AWWWWWW SO SWEET!! thanks so much!! And I know!! I love sakura as well! I love all the outfits Madison made for her!! I will try to draw more sakura stuff!! And thanks so much for being so cute!!!
Hi everyone!! A lot of people have asked me to do a tutorial about how I color my illustrations and guess what!? Today is your lucky day, I tried to do it the easiest as possible! So hope this tutorial can help all of you to color your illustrations!
So to do this we will work with the program Adobe Photoshop, is an Amazing program and you can do a lot of fun stuff, edit photos, illustrations, design, whatever you like, and the best part is that is very easy to use!
1. So we open the program
2. Click were it says “File” and “Open” to open the document were your drawing is, I forgot to tell you to scan your drawing first obviously.
3. Yay! Here is the drawing! Im going to color it!!! Sometimes when we scan a drawing or a Photo it looks a little bit gray or dirty, for this we are going to use the tool “Levels” to select it, type “cmd + L” or go to the top of your screen and select “Image>Adjustments>Levels” and it will appear this Window, select the little arrows and move them until you feel comfortable with your image.
4, Now select the layer were your drawing is, and on top of it, were it says “Normal”, select it and look for the option “Multiply” (this is the magical option for all this to happen)
5.The next step, is to create a new layer (to do this you type “Ctrl + Shift + N”) Make sure that your new layer is below the Multiply layer of your illustration.
6.We are almost ready to start coloring, but first we have to choose the color que want to use, select were the Black and White squares are, then its going to show a little Window with all the color palette and choose one.
7.The next step is select the type of brush you want to use to add color, to select the tool “Brush” type “B” or select this icon from the toolbar. The one I use the most is the default Brush number 30. Now we are ready to start coloring, remember that is very important to do this in the second layer!!
8. Continue coloring, choose all the colors you want to use (:
9.This is just for you to see how it looks without the layer of the lines, to see this you just have to select the little eye that is sideways the layer, it will despair and you can see how your drawing looks without this layer, to see it again just select were the eye was. If you are wondering how I color the cheeks and the nose, I just use brush Lumber 30, but the one that is smooth.
10. Tadaaaaaaa! our illustration is ready!! To save it on your computer just go to the top of your screen and select “File>Save as” and just indicate the program were you want to save it and thats it!! I hope all you guys like this tutorial!!!
mintyfreshs preguntó: Hi! Your art is truly lovely. However, I think you should work on hands a bit more. (Please don't take this as hate! It's just friendly criticism.) Looking at your own hand while drawing works like a charm. Try using some reference, too! Keep up the good work. Feel free to disregard this message if you feel offended by it, which is not my intention at all!
Hi there!! Oh thats all right! thanks for the comment!! and I know!! its so hard to draw hands, haha I need to practice more! and yes i will follow your advice to use some hands reference to do it better!!
