Help!!
« on: May 01, 2008, 12:47:45 AM »
Okay, all you talented people-I am very new to digital art and lost the link to my favorite tutorial on coloring lineart  :-[
I'm going to bravely attempt to color the drawing of Sonia and the sakura blossoms I submitted to the fan section at Game Plan. However I am currently stuck. I scanned the lineart in, cleaned it up a little, adjusted curves, etc. NOW WHAT??? I can't seem to find a good tutorial out there.
I have Photoshop 7.
Please help!!!

Turns out I still have an old tutorial around here.  ^^  Hold on a few, I'll upload it.  There are a few things that I would tell you to do differently now, but the principle is largely the same.

Okay, so it turns out I never actually coded the webpage for the tutorial, I wrote it in an rtf file.  :D  The rtf and supporting images are in a zip file; I'll PM you the link.  Anyone else who would like it, let me know, as I'd rather not post this where just anyone can dl it. 

One thing that I do differently now, I don't place the color layer over the ink lines.  Put the color layer underneath and make its layer mode "normal."  Put the ink lines on a layer ABOVE the color and make its mode "multiply."  If you do this, it's not necessary to delete white areas.

This vid should help. One of my favorite comic book artists, darkspeed, shows how to color in photoshop easily.
