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…

thanks alot for these tutorials, i have one question tho. For your colour palette do you choose all the colours before hand or do you choose a couple but also add some as you go along?

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

Here is a decent tutorial. I keep one hand on the shortcut key for the eyedropper/colorpicker tool, and flip from color picker to paintbrush quickly as I paint to smooth out the colors. It gives me total control over my colors, and it leaves the drawing with nice paint stroke textures from either just the round brush or a textured grunge brush.

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.
