would u mind idk explaining or making some kind of tutorial on how you color you stuff?
I’ve been thinking back and forth because truthfully idk what I’m doing most of the time and I just make everything up as I go ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I also don’t think I’m reinventing the wheel here and what I do isn’t any different from what you can find in every other colouring tutorial on the internet, so I thought I’d just take some screenshots of whatever my process is in the hope that it might help you in some way?
But then I remembered that I already did that when I was drawing this thing a couple of months ago and for some reason never posted the gif. It’s a bit older now obviously and I think (hope) I’m constantly improving, but the basic steps are still more or less the same
- flat colours (use 3892789872 layers if you have to. I know I do)
- block in basic shadows/highlights etc
- refine, throw in an overlay layer (or three), rinse, repeat until you’re satisfied (or just want to give up)
- colour the lineart
- merge/group all the layers and draw finishing touches on top
switch/skip/expand on any step as you see fit! And let me know if you have any questions :]
