how I color things by nuriko-kun how I color things by nuriko-kun
A response to all the somebodies who've asked for a coloring tutorial. My last Process guide is no longer the method I use, so I thought I'd make a new one.

Hopefully that wasn't super confusing *-*

The main software is Paint Tool SAI. Total time was about 2.5 hours.

How do you determine what color the sketch should be?

I usually use a low-saturation purple, red, orange, or olive (any of which could be called "brown" on its own) depending on the overall picture's tone. It helps to throw in some basic colors to help you visualize the final picture before finalizing the lines' hue/saturation/brightness. You can also play with lowering the line layer's opacity, or even selectively coloring different parts of the lineart in different colors.

Hey I understand how you did this but I tried to apply it to backgrounds and it didn't work. Not only that but I checked out your youtube videos xD I'm still lost to how you create such backgrounds from nothing but a few lines. I tried it and it turned out to be just a mush of color O-o
