ever wondered how to put pattern effects on stuff? this is how i do them. :P (using paint tool SAI)
*other colors will change the color of your shape. tip: brownish patterns will give your shape an antique/vintage/old effect. orz i fail at explaining haha
lol i love the overlay effect! :D i hope this helped! :3
Why don’t you just make the pattern layer a clipping group? It seems like itd be infinitely easier, since clipping groups constrict any marks to appear only on whatever marks were made on the layer underneath. Is there a benefit to doing it this way that i just cant see?
Fenne explain this because I have no idea what you’re talking about
Its… easier to show than explain. You have sai right? Honestly, I know you use textures so its probably what you’re already doing but just don’t realize it or it has a different name.
I’ll explain anyways
So on this layer I have a green star
If I draw a line on a layer above it, that line will be on both the white/transparent area around the star and on the star. Thats normal.
But, if I make the red line layer a clipping group - that red line will only appear on the layer directly underneath it.
So likewise, if I want to put a texture on that star, instead of going through the 5 steps explained in the tutorial before - all I really need to do is make the texture layer a clipping group and it will only appear on the green star.
Clipping group layer:
Theres probably a more professional name for it or something, but I wouldn’t know. You can set that layer to overlay/multiply/etc. Whatever you want. From what I can tell it does the exact same thing as the tutorial, so thats why I wondering why go through all that trouble for something that can be done in just a click? Is there some benefit to it I’m missing? This seems like a more flexible way to be honest.
