Colouring in Photoshop by Gold-Seven Colouring in Photoshop by Gold-Seven
*** OLD TUTORIAL*** - click here to see my new one. [link]

Again, several people asked - so here's what may be my first tutorial deserving of that term ;)

Programme: PS 6, but will work with all PS versions that have layers (Painter doesn't support my beloved Colour layers, I'm afraid)
Skill level w/PS: intermediate. You should know your way around with the basics.
Other: I use a tablet (Wacom Intuos 3), and I know that people can achieve some great digital painting with a mouse, but well, I can't. ;)
Size: 1.7 mb


#1 My Photoshop version is German, but that's all. Everything is explained and translated in the text. If you come complaining that you can't understand the tut because it's German, I'll know you haven't even read the thing, and if you didn't bother to do that and just whine, I won't bother to answer your whining either.

#2 Please don't ask me where you can "download that Photoshop App". Photoshop, as so many don't seem to know, is a high-end image editing software, designed for professionals. You buy it in a shop that sells computer programmes. And yes, it's very expensive. That's why I'm still dabbling with the age-old version 6.0.

To the many of you who do read before posting - enjoy!
