Painting the Background

Painting the background

Now that your background layout, master palette and location colour model are imported in your scene, you are ready to paint your background.

A Harmonydrawing is composed of several art layers. Lines and colours can be separated or joined, depending on the animation process. When a traditional drawing is scanned in, strokes are automatically created in the Colour Art from the Line Art. For paperless drawings, once the drawing sequence is completed, create your Colour Art strokes if you plan to paint your animation in the Colour Art layer. Use the Create Colour Art from Line Art option to create strokes from your lines—see Art Layers.
