Create an alpha in SketchBook Pro

In this video I'm going to show you how to create an alpha so that we can use this on the transparency channel in Maya. This is a very simple process, and there's multiple ways of achieving the same result. This is just one example. Let's go to our background layer, and we'll change the color to black. Next we're going to go to Edit Text, in this example we're going to use the word new. I want to change the color to white, we'll say OK to this, let's rasterize that layer, and then we're going to merge it to the background. Next I'm going to my pen tool, any pen tool will work fine, but I'm going to use the felt pen for now.

Let's go to rectangle, let's choose a color, white, and put a border around like this. So, essentially, we have to create an image that has pure white and pure black so that it works correctly as an alpha in Maya.
