Tutorial: photoshop coloring by Lumaga Tutorial: photoshop coloring by Lumaga
ENGLISH
English version of a photoshop coloring tutorial, it's originaly made for two friends :icondark-catgirl: and :iconakari-chibi:, but I hope it can help you all.
It looks kind of long =_= but that's because it has a lot of image references, I think it's better that way...
It's separated on various parts:
-Base colors.
-Masks.
-Shading.
-Lighting and eyes.
-Color for a pencil-made lineart.
-Bright on hair.
-Final effects.
Please sorry if you notice that my english is horrible xD.

Lineart (only spanish)
Step by step


I have to thank :iconznow-white: for the DD! :dance:

Bonesy24 Featured By Owner May 6, 2008
its way different. its not photo editing, its using the pen tool to trace around images to turn them into... uh... man... i dont remember what the files are called. EPs? i dont remember.
at first its real hard, but after alota practice you get the hang of it and start learning tricks and stuff like that

It looks very helpfull, I just have one question... I did a lineart and scanned it on, except it came up as just the background. How do I put this onto a different layer like yours? Thanks! :D
Reply
:iconlumaga:
Lumaga Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
(using photoshop) That always happens when you scan something. You have to pres M key (on the keyboard to make the selection tool appear), select all the drawing with that tool, cut it with Ctrl+X, then paste it with Ctrl+V. When you paste the drawing it will appear on a different layer, then you put that layer on Multiply mode and you can start coloring : )
