I may have to dive into that step a bit further in the future on another breakdown. Hopefully I can make time to put a new one together. :nod:

Glad you found something helpful in this breakdown. It's really encouraging and gives me the itch to make more. :XD:

Hmmm is it possible to fix the film fx with photoshop alone?

It's possible. You just have to hunt around for the right filters and tweak things with a bit of patience. :nod:

Awesome! The final result looked like a legitimate anime screenshot! :D
I am curious as to what you mean by the ambient lighting and film effect stages. How did you do both processes?

Hmm, the question of "how". The commentary only tells "what" I did.

The how is different everytime, so there's no exact process I can tell you; it seems I'll need to go into further detail on "how" once the process stabilizes a bit.

Thanks for asking. You've got me wondering how I can best explain it now. :D

Well, but then again it's more like a quick-through of how you made your art, so I guess adding too much detail would be a bit overboard. ^^;

But how did you color it in? I really do suck with computer stuff and it looks way too good to be done on paper.

The entire process is digital, but drawn by hand.

Which part of the coloring do you mean? The flat colors?

If it's the flats then I carefully outline the area I want filled with a flat color then tell Photoshop to fill it in using a custom action I built.

If it's the shading, then that's all done by hand, too. Just patiently done. :nod:

I mean, after all the lineart. How do you fill it with colors? What program? I'm a noob, sorry. X3

I do all of the drawing and coloring in Photoshop. :nod:

The colors are first outlined by hand and then I use Photoshop to fill them in. Each color gets its own separate layer so I don't mix things up.

There's no other way that I can explain it to you unless you've actually tried using Photoshop yourself. That's the simplest I can say it.

If you want to see how I do it in action then this might give you an idea. You can skip around the video to see what I mean.
