How To Outline And Color In Paint

Step 1.

begin by outlining your art ( i suggest that when you are outlining, you use a larger tool, it will look better, so if you need to,make the image larger, at least 1000 pixles wide or long) im using the size three tool. be sure to use different sized tool, to make it look more proffesional.

Step 2.

In this step, you will use the bend tool and change color 1 to white, and use the tool to sharpen your lines. this will make the picture look more like an anime person.

Step 3.

this step is tricky. here what you do. you click 'select' then click 'select all'. now right click and press 'invert colors' and then click the file button and choose properties, choose black and white. this should clear yor picture. now go back to properties and put it on color again. then click select and select all, and choose invert color. now your picture is clean and you can color her in!

Step 4.

Now, this is the final step! Choose all the parts you would like to keep, and color them and color BUT black and white!!! Go to select and choose transparent selection. then, make color two black. go to select all, right click and choose cut. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!! now, turn color two white.finally, click paste. if you did this prperly, all the small white dots should be gone. now just clean up the color and now you can color you picture!

Step 5.
