Prep the lay­ers

ImagineFX - - Quick technique Flatting your art -

Set the line art layer to Mono­chrome via the Layer Prop­er­ties win­dow and then con­vert all white el­e­ments to trans­par­ent, by press­ing the Black Only but­ton in Layer Prop­er­ties. Next, drop the Opac­ity of this layer down to about 60 per cent, which will help en­sure that the flats are un­der the line art rather than run­ning against it. Fi­nally, cre­ate a full- colour layer be­low the line art and se­lect it. This is now your ‘ flats’ layer.
