Thanks for this, I'm currently studying to be a concept artist/game artist and it really helps to see your process. :)

I have a shortcut for the pure black and white lines we use in most of the comic, but I was lost when it came to cleaning up the ballpoint pen style used for the flashbacks and still maintaining the depth of them. So I've been cleaning up messy, decade-old line work a little bit at a time for weeks, cleaning up the whites by hand to keep the shading. It took hours and hours for each panel, and completely burned me out on the comic for a while. You just made it take fifteen minutes or less a panel. 

There are no words for how much I love this post and the detailed tutorials you linked with it. Thankyouthankyouthankyou!!!

What kind of scanner do you use?

Canon scanner, but it's several years old already. I scan at 300 dpi so I can get a lot of details in before resizing.

Ive always wondered, what kind of paper do you draw on? ^^

Whatever paper is available, usually ... so cheap printer paper bought by the box.

My friend uses printer paper as well, but my teacher always makes us get this really expensive stuff xc

In your opinion do you think its better to use printer paper?

It's a lot cheaper, and when you animate thousands of frames for a minute and a half of animation, you need to cut corners.

Question !
Why setting the line layer to multiply? On the lineart it looks like a regular black lineart to me...

Multiply is for the coloring. That way you can see the colored layers beneath.

Must be the point I don't get...
Couldn't we see a color under the lineart? xD

BromeliaCarnivora Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2013  Student General Artist
Yeah because of the multiply. :P
If you don't multiply the lineart, you wouldn't be able to see the colors underneath because the lineart is still opaque black and white. The white gets blocked out when multiplied.

Pff it's hard to explain it XD

Maybe you should try in Photoshop and see for yourself?

Estecka Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Yeah I get it... 
It's just that every time I have a lineart scanned, I use the "colour to alpha" tool to entirely remove the white from the pixel, so I always get a transparent layer. xD
I usually use layer effects to give a special render to the lineart, I thought it was the purpose here.. :p

oh well in this case that would be hard, since the lineart is done in pencil. Wouldn't make for a good lineart I think.
At least not with my style.

I suppose that if your lineart is very clean, that wouldn't be a problem.

Of course I do this after cleaning the lineart. So basically I guess i'd get exactely the same result than using the proper layer effect. x)
Though I always find sketchy linearts give a little lively thing to the drawing~
But with my scanner it wouldn't look "sketchy" but "dirty", ha...

I just never manage to like my lineart if it isn't sketchy! XD
So I keep it nice and messy for the coloring, hehe.

Fun thing with multiply is that you can start right away. No cleaning needed.

The lineart isn't see-through, it's black on a white background. Multiply allows you to color the white bits and leave the black lines alone.

Oh yeah, that's it...
I use to remove to remove completely the background so it's always transparent with me.
Well I assume I couldn't guess it.

The trick with Multiply is explained in more detail in the first tutorial I link in the artist's comments, if you're still confused.
