Learn how to quickly color your illustration with flat color by using layers and the Magic Wand tool.
- [Instructor] Now that I have Zoe's illustration…all cleaned up and ready to go,…we can start filling this with color.…And I have a couple of tricks…that make this process very fast.…The first thing we're gonna do…is double click on this background layer…and rename is sketch.…So it's no longer a background layer.…And then I'm gonna make a bunch of new layers.…'Cause it's just easier to do them at the beginning.…We'll take the sketch and drag it to the very top,…and then we're gonna change the layer blend mode of this…from normal to multiply.…
And we talked about using multiply in another movie.…Multiply makes white transparent.…So now I can do all the coloring in the layers underneath,…and you'll see through the white to the colors.…So let's go ahead and label these first,…because I also find that to be an easier way to work.…So the elements we have to deal with here are the coat,…so we'll call this coat.…We have her top.…Her pants.…
Boots.…Hair.…And finally skin.…So those are all the layers that we need,…and each color's gonna be on a different layer,…
