How I color stuff - a tutorial thingy?

foervraengd:

This tutorial should work with most digital art programs such as SAI, Photoshop, MangaStudio and Corel Painter.

Okay so before I start I should first sum up the layers I’m gonna use:

image

Alright now when we got that cleared up, let’s get started!

image

I begin with a grayscale painting. I only include regular shadows such as cast shadows and core shadows. For this part you can go further and render the picture to make it look less like a drawing/sketch. Or just leave it as it is.

Make sure this layer contains no white pixels once you’re done. And try not to make the shadows too dark or too bright.

image

Now lock the layer, set it to multiply and fill it with a dark red tone - this goes mainly for areas such as skin and hair. But don’t be afraid to experiment with other hues!

image

Create a new layer below the first one and fill it with your preferred dark base color. 

image

Now it’s time to add the colors! Create a normal layer between the first two and simply start coloring. I suggest using a brush with opacity set to pen pressure. Make sure to not add “shadow colors” here - that’s what we have the dark base layer for!

image

The red tone from the top layer is great for adding warmth blending in the skin and hair.

image

If you aren’t satisfied with the color mood, just change the dark base layer to a different color. It’s a nice safe way to experiment with color combinations!

image

Here’s the final result! I could continue to work on this further by merging the layers and render it to look more paintery. But I think this looks okay as it is.

I hope this tutorial is somewhat helpful for some peeps out there!
