I wanted to show you (the quick way) how I used the layers in a previous posted drawing.
I made a pencildrawing, scanned it inat 300DPI .
I smoothed out the drawing , and touched it up a little bit.
Resampled it to 100DPI, keeping the same dimensions as from the 300DPI size.
Import the drawing in Artrage2.
Duplicate the layer, click the little arrow in the layers panel.Choose "layer blending" ; "More Blend Modes"; "Multiply". This makes the drawing a bit heavier in the contrasts.Put opacity to 57%
Above this layer, I make a new one...
I will be painting on this ,and the above layers with the crayon tool. Pressure 27% and lower, and softness at 100%
