This is a very easy way to delete all the white from a pencil sketch in photoshop and also make all the grey tones transparent. It works fantastic.
Hey, man - thanks for this. After extensive searches on the net, yours is the only tutorial I've found. I had to use a less than perfect altenative up til now. I'd left off doing old school line art 'coz I couldn't edit the scanned line art layer how I wanted too. Nice one.
What exactly should the shortcut in step2 do? Id doesent seem to work on my keyboard.
It selects all the white and greys, then when you hit delete it clears all the white of your layer and makes the greys go transparent so when you add colour underneath your sketch layer the greys shade your colour instead of having white in the grey. Are you holding all 3 keys at the same time like i'm asking?)
