Ok well the first way i learned to make this selection.. is to go to channel, make it a selection, delete that, lock transparency and then go back over it with black to redarken the lines.... this worked on the first thing i did.
The second image i did, i used the method that is done on the Gnomon Photoshop for Digital Production DVd... its still new to me so i would have to pop it back in to say for sure how the process is again. And this worked fine for the second image.
Now the third time i tried to do a painting, i couldnt get either of the methods to work, so after a little playing i merged both methods and i was able to get something that was workable and it turned out not to bad for only my third time painting inside photoshop.
Now with this new one i cant seem to get a selection to work that will allow me to keep the lines as they are. What i want to be able to do is to paint where the lines arent... and i have been trying ti figure it out for a few hours over the last couple days and everything i try dont seem to come out right....
So i am curious about how someone of you would go about doing this..
Also, what are some methods to clean up a scan, i havent really done that to the other images i painted and am curious about the process.
