Creating Break Triangles
The Brush tool is often the most intuitive and rapid tool for creating rough sketches and clean lines. A single colour, such as black, is often used when tracing a clean version of a rough sketch. However, when it comes time to soft trace the lines in different colours, the flattened or unflattened clean brush strokes can suddenly become time consuming to ink.
Toon Boom Harmony lets you create triangular breaks at line intersections. These intersections are the probable locations where colour line breaks naturally occur, such as where a sleeve meets a hand.
- In the Drawing or Camera view, use the Select tool to select part or all of the drawing to be broken.
- Select Drawing > Create Breaking Triangles. If your brush strokes are not flattened, they will be flattened automatically before the breaking occurs.
- Use the Repaint tool to paint the outline of different colour zones with different colours.
