Digital Colouring Tutorial by Gold-Seven Digital Colouring Tutorial by Gold-Seven
It was high time for a new tutorial - so here it is!

Technique: Digital colouring and painting
Programme: Photoshop 6 (graphics tablet recommended)
Techniques: Shading, lighting, creating custom brushes
Experience with digital media: Intermediate recommended. I don't explain the most basic of the basics in this one.


Please note: I still paint in Photoshop 6; a lot of things are probably different in newer versions, but most of what I explain here will (hopefully) go for more recent version too.


Disclaimer: This is not the only way to colour, it's probably not even the best way to colour, but it's the way I colour. ;)


Enjoy! :)

Hey, thanks. I have been looking for something that says more about base colors and how to move from them for a while and this one is the best thus far!

so, for the first part, you draw a picture on paper, then put the finished picture into a printer,scan it into the computer, than use photoshop to color it?

That's the way I used to do it, yes. I can't draw on the computer. :) Today, I'm back to using traditional media for all my steps.

I love this, thank you so much! I like the rough look of pencil lineart, too, and I could never figure out a way to keep it and still get some coloring in (my worst fear, lol) without resorting to digital inking first. Can't wait to try out the tips in this tutorial myself, thanks again!
