PNG tutorial thingy by oomizuao PNG tutorial thingy by oomizuao
A tutorial showing how I make drawings with invisible backgrounds, or PNG images.

I'm sure a lot of you know how to do this already, but I just felt like showing how I do it, in case someone could learn from it.

sorry for any typos or bad english or whatever XD

I hope at least someone finds this somewhat useful ^^;

When shading, do you make a new layer or do you just color directly on the layer with whatever you're trying to shade?

Question!! I'm really new with Photoshop so I was wondering if you use any special tool when you draw sketches or do you just use the pencil tool with cyan color? :)

Does saving it as a PNG instead of a PSD change resolution or file size??? I use Photoshop for school but the files are taking up a lot of space on my computer. T.T

It's always smart to save it as a PSD file too, in case you feel like editing it someday, or you need the original file for some reason. If they take up a lot of space, I'd recommend storing them on an external hard-drive or a USB memory stick. :)
The PSD files are much larger than the PNG file, but it's very smart to save as both :)

PNG is a file type that you can use to save a digital drawing with. The program she is using is Adobe Photoshop. I can't tell which version though.

Interpolation reflects how something's going to be loaded on your browser. It takes up a bit more space than non-interpolated. It does the fuzzy-to-clear loading thing instead of just a top-to-bottom load. Or that's my understanding of it. ^^

the pen size depends on the size of the canvas, but I've started using a brush from this brush pack: [link] the HARD Ink Brush

You probably didn't mean for it to be, but I found the ending really cute, with the "A little box will appear, where you can select 'none' or 'interlaced'. I don't really know the difference between them, so I always select 'none'".

I don't know the difference either, but it was just the way you put it that made it sound adorable. x)

Do your pictures ever get blurry when you shrink them down? How do you deal with that?
And thank you for the information, this really helped. :)

The best thing is to shrink the sketch before you do the lineart, so it keeps the actual lines nice and clean.
