First of all, I NEVER used Photoshop for my lickies the first time I done them. I use Paint
(If you're using mac.. Uhm I dunno wut to say xD)
This is my base, I cleaned it up a bit so its not Eevee anymore:
Second of all, you gonna wanna know what you wanna do, no point of doing one if you dunno what youre doin' xD
Go in Google Images or anything you can get reference of the thing you wanna make, and search for pics for it
For this lecture, I'ma do Team Rocket Lyra!
Once youve got 'em pic, all you hafta do is look at the style closely and draw it out
To me, I start with the basics - Face, then the outer stuff liek hair/ears and clothes (If it has any XD)
Firsty, I zoomed in full max with the magnifying glass. Then I started off with her hair, then the bit of her hat plus side bangs/fringe
Finish her hat off
I put clothes on her - LyROFL ^^;
Added details on the other frames
Once youve done that, its time for the fun part - colouring it!
BLAH!! I meant COPY IMAGE not COPY IMAGE URL
Paste the image on Paint then Copy the bit of where all colours are put
Paste the copied part of the image and time to use teh paint-dropper thingy to copy the colour
Using the paint bucket tool, you colour the part of the frame
Done the rest!
Well there ya go! Now the last bits
Select all Frames...
...copy ALL the frames...
..Click that Attributes thing..
..Then this window pops up and put 50 x 50 pixels for each frame you save
Save it as PNG
, or it'll be ruined!!!
When you're all done all 11-13 frames, I suggest to use IAZA.COM
to upload and animate them, not gifninja.com
, unless you want your lickie to be ruined xD
All done! Now theres teh lickie icon ye wantz xD!
