My (poor) explanation on layer clipping: (one but last paragraph)

Q: Will you make a tutorial for PS/gimp/*insert any other program* ?
A: No. I never used any of those and I'm not going to find out for you. Search DA or Google.

Heh, I tend to use the blur tool when I try shading. It really helps create the gradual effect of shadows. ^_^
But I shall definitely try this out. :D

But you can combine it with layer modes to get darker shading or unexpectedly different colors. :nod:

No, sorry. I would rather not have anyone use my work as a base for lineart. ^^;
But thank you for asking me first instead of just using my work without telling me.
