This was amazing! I do have a couple of questions though. 1) I always see colorists coloring outside the lines and then cutting away the extra afterwards. Why is this? Wouldn't it be easier to just color within the lines from the start? 2) In the video, the image kept disappearing and reloading. What was going on there? I feel like this is a step I'm not doing in my work. 3) Lastly, where is a good place to get brushes? You have a gazillion! 4) Why color it in purple then change it? Why not start with the intended color?
I hope that wasn't too many questions. I just want so badly to have the skills you have. Your art is beautiful!
Thank you, this video was very helpful. For a long time I stayed away from coloring, and now that I'm really getting into it I'm having issues like my colors coming out too flat, or I can never seem to get the colors the way I want them to look, but this really puts into perspective that I have to put a lot more work into it in terms of shading, high lights, etc. I must say I envy how you use the marquee tool, and you have an interesting technique, in the way that you just jump into it and clean up any excess afterwords. I on the other hand am always trying to keep everything neat and clean as I go, but I'm gonna try your technique and see if that helps me do a better job since I'll be more focused on getting the colors down and less focused obsessively cleaning up.
Thank you for doing this awesome video. I got to see how you work and the result of course it's amazing, what I've learnt the most is what you do adding a second different colour to the different parts, so it gives the drawing other feeling.
I have another question and sorry if I didn't got it, but I was interested more in which size do you use to do the lineart and what programme do you use for the lineart (I think I've seen that you sketch on paper first, but maybe for digital you work with your cintiq on PS or Painter). It's more about how to do a nice lineart, because it's the only thing I haven't found in other tutorials (and I think I've seen quite a lot, but yeah, never enough tutorials >.<).
It would be great if you can answer me, but I've listened to your vid and you said that you're on Japan right now, so maybe you'll be quite busy.
Well, sorry for my bad English, and I'll wait for your answer ^^ Always a pleasure that you help other artists <3
I do the line art in Photoshop, the trick is to have a nice brush that work well with your tablet, you have to try different brush and play with the settings to get something smooth I have different brushes for different moods, something I like a sketchy brush and sometimes a clean one. I would suggest to learn how to create brushes in Photoshop and then tweak them to you liking.
