KeyLight Producing Weird Results

Hey guys!

For this After FX project, I captured frames of a hand drawn/inked animation with the intent of coloring the character with digital paint in PS/AE.

The background was white paper, which I thought would key out fairly easily--especially since the cel was inked with black sharpie.

However, when I use the keylight inkdropper, much of the black ink is actually destroyed.

I created an animated mask around the inked character, but I still want to paint him, which means keying out the white background (he is not vinyl painted).

Keying out the white in the mask lessens the black ink loss, but the lines are still irregular and messy.

Are there any screen matting tips you guys have?

"White" Background Value: R: 224 G: 216 B: 216
Black (average, it is black sharpie) R: 13 G: 9 B: 23 A: 201
