This tutorial is preety helpful. You also said you'd talk about doing recolors, but more specificly, making 2 parts of the same sheet different colors (i.e. Making mario's hat green and the rest of his body purple)

@JosephX I'll be talking about Recoloring... Do you mean making Two things that are the same color different colors? (i.e. Making Kirby's feet blue and cheeks green), because, while you CAN do that, it makes it take longer, because you have to go to each sprite and manually recolor it. Oh, and Recoloring tutorial is coming right after the drop shadow tutorial.

Yes, it is. Thank you SO much. That is the only thing preventing me from making a kirby sprite comic.

How do I choose whick color to use as the FG or BG color and fill the bubble with?

Reply Luigi_96, April 4th, 2014, 7:37 pm

@StygianKnight: Well, by default, they're set as black and white. You'll see a black square overlapping a white square. Click on the black square to change the Foreground color, and the white square to change the background color.

I know, I wanted to make it pink though. Any ideas, or other ways to fill the bubble maybe?

@StygianKnight: Um... this image has that. Read the bottom speech bubble.

@Luigi_96: I did read the bubble, but it's kind of vague. I just want to know HOW to choose what the FG and BG colors are.

@StygianKnight: You've got me confused now.
Do you know how to choose your color?

To fill the bubble, using CTRL + , is the quick way to do it. (Or CTRL + . for background color)

@StygianKnight: There's also the Color Picker tool if you need a specific color like Kirby's exact shade of pink...

@Luigi_96: I'll see if I can find that tool.
