Thread: Help with colouring a black and white drawing

    Help with colouring a black and white drawing

    Okay I'm being dumb but...ops:

    I imported a black and white jpg into Artrage, I want to colour on layers underneath it, but keep its black lines, how do I make the white go transparent??
    According to the manual I can just select " transparent paper" but I don't see that as a paper option. I've tried converting my line drawing layer to Cell, but the white remains.

    Isnt the transparent paper option called cel? Cant you turn down the opacity on that layer? Not sure if this helps.

    first of it really important that the color layer is beneath the bw image? if not, use the technique of sweedie:

    you must make the white in the jpg transparent with another programm like Photoshop or gimp... and save it as a png. then you can load it as a tracing image and change it to a paint layer...

    i would prefer the first method for my chase..
