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.
