A Lostie's Tutorial - Coloring Method by lostie815 A Lostie's Tutorial - Coloring Method by lostie815
Here is my coloring method! Also on Tumblr and has a bonus section on Coloring from Reference: thesilvereye.tumblr.com/post/5…

This technique can be done with any drawing program that has Layers, a Polygonal Selection tool, a Gradient tool, and a Paintbrush (and most drawing programs that I know of have those tools). I used Gimp for this.

More tutorials by me: lostie815.deviantart.com/galle…

For a more in-depth look at shading with gradients, you can look at Global Lighting Tutorial by Angelus-Tenebrae: angelus-tenebrae.deviantart.co… and Gradient Tutorial by damie-m: damie-m.deviantart.com/art/Gra…

How do you blend the colors? As I recall, you don't believe in the smudge tool..

That is probably the very best ultra-basic 'here's how to color if you've never done it before' tutorial I have ever seen. Wow.

My brain... x-x
This is overwhelming to me since I am a very new artist to this kinda stuff xD
But this seems really helpful. I will try to break it down and stuff so I can learn how to do the skin and clothing right... Right now my shading is horrible and I can't even do lighting ;3; Good job though. I will be trying this out :3
