Even if I add the cliping mask, I still can brush even outside the girl! How is it possible that only the dress is painted?
Please can you help? Thanks!
here a pic of what I've done
Its more difficult, but it do works with patiens.
And you have to try different things every time. It depends much on the original.
To make something in white and still keep the shadows its difficult.
It wont work with only one step. I will try it and then I can explain to you.
What ever you have to do with an object or model use clipping mask.
If you for example want to light up your object a bit and you use levels. Then the adjustment will
effect all the layers below the object.
Thats why you shall use Clipping Mask. Then the adjustment only effect the object. And you can make as many adjustments layer you want on the object, just use Clipping Mask for every adjustment.
Sometimes I have more then 10 clipping masks on an object because there is so many adjustments to do before I am pleased.
So clipping mask is a must! Try it!
If you dont are familiar with Clipping Mask you shall try to use it.
Its so perfect when you work with an object and have several adjustment as only
shall be on the object. Then just do a Clipping Mask for every adjustment.
Remember that you can have as many adjustments layers as you want when you use Clipping Mask.
So if you have an object as need several adjustments, just make clipping mask of all of them right to the object and you can work free with only the object. It will not infect the layers below.
