Changing colours in paint.net (Help!)


Recommended Posts

Hello @TruePaintNetFan.  Is this what you are looking for?

I used the Lasso select around the bandana, made a new layer and, keeping the selection active, filled with white.

Flatten the layers and save to .png.

Another option to Pixey's is to Duplicate the original layer >>> go to Adjustments >>> Invert Colours.  This will turn the stripe and neckerchief white ( turning the symbols black)

 

You'll then have to get rid of the rest of the image though.  Use the eraser and this tutorial will help https://www.isimonbrown.co.uk/cutting-out-images/

Don't forget to add the brush/ line tool onto a New Layer and not to leave gaps in any joins

I understand how to do those but it just looks really fake if i paint it like that

i want it to be white but not look completely fake

Then you need to learn how to paint shadows and highlights, or, use a pattern instead of plain white.

 

Here is a tutorial which I used to first learn to paint fabric ;).

The recoloring tool is what you need. It respects the shading of the original colors as you recolor.
