Nice characters, I'm wishing to see this film :)
These are great Ron. Tech question. So you do a tight pencil and then paint in photoshop right. Ho do you cover up the lines so it looks fully painted? Are you painting directly? Using paths?
Thanks, Sam! That means a lot, coming from you.The way I've been stumbling about it, that seems to work so far, is to scan in clean lines and dim their opacity quite a bit, depending on how visible you want them to be (if at all). If necessary, I'll use paths, sometimes imported from Illustrator if I want specific inking styles. Then, I can either paint the actual lines (using pixel lock), or, more often, just use them as a guide and paint over them. You can also multiply the line layer so that it blends better with the paint. I was so used to keeping linework pristine, from my animation days, that it's been tough to retrain myself to paint over them.
