View Full Version : Keeping the outline in a painting

I know this is posted here somewhere, sorry if it is. Please just point me in the right direction.
How do I make a sketch and then paint, maybe watercolor and maintain the sketch. I know it's done in layers but can not figure it out.

Thanks in advance.

Assuming the work was done on white, unlined, paper, you could import the image to a new layer, and set its blend mode to use Multiply. You could then color beneath the sketch layer, on a new layer and have the color show through. Or, if you're using Studio Pro, you could download and use a filter to remove the white area. Or, you could import the image as a stencil. Because the white of an image blocks color, while black lets it through with imported stencil images, only your line work should allow color through it, allowing you to fill the stencil and giving you your outline.
