floralenchantress: OOC: Just a quick question from an artist how to you make the lines around...lets say the light blue lines around you Kill La Kill 'gonna protect girlfriend' picture?

lemonteaflower:

use the select tool,then select the ‘fuzzy’ transparency to the max. 

then click on what you desire to outline. 

then make a new layer down that one, select the bucket and fill in the selected space. 

when you unselect you’ll have this 

see? it has the blue outline, that’s how i do it. uvu

If you Ctrl+Click on the little box that shows what is on the layer, it will create a selection the same shape as everything on that layer.  This works in Photoshop, too.

I don’t know how I lived life before knowing this.

Anonymous: How do you draw tears?

yummytomatoes:

in a super simple non complex way, i tried to explain how I draw tears. its really varies because i have no set method but this is a fast and easy way at least?
>have a character thats gunna cry
>i draw the tears above the drawing layer set on MULTIPLY 
> i erase parts of the tears for highlight purposes (then merge the layer down)
> i frame and add shines to the tears
>i add another multiply layer to make the tears heavier and shinies stand out nicer
