Wet edges! That's what it's called! Came to me after a good night's rest.

Okay, I might as well give a few pointers. ;)


SKIN: First I find a peachy colour, and go over the skin with it in Color. Then I make that peachy colour a little lighter and go over the skin again--this time with Multiply. For Color I used a hard-rounded paintbrush, for Multiply I used a soft-rounded paintbrush.


EYES: For the eyes I usually convert them into black and white(from the skin colour) and do a layer of blue in Color, then the same with Multiply. Then I do the black of the eyes with ,Multiply wiht the opacity 100%.


HAIR: I usually choose a browny type of colour and go over in Multiply. ;)


CLOTHES: Depends on what looks good.


MAKEUP: For the lips I find a pinky-peachy colour and go over in Multiply twice. For the cheeks I find a peachy colour and go over in Multiply with a soft-rounded brush.


Hope this helps. ;)

I also have a question. I'll be coloring a pic and I'll be amost done (and really like what I've done so far), then I'll color something and it will come out not to my pleasing. Is there so way to erase it so I don't have to start over? This has happened alot of times to me and can get really frustrating.  :P

Use the Color paintbrush with white and simply erase. That's what I do...


Hope this helps. ;)

There's a history box that you can go back on. It's defaulted position is on the right side of the screen. This is a screen capture of basic photoshop. http://www.warwick.ac.uk/ETS/Resources/Photoshop%20Tutorials/Banner/Images/fig1.gif Note: it's not my screen capture.
But there are 3 boxes on the right side (look for the blue bars). The history one is the top one. You'll have to click on the "history" tab to get it. And before you start, check the preset of the amount you can undo. On my computer, I think the default amount is 10 undo's. You can probably change that though.

How you work it is say you did something 3 actions ago and you can't undo it back by simple ctl + z. The history box has documented actions up to a certain point, so all you do is count back 3 actions and click on the one you want and voila! Stuff you don't want is gone!

btw, I erase at areas with white paint, but even that will not work. I think that I have a technichal glitch with my trial software.
What else can I do to color over dark areas?
It won't let me color over white areas, also.  ???

I just started coloring and have yet to get an account somewhere.  I just want to know how you color something white.  Every time I try, it does nothing, but I see other people's colorings and the white is obviously added.  Please tell me how to do it!

(P.S.-I have photoshop)

Have you tried using "overlay" from the drop-down section? Set the opacity to about 25-30% and you'll be there in the end...

I use Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and was wondering if there is a way to color things white (and I don't mean with the paintbrush set at the color white). Do you know what I mean?

Yeah, I asked that same question a while ago and no one answered.  I just try to get a very light blue or pink that is very close to white and use that, but it's not the same.
