Colouring Tut Part I by wyldflowa Colouring Tut Part I by wyldflowa
<< PART II >>

Fufufuuu... it was a long time coming~~~ Sorry I went off on a big tanget with the lineart preparing - there's twenty billion tuts out there that tell you exactly the same method...

I apologise profusely for the length of this (it spans two deviations as Photoshop spazzed because the final file was something like 13000 pixels long and 700 pixels wide >_<; ) and the jpeg compression (I wanted to make it as small of a file as possible for you :3). But that compression is killing my eyes... I'll re-upload if it's a problem for anyone.

Please comment or send a note if you're unsure of anything~~~! If you don't ask you'll never know! ^_^

Please do not edit or redistribute outside of Deviantart. Thank you~~~

This tutorial and Sundae (that pwetty elf *points*) are copyright to ME.

OH! One last thing I forgot to mention! THE BURN TOOL IS EVIL! Don't use it! Your picture will just end up brown and nasty! ^^;

I was wondering, do you do anything in particular to the lineart before scanning it? I always try to scan in my work, but it always looks so... bad after it scanned in. Half of the lines were gone, the scanner practically whitewashed the page, and I was just wondering if, whenever you may have the time in your schedule, do you think you could make a tutorial for lineart and/or scanning? Yours looks so good before you started the coloring, and I'd like to know how. :3 If not, that's fine, too! I'd even appreciate it if you could perhaps point me in the direction of a proper tutorial that could help out. Also, I love your work and thanks so much for this tutorial! I know it takes a while to make them. It's very helpful. :)

I have a question, how do you get you lineart to look so smooth, (T_T) mines always looks so sketchy, it so sketchy that when I use my blur it you can still see the sketchy ness
