Criteria for dividing materials

The amount of material to be divided depends on the model,
You will be able to make models with higher quality as you divide them finely.

 

 

 

Procedure for dividing materials

First of all I will copy the original picture.
Place the copied original in the newly created group (folder) and rewrite it to the name of the part for easy understanding.

POINT
Let's copy the necessary parts partly for the original picture.

 

Set the layer mask in the group that copied the original picture and cut around the parts you want to clip.
Even if you erroneously overdraw the drawing part, it is convenient because it can be easily restored by using the layer mask.

 

Be sure to create a new layer and add the color and line of the part there.
Parts that move greatly, those that will be visible when the other parts move, draw a little more beforehand and do it.
If you add directly to the layer of the original picture in the group, it will be difficult to modify later, so be careful.

 

More than 大まかな It becomes the flow of [material division].

Materials can be worked with various drawing software, but according to layer masks and illustrations
It is recommended to work with [Photoshop] and [CLIP STUDIO PAINT] which can use various brush tools.
