"Working with Colors" In the POP ART Creator PRO
We will cover: How to work with masks,
and some techniques on getting the best results
Once you have run the main action, You will have a folder called "Colors"
with 5 colors in it
1, 2, 3, 4, 5
And the "Main Color" which in this case is the Black
All of them are labeled accordingly, so we have: BG, Hair, Eye Shadow, and Skin.
So let us cean up, and start from scratch!
let us examine - what the colors actually are.
I will set Photoshop
to show only the colors and ill make the panel a little bigger
so I can explain a little better
Each "color layer" consists of 2 parts.
1. it consists of the Thumbnail of the actual color
2. is the mask
if the mask i Black You can not see the Color
If it is White The Color is Shown
if I would select the layer "Mask"
and pressed command for interact
and press CMD+i (for invert) you will be able to see the color.
and if i Press CMD+i or CTRL+i on PC
The color is gone.
In the same way, If I was to take a Brush
and select a white color
then draw on the mask
Then the color will be revealed
in the same way, if I am to change the color back to black
You will see that the color is going away
There are a couple of shortcuts that will speed up the process.
1 is "D" on the keyboard this will reset your colors to black and white
2. is "X" X will change the colors
If I am to draw with the white.
Then I am to press "X" on the Keyboard
and draw again.. that will be the eraser
And then I press "X" That will be the brush.
With my "Layer Mask" selected... (Not the "Color" - The "Layer Mask")
I am going to go ahead and draw in some color
(I am going to speed up this process a little bit)
You can be as precise or as grunge as you want to be, this is completely up to you
and remember, if you make a mistake; You can always press "X" and erase it.
Now that we got our first color in place, we can go on to the second one.
The Yellow - "Hair"
If you start putting in the color and go over the orange...
you can see that the two colors overlap
I will show you how to avoid that.
if you go back to the first color, the background "BG"
we select the mask and press CMD or CTRL on the PC
You will see that a little hand appears with a square
then you click on the mask
this will create a selection partisan mask that we have created
A selection will allow us to draw only inside of the selected area
if you now go back to the yellow layer, "Hair"
and select the mask
you'll be able to draw - but only inside of the selected area
we want to draw on the other side of the selected area
so you press CMD+SHIFT+i
or CTRL+SHIFT+i on the PC
This will invert the selection and if we draw...
it will not draw on the part of the orange
let me once again speed up the process a little bit.
Now we are doing to go the next layer the "Eye Shadow" but before we do that...
we will select the "hair" layer mask
press CMD + ALT
and you can see
that there is a little MINUS sign on the mask now
We will do this
to add to the mask that already exists
So now we select the "Eye Shadow"
Now that the "Eye Shadow" is selected
we will press CMD + ALT to subtract the selection
same to the lips
CMD + ALT
and click once again
Now, the reason we subtracted the selection is because of the "Skin".
the final layer that we are going to color in.
now we can simply go left and right and fill in
the "Skin" layer
I like to keep the eyes ehite
and also the mouth if there are teeth
I dont like to color that in
And there you go...
I will now press CMD+D on the keyboard to deselect the selection
and it is finished, I wil now go back to the original view
you can always adjust each layer separately
you can, for example, take the "Skin" and double click on the color
And change the color as you wish
that is it that is your colors, they are finished.
