Recoloring

Postby Fern » Sun Aug 09, 2015 12:28 am

Hello hello. I AM FERN. Yes, stop the conffeti, I know you're very happy to see a totally innocent person posting!


Actually getting on topic now. Here's a tutorial for all your recoloring needs.

I'll be using the GIMP program for this. You can download it at: http://www.gimp.org/downloads/


This is the image we'll be playing with today.

Image



The first step is to obviously open the image file with GIMP. Then we pick the free selection tool!

Image



Mark the area you want recolored. In this case I'll be recoloring a part of the girl's hair.

Image



After that you click the colors tab and pick the colorize option.

Image


At that point you just mess around with the options you're given until you get the color you want. You can save your presets by clicking the + (plus) symbol.

Image



And that's all. Simple right? Unfortunately, the same can't be done for recoloring stuff to white (unless you want it to look really ugly...)


But there's a way around that!

First we select the area we want to recolor, then we pick the airbrush tool. We set the mode to 'Color' in our tool options window. Of course you should make sure that white is your primary color before doing anything.

Image
Image


You click over the area and then it should look gray at first. Like this:

Image


Then you grab the Dodge / Burn tool and set the type to Dodge. Your range should be Highlights in most cases.

Image


You click, click and click until you get the white that you want.

Image


Voila! And that's all folks. Hope this helped with all your recoloring issues.

I agree 10/10, and it's so helpful in making our own characters unique!

Good guide, but I heavily dislike GIMP.

GIMP is okay, but after awhile using tools takes too long and you just boot up the eraser and trace it by hand.
