ohmygod, you like revolutionized my coloring process @u@
i had this extra complicated system of redrawing all the outlines (i draw lines by hand then scan) then have a background layer of the original picture and a layer of just an outline on top, and all the colors as layers in between, all set to multiply. but i can skip like the whole first half of that now by just making the background multiply ^u^ i can't believe i never thought of that! thanks so much!
I'm so happy you can simplify your process a little! That's so good to hear! I used to have a pretty wild way of doing it too- way more work than I needed to be doing XD Aww ahaha, you're a sweetheart, thanks so much! Agh!
it sounds like your process really evolved naturally, like you just kept doing it til you found a groove that really worked for you ^u^ i'm still at the beginning of that journey, but hopefully i'll get there with awesome guides like you!
i should try burn and dodge too.. i usually just use more layers of color and just change the blend settings and opacity. burn and dodge sound faster and if nothing else i won't end up with a hundred layers >_<
Yea! That's pretty much how it all went down- when I started I swear, there weren't many tutorials that were easy to understand, nor anybody who could really show me what I was doing. (Darn my slow, visual learning, lol) So, hearing that this video helped at all, especially with newer PS users, that is AWESOME, because there we so many times I was like I HATE THIS WHAT IS GOING ON. Also DUDE, yes! When I get done coloring I always go into each color layer and mess with them a little- especially when it's ALL done, I flatten all my color layers and go into Color Balance, and toggle around in there- kinda helps warm the pallet up, or even give it a cold look! Anywhoot- thanks for all the kind words :0 It means so much! Keep being awesome - your art is really great! Not to be snoopy- but you should REALLY up your commission prices, your art is worth so much more! <3333
even now you can never find a tutorial that's exactly what you're looking for, but that's alright ^_^ there are enough to like frankenstein some good tips and strategies together. but that's probably best, since you maintain more personal style the more you do on your own. maybe? lol i might just be making stuff up >_<
actually is ok to note you? i don't want to stuff up your comments with big long posts 6_6
I hear you! Oh my gosh- yeaaa. It helps to have somebody who knows the program right there for you to prod for answers. Though, with online tutorials, Frankenstein-ing is a great way to describe it! Hahaha! Oh- yea, feel free to note me :3
OH my gosh :0 That is so great to hear!! I know how frustrating finding understandable tutorials is, since we all have different ways we learn- so I'm glad this helped you out! That makes my whole day T.T
Thank you for that. I know that I am not one of the people who asked. But I do appreciate the effort you put in. ... ... ...now I can slowly siphon off your talent and add it to my own! Bwahahahahacoughcoughsplutter
Interesting to see someone who uses dodge and burn effectively in their work. Might take a stab at it, but I have one really awkward question, how do you do your lineart, its pretty damn clean and well I cant really get that in SAI and was curious if you would shed some light on it, if you don't mind? Good tut overall.
