Anonymous: One day could you show us how you color *_*? You always pick out nice colors and man I just admire your coloring so much!!
thanks so much!! heres a quick run down of how i color! (btw i use SAI):
first, just simple flat coloring, i usually do all my coloring in one layer bcus i get really confused otherwise lol….
then with a soft brush i add the face details (cheeks, lips, nose,lower eyelids)
then i grab the colors individually with the selection wand and shade, which i just pick darker tones with a slight red tint?
to make the drawing a bit less static, i change the lineart color using a layer clip and use lighter colors in the inner lineart but keep the outer lines black?? not sure how to explain AAA
then i use a really light pinkish yellow on a sep layer with lumi & shade layer setting on top (my old SAI didnt have this setting but its basically like overlay?) then i adjust the brightness and contrast/tweak the colors a bit
SORRY IM NOT THE BEST AT EXPLAINING but i hope this helps o<-<
