dw coloring

suymilk  asked:

whats ur like ????? process ?? esp w coloring like inhales idk y i cant color for shit but ur art is so wheezes jdgivbsn g o o d

my process lately goes like this:

1) semi transparent sketch (i dont do lineart most of the time bc my sketches r clean enough and making lineart look good is just a whole other struggle)

2) fill the form in with a neutral color….like, grey

3) put down some more saturated colors with a big soft airbrush

4) add more colors, blend, render

(something i realized is that it looks better if you keep the brush size for rendering around the same size at this point…dont go into details too early, or if you’re like me, at all)

6) refine the lines by painting cleanly over them, add definition

7) hike up the saturation slider LOL this is clearly optional
