Danke, deine Einschätzung ehrt mich, da du ja wie mir scheint selbst Ahnung davon hast =D

kurohii Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2012
so kann man ja im nachhinein auch noch alles ändern XD

zu viiiiel D':
mir wären schon 2 getrennte ebenen für licht und schatten zu viel XD

nee eher nich XD sieht man an meinen bildern
oder meinst du turoials machen.__.
da hab ich bisher nur 2 ganz grobe gemacht

Lodchen Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Schon, aber es is einfacher ne ganze Ebene zu löschen =D

xDDD

Echt? Ich find deine Bilder sehen aus als würdest du ziemlich gut mit deinem programm klarkommen =D
Nee ne, ich meinte wirklich bei denen Bildern, nich bei Tutorials^^

Thanks for the tutorial. I'm sure it will be very helpful when I start my learning process in Photoshop with my art work. I have CS4 and I'm still a little intimidated to use it. Just gotta keep working at it. :nod:

=D I can't remember your question (sorry for that, I have been very active in the forums lately O_o), but I'll hope it will help.
If not, I would be grateful to hear why not.

I'm going to do more tutorials soon, if you have other questions, don't hesiate to ask^^ Maybe I'll explain it in the next tutorial, then^^

It was about digital coloring.
Well I'd love to see any new tutorials about coloring/shading you might make.

Okay^^ Your not the first one who has problems with the shading, so I think this will be one of my next topics^^

I like it very much! :typerhappy::worship::clap::+fav:

Vielen vielen lieben Dank^^
Ich war wirklich unsicher, ob das Tutorial überhaupt jemandem helfen würde, also freut mich dein Kommentar ganz besonders :hug:

Doch - tut es, ich habe Layer bis jetzt doch ziemlich ineffektiv eingesetzt würde ich sagen... ;) :hug:

Lodchen Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Dann freut es mich natürlich sehr zu hören, dass ich helfen konnte^^
-Meiner Meinung nach war die Layer Clip Funktion die beste "Entdeckung" die ich je gemacht habe. Ich habe soooo~ lange ohne sie gearbeitet weil ich nicht wusste, was das ist, bzw wie es funtioniert... ich glaube heute würde ich ohne layer clip verzweifeln, weil es einfach soo~ viel schneller geht^^

Noch habe ich es nicht ausprobiert - aber es kommt ja Ostern. Ich habe aber den ersten Eindruck, dass es mir ganz genau so gehen wird... ;) :tighthug:
