⑷ Go to the Edit menu and choose Paste.


⑸ Once you paste the background, go to the Selection menu and choose Transform.  Adjust the size and angle.

2. Use the background image in your illustration!

We will show you how you can apply a background image to a character illustration!

⑴ Paste the background image, and adjust the size and position.

⑵ Use the Bucket tool to add colors to the sky and building.
Also change the color of the lineart by checking “protect alpha” on the layer panel.

⑶ Use “clipping” to add shadows to the buildings.
Then use the pen to draw clouds.
Let’s also merge the background layers.

⑷ Use the fill tool and place a rectangle at the center.
Clip the merged background layer to the rectangle.
Duplicate the background layer, and place it below the original background layer.  Go to the Filter menu and choose Hue to adjust the colors.

⑸ Find a tone pattern from the cloud materials, and paste that as well.
*You need to log in to use the cloud services.

⑹Adjust the colors, and it’s done!
