Lineart/coloring help in Gimp or Sai
«: February 21, 2009, 11:48:45 PM»
So my friend gave me very gorgeous lineart to color. <3 and well I put it in Sai, couldn't figure out how to make it transparent so I could color under the lines. Then I went to gimp and was able to do so buuuut it screwed up the lines and made them very thin and ugly. I really don't have the money for other art programs, so please don't suggest that. ^^;;; but anyways. Um anyone know how to color under the lines in Sai or Gimp without drawing new lines?

Since I'm just now realizing that the tutorial was for photoshop (it probably works for GIMP, too, but whatever):

Everything on the internet is free

Edit: I will download this infernal GIMP program and see if I can find what it relates to anyway

I'm so paranoid about viruses from torrents. Can't afford to break another computer. >< I wish it worked for Sai. Sai is so much better -sigh-

There are no viruses on that release (downloaded it myself and my PC is clean). Most of the time, if it has a lot of seeds and no comments mentioning a virus, it's safe.

GIMP's layer blend options are on the layer control panel, right above the list of the layers and the Opacity slider. You'll see a dropdown list marked "Mode:" ... It only has blending modes, none of the specific "layer effects" that Photoshop does, though.
