Not aware if this has been done or not (if it has just hit me with a link and a dummy smack). But I am having a problem with the pacing as well as shape of my actual panels. All my battles seem to have the same standard shape to them and I need to switch that up while improving the clarity of the actual sequence of events taking place. Any help you guys have would be greatly appreciated!

I don't recall a tutorial like that... I think that could be helpful...

I believe Pye did do one a while ago and wanted to revive it but some people felt that people would take it as the definite guide of how to do panels and layouts so it didn't happen.

one would be really nice to have though.

not even if someone put up a BIG EFF' OFF DISCLAIMER stating it's not a definitive guide?

Not to drag up old threads but I found this demo rather helpful (especially the pencil holding technique. I mean seriously it has changed the way I draw!)

I hope this can be helpful to you all as it was for me:


I would recommend all his videos as they are ripe with good advice and commentary. (though I do question the way he draws the ladies... and sometime the men...)

I got this from someone who got it off DA a LONG time ago, but it's a very valuable procedure I think should be posted.


1.   Open scanned pen and ink drawing into PHOTOSHOP
2.   jack up the contrast (don't forget to clean spots and smudges)
3.   make 2 new layers
-   transparent
-   image
-   white background
4.   select all -> Lineart layer
5.   Copy the selection
6.   go to Channels -> make a new channel “Alpha 1”
7.   go to Channel Options, make these changes
-   Black fill color
-   Selected areas
-   Opacity 100%
8.   Paste your selected line art into the new channel
9.   "Command + click" on the new channel (you will see all the lines get highlited)
10.   click on the Transparent layer
11.   (alt) Option + Delete  (this fills the selection in channels with black, and it is copied into the transparent layer)
12.   Enjoy your transparent Lineart.
- I yearn for redemption, but I'll settle for a breakfast sandwich.

Maybe I'm just not following, but what's the advantage of doing this rather than just setting your line art layer to multiply and then drawing on layers underneath it?

I guess if you wanted to colour in your lines it would be useful.

I'm just asking why you would do it this way rather than a way that seems much easier to me. Bumping the contrast up is going to screw with very fine lines, and might pixelate things a bit depending on how you ink. With multiply you're going to lose zero information, although you'd probably clean up your lines regardless.

If you're talking about coloring your actual lines a different color, then Angie addressed it here http://entervoid.com/board/index.php?topic=9939.0 then Dawg posted something even easier immediately after. Not saying you're wrong or anything, this will definitely work for that kind of thing.

Oh, I'm not worried if I am wrong or anything, I don't really scan stuff in to use and I didn't write that tutorial haha. I just was answering your question of why someone might use that method, but if there are better/cleaner ways I'm all for those instead.

I wanted to revive this and ask the question again that Toast asked at the beginning:
Are there any specific tutorials that people would like to see done and/or find find useful?
