(this post could also be called "pony colors - a placeholder for color actions???" and/or "pony colors - nevermind, I AM HELPLESS -edition"
you know how i said i'd make & share color actions of my pony colors palette?
well, turns out i don't know how to make actions!! i understand the basics, but i just can't make them work :DDD it's hard to explain, really...
i need to keep studying the magic of ps, and that might take a while..
so i'm just posting this to let you guys know that if you have any desire to recolor stuff with these colors, feel free to do so! ♥
(o4i_4ernye made an eyeset, look! ♥)
in case you want to know what kind of layer effects i personally use when i recolor using these colors:
BACKGROUND LAYER: the original texture you're planning to recolor.
LAYER 1: fill it with the color you want to use. use the pipette tool to pick a color from the color swatch/palette. SOFT LIGHT, OPACITY 100%
BACKGROUND COPY: make a copy of the original texture/background layer. SCREEN, OPACITY 50%
LAYER 2: fill it with the color you want to use. use the pipette tool to pick a color from the color swatch/palette. MULTIPLY, OPACITY 100%
BACKGROUND COPY 2: make another copy of the original texture/background layer. SOFT LIGHT, OPACITY 100%
i learned this technique from simgaroop, thank you! :))
if you thought the above tutorial was too hard to follow, you can see a clear picture of the layer order here @ Simgaroop's journal (scroll down!).
hmm.. that's all, i think. i'm sorry this is so complicated right now! :S
