    Drawing/Inking with Transparency

    Hello! I am using ArtRage 3.5.5 on Windows 7 64-bit. I was wondering if it was possible to draw in ArtRage using transparency as a color when using the Ink Pen (and possibly the pencil or art marker) tool. I find it easier to erase with the tool I'm drawing with set to transparent, rather than the ArtRage eraser tool which feels unwieldy and inaccurate to me. I also like to 'carve' out details this way. Previously, I have tried using Multiply layer mode and a white pen, but it does not make the white completely transparent. Matching the color with an untextured background also doesn't seem to work, as the color always shows a bit.

    If it's not clear by what I mean by drawing with transparency, here is a screen of the option in Manga Studio 5:

    I'm afraid not.

    The closest thing we have is using the "Paint Area" selection tool in Studio Pro and ArtRage 4 (but not ArtRage Studio - I'm not sure which you have).

    It lets you use a 'paintbrush' style tool to paint out an area (the red line below). Unlike the other selection tools, it acts more like a Stencil, so you'll need to invert it to delete the selected area.

    As you can see, it has a variety of settings.

    This is something I have wanted also. I have a very limited work-around using Mike and Yael's KillWhite filter. I use a white marker as a precise eraser, then use KillWhite to take the white out of the layer.
