Part 1: Inking
, I draw the background first. But I left that out for this tutorial.
Some concepts are explained better in my previous, outdated tutorial found here: [link]
The purpose of locking the layer opacity is so that when you start shading on that layer, you don't bleed out of the lines.
To make the shiny highlights on the violin, I created a new layer and drew with a light yellow color at a low opacity.
I added the violin's strings AFTER coloring everything.
There have been a lot of changes to the drawing throughout the tutorial, I just don't mention them. XD;
