Coloring Tut. Paint Tool SAI by Arcky-Cano Coloring Tut. Paint Tool SAI by Arcky-Cano
Here's that BASIC coloring/shading tutorial I promised~
Huge file is huge.
Here's the lineart tutorial: [link]
And the work I was working on for this: [link]
Finished product: [link]

I use Paint Tool SAI, but the same effects and tools should be useable in Photoshop. Here's a good tutorial about the select tool by my favorite artist on dA: [link]

Tools used:
:bulletgreen: pen
:bulletgreen: water
:bulletgreen: select
:bulletgreen: deselect
:bulletgreen: magic wand
:bulletgreen: bucket-fill
:bulletgreen: airbrush
:bulletgreen: tablet
(you should also have a basic understanding of layers, layer clips/masks, and opacity)

PLEASE, ASK IF YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND. I'm not that great at explaining things >.> And since my last tutorial I used my usual handwriting, which is cursive, I used my sloppy print handwriting this time x'D

And I shade skin and eyes a bit differently, but this is the most basic way I shade hair, clothes, and accessories.
/slowly continues on commissions

Other tutorials I find greatly useful:
