    Proper colors/fades ect.-Look even if you think you know how

    I've noticed that alot of people I know do a fade wrong, so i'll try to help you guys out.

    First, a simple fade behind an object(In this case, ground):
    [tn=500:1so5lrsx]http://img248.imageshack.us/img248/4281/rightwrong1ly1.png[/tn:1so5lrsx]

    This is done wrong in a number of different ways, not just a stickman.
    I have also seen many people do a big ball (From an energy attack or something) that slowly fades to white, and it is in front of the bg still, even when it's almost white.
    Think of it this way: If you see a light fog on your street, you can see through it, even though it's not the exact same color as what is behind it. So once the object is almost the color of the background, move it behind it, so that it looks more transparent.

    Second, a colored stick fading behind something:
    [tn=500:1so5lrsx]http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/6784/rightwrong2zj9.png[/tn:1so5lrsx]

    Now you may think "Who does that?" But you'd be surprised how many people do it.
    If you have a color stk, you make it fade from it's color, to lighter shades of it's color, until it matches the background.

    Third, fading into a colored background:
    [tn=500:1so5lrsx]http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/9530/rightwrong3if7.png[/tn:1so5lrsx]

    Now this isn't done as often, but this can help out some begginers, i'm sure.
    When you fade into a colored background, you don't do the classic fade to white thing.
    You fade from the color of the stick, to a dark version of the background color, to almost the background color, then it dissapears.

    I hope I explained that well enough for you to understand =P

    what bout fading into diffrent color background's? like you have grass one color and sky another, what color should you fade to then? or if you have a alot of colors behind the stick, what do you do there? Or even if you have a colored red person that has to fade to green? How do you fade across the color board? This is kind of a really simple tutorial, All though helpful for new people. But you might want to include those things i asked.

    Yes, I figured that was the way to do it. But I wanted frozen to add it to the tutorial. But it still is a problem for super complex backgrounds, where you have tens of colors in tiny spaces. But wow, that animation you made there, was like death to the eyes.
