Hi! :)

I'd like to know what "blending your sketch" means? I've seen it in several tutorial etc, but I've never really understood what it means. I've tried to search dA, and google it but I haven't found anything... I'd be very grateful if someone could explain how you do it to me :)

I set the sketch layer to multiply (or overlay) and/or paint over it to smooth/refine it.

(not sure if that answered your question lol)

Well, I see something like "blending sketch" firtst time, it would be helpful if you could link up these tutorials :XD: But right now all I can think of is blending the sketch with bg or just blending colors on your sketch(if you start up with colors as underpaint)...Dunno, i can only guess.

I don't remember what tutorials, unfortunately... But I'll try to look in my bookmarks, and see if I added any of them :) I think it might be what the artist is doing in this speedpaint (though I'm very unsure, and it goes by pretty fast): [link]
It begins about 1.50.

Well, and this is it hopefuly :) Pretty good method would be picking up colors from the lineart surrounding, and painting over it :) You'll hide the lineart and get a nice, painterly look ^^

Oh, I see ^^ Itried something similar before, but it didn't turn out very well. I think I now have figured out how to do it better though: I changed the colour of the sketch to one more similar to my colour scheme and then I blended it the way you said. Turned out way better, and much less messier than when I used black :D

Look at my reply above, to Namae-san :) I think it might be what the artist in the video is doing. But I'm very unsure...

Oh, and I remember you're supposed to merge the layers before you do it.

then that video was a good example of how to do that. if you mean making the sketch go away though then that's just lowering the opacity on the sketch layer and making sure its on the below the others
