Frick it's huge. I apologize.

I said I'd show a step-by-step some time ago, but I kept forgetting to take periodic screenshots whenever I drew. So finally I remembered. Here you go. I tried to show brush settings and stuff in there.

(Picture is Gintama :3)

Sorry, I don't want to do a tutorial or livestream, please don't ask x:

If you have other questions, ask in a comment and I'll answer it here in the description. Thanks!

Q: How long did it take?
A: Around 3 hours.

Q: What's the last step?
A: The grayish layer is a multiply, the blue one is an overlay.

Q: What brush sizes did you use?
A: I used a 4px for lineart here. The one for coloring just depends on what I'm trying to shade. I use the hard-edged round brush.

Q: What size is the original canvas?
A: It was around 4000x2000px.

Q: What program is this?
A: Photoshop CS3.

Q: Did you use mouse or tablet?
A: I used a Wacom Cintiq 12wx tablet here.

Q: How did you fill in colors? Do you erase the excess?
A: I use a combination of magicwand>paintbucket, and the brush tool. If it's excess skin color, I just cover it up later with a hair layer on top, and clothing over that even later.

Q: Why is stuff flipped sometimes?
A: I do it to check how the picture looks and sometimes because it's easier for me to draw facing one way or the other.

Ah. Stupid question: how's the lineart always to see? l mean why the colours don't cover lines? I tried, but I don't get it >.<

If you put the lines on a layer, and the colors on a different layer, then you can keep the lines layer above the color layer so they will always be visible.

I have a question, because the tutorials (of other people) never tell.
How do you know where the shadows go? Do you just guess an d try or do you study actual shadows when people make those poses?

I have a hard time figuring out the light ^^;

:iconnuriko-kun:
nuriko-kun Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2013
Some shadows are more straightforward, i.e. if you have a light directly above a cow, the cow's body is going to block the light from hitting the ground below, but for more complex things like where the light hits on the round cow, or how the light reflects off the grass below, etc, you need to study how light works. Artists ARE guessing the shadows when they draw, unless they're copying directly from a live reference, but it's an educated guess based on what they know about lighting. If you guess at random without any knowledge at all, it'll come out ridiculous.

I like this one. You have a CintiQ? Well no wonder your lineart is so lovely then. I have a intous, so moving my hand feels slightly awkward. I like watching my pen for some reason =~=' but still, lovely tutorial. Thank you for going through this awkward process to teach us :>

Forgive me for asking, but why do you have different base colours for different panels?

I have no idea if you'll even answer this, buuuut I have a question!

Ehe, I feel really dumb asking, but I guess one will never know until they try.. Um, I'm still new to the whole digital art and coloring concept. Because I've been spending my time just practicing on actually being able to draw a person and it not look like a total fail or alien, ;7; I haven't even begun to step into the coloring realm. So, to stop beating around the bush - how the heck do you do line art?? I mean, do you first sketch on paper, scan, then use the brush tool to line it, or do you actually draw on the computer using a mouse (or tablet or whatever)? I've tried to scan mine a couple of times, but I really don't understand how you can make the lines look so neat... Boo.

Sorry for the long comment, understand if you don't have the time to answer. n_n Also wanted to say I really look up to your work and think you're extremely talented. ^7^ Maybe someday I'll be able to catch up (or never..?). :yum:

For me, I do a rough sketch using the brush tool and my tablet (if you don't have one, or are not comfortable with using one yet, you can scan a pencil sketch), and then I trace over the sketch on a new layer, also using the brush tool.

If you don't have a tablet, I don't really recommend doing lines on the computer because it'll be very time-consuming, and near impossible to get natural-looking lines using a mouse. Rather, you can do the clean lines with pen/pencil, and then clean up the scan in Photoshop or some other software.

Hope that helped :)

Oh, hate to bug you again, but what kind of tablet do you use? There are so many, and I'm just curious. If I was to ever get into digital art, it would be great to have good references to the type of tablet to get. My friend has one, but they don't use it for serious drawing. And it works really slow. You'll make a mark on the tablet, and about 15 seconds later it'll show up on the computer and look all strange and funky.

You can flip any selected region using Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal. I line using the brush tool.

I love your artstyle. I'm working on trying to get the artistic line and coloring art down, but not the way your characters look, but close. XD

I notice in some of your pictures you upload, when showing them in screenshots as steps, you cover a good amount of their clothing in globs of the color brown, and then in a new step their clothes are colored. I was curious what the brown is used for?

Thank you for your patience and time for reading this! :la:

Once I fill in the to-be-colored area with brown (or any color), I can then click "lock transparency", and that will prevent me from putting marks anywhere outside of that brown area. That way I can use a big brush to fill in colors without worrying about going outside the lines.
Hope that helps :)

Oh my gawd! That's awesome. XD I mess with layers, but never thought that locking transparency would allow me to stay within the colored areas. I only lock a layer so I don't move things underneath an object. I'll have to try this sometime. This did help. It helped me tremendously. Thank you! :la:
