Dutchie/DAD Paintie Progress

6 Nov 2018, 7:45 pm
Ive been wanting to make my other main character into a paintie on here for a little while but have been putting it off because Id have to edit the furvilla base a ton. My baby Chip is just a plain little boi without any big head feathers or horns.

Unfortunately the furvilla base DADs are decked out with horns and feathers 45634182_721311838226046_891816441089622
But Ive slowly been editing the base a little to match my boy. Ive still got some work but heres what Ive done so far.

Ive still got those few face horns to get rid of as well as the big feathers down the neck. The tail also doesn't really match Chip's but I kinda like how it looks so I might not change it.
But hows it looking so far? after staring at it for so long its hard to tell if anything looks off so any feedback is great :3

Also If any one wants to use any of my edited versions you can open them up in the tab and click "save as" that should keep them in transparent png format. Or I can just send the files to you if you want, I dont mind.
All credit to furvilla since Im using parts from their bases and then just blending and texturing it to match. The head of my edit is I think from the bear base lol

Those edits look really professional! I love it <3!!!


I'm doing my first Paintie myself, and I've already edited the base, but do you have any tips on how to colour it?

I've just made a separate layer from the base and I'm colouring that at a lowered opacity.

Thank you so much!! took so much trial and error to get the shading/lighing on that back ear fixed after I took out the big horn... yikes, not lloking forwar to those other three horns with all that fur texture right by them lol.

and Yeah. I did my sona Kipses recently and after I did all the edits I saved it as a transparent png (since all the edits where on different layers and I didnt want to merge it just incase I wanted to change something later).
I then opened the png up and duplicated the layer and set the one that was on top to "protect alpha" on Fire Alpaca. I think it might just be called lock on other programs who knows. Its just the one that lets you draw on whats already there but then then wont let you draw outside of it. (you can p much do the same thing with completely filled in clipping layer but I like being difficult. You then can colour in all the markings and whatnot on that layer and set it to "overlay" (most programs should have that" and itll pick up the shading from the grey-toned layer underneath.

You can also play around with other layer settings and hue shifters if the colours look a bit off but for the most part the overlay trick works with all colour pallets. The grey base can sometimes mute/desaturate them a little bit thou.

EDIT* Also I go ahead and set the layer to overlay first so I can see where Im colouring. I just had it set to normal to show how it changes when turned to overlay.
