what i'm having problem with is the keys. when i press them, they don't do what you said they would. they alter settings in my photoshop. like F7 removes and adds my layer tab and F6 removes and adds my color, swatches, and styles tab.
can you instruct me to do the steps, like prep, line convert, and grays manually?
I think I've tried attempting to make it one big action, but problems arise trying to get it to choose the right layer. Also, somewhere in-between steps, a person might want to adjust the contrast of their pictures.
Ahh.... it's nice but... In many ways it irks me to encourage people to just use edited photography in their (what I'm assuming) mangas/comics. I think it defeats a lot of creativity on the artist's part, especially when they can learn to make stunning backgrounds of their own.
I guess that's just my two sense. I can see this having some millage in pop art-themed works though.
*two cents by the way, but I totally agree with you. Even if this is a really nice made and helpful tutorial, it spreads the idea of "hey people, why do all the work yourself if you can just use taken photos, refs or stocks" off to all those that used to try on their own and still had the chance of improving on their own as well. It lets people totally loose on the actual creativity and little erfort is used to create a background that usually doesnt even fit with the whole scene itself. Very sad IMO
What if the person uses their own pictures that they photographed around their area? Would it be right to use it if they use their own pictures. The whole using stock photos thing makes complete sense which I fully agree.
same with me. I'm always quite sceptic reading a manga or comic that starts its firt pages with a screentones photo such as in the tut, it doesnt really show much confidence of the artist in their own skill
