Do you know how to outline a drawing? For ex. You draw something you color it then outline the whole thing with a different color, other fire alpacans do that but idk how (lol fire alpacans)
My method is using the magic wand tool and then inverting the selection. Once I do that I go to the Select drop down menu on the tool bar and expand the selection to the size I want. I fill it on a new layer with the fill tool rather than the bucket tool to make sure the entire selection is filled with color. You might have to smooth some parts out with the pen or eraser afterwards.
Is there any way to make folders for the layers?
Not at the moment unfortunately. Perhaps suggest it here via the suggestion box?
When using FireAlpaca with my Cintiq 12WX, all the buttons are unresponsive to a pen tap. I have to double click (with the pen button) to get them to work. This includes the Correction drop down menu. I don't have this issue with other programs. Win7
Try plugging in the tablet after you open the program, or fiddle with your tablet settings :/ I sadly haven’t had this issue with my Cintiq
Is Firealpaca compatible with Windows 8 and Monoprice tablets?
Yes to both!
Once you have drawn something (using the pen tool etc) is there any way of changing the colour of the existing lines?
If you check “Protect Alpha” you can color over the lines.
How do I get my tablet to work on FireAlpaca? It's a Wacom Intuos Pro Small. It may also be important to mention that I am using Wine to run the program, as I have a Linux OS (Kubuntu).
Very cool to hear someone is running this on Linux. My knowledge of that OS is very minute, but there might be some issue with Wine and FA.
How would you take a preexisting photo and make it into a layer on a on going piece?
You can copy and paste the picture into your on going work. This should add it on it’s own layer for you to adjust accordingly.
I didn't know whether to submit this or send an ask, but you know when the lines arnt synched with the movements you make on your tablet, it helps to connect the tablet after you open the program.
Dear god, my mother wanted to use Firealpaca real quick and within minutes she's managed to completely break the undo button. It simply doesn't work anymore, not when using the on screen button nor the button on my tablet pen I have designated to undo. Furthermore all my strokes automatically join, meaning that I can only draw strokes connected by straight lines. I've tried deleting and re-installing Firealpaca in vain, nor does google seem to bring any solutions. Please help!
You can reset the program by deleting the program folder and then reopening FireAlpaca.
Anyone have any other suggestion?
I started working on a Tuls painting last night and I saved it but when I opened it up this morning to work on it, everything was just gone. Is there anything i can do to fix this?
If you lost it all then it’s gone :/ I would try saving multiple file types and see if that helps.
