Manually filling areas with color

To create more areas of solid color, we'll need to use the brush tool and the eraser together, as there are no more closed black boundaries.

1 I Deselect and choose the brush tool. Choose one of the hard, round, brush presets from the brushes preset picker in the tool options bar. Specify a diameter of around 10 pixels and choose a bright green foreground color.

2 I Set the opacity and flow to 100% in the tool options bar. Use the brush to paint color into areas of the leprechaun's clothing on the current layer. Increase or decrease the diameter as required. Feel free to stray outside of the lines.

I Use this method to paint different colors into remaining areas of the leprechaun as well as the rocks. Select the eraser tool. Set up the tip and options like your brush, and erase any painted areas that extend beyond the outlines. Increase or decrease the diameter as required.

6 I Use this method to paint color into areas of the monster as well. Increasing or decreasing brush diameter as required to carefully paint his skin, eye, the underside of his tentacles, suction cups and his spots. Don't be too fussy when painting around the edges because, as you already know, you can erase any unwanted paint. Take extra care when painting in areas where two colors meet. Use very small brushes, and paint one color over the other wherever required. To achieve the soft blending effect around the center of the explosion, erase the sharp painted edges using a very large, soft brush tip and a low opacity setting.
