basic coloring tutorial by Cyzra basic coloring tutorial by Cyzra
edit--> it was brought to my attention that I had uploaded an uncorrected tutorial. sorry for all the spelling errors- i'm a bit dyslexic and flip many of my words around. so here's the spell-checked version :)

many of you have asked me for a tutorial so i've finally put together a step by step of my process. it's not much and is very simple but maybe it'll help a little :)

oh, and by the way, if you ever commission me to do a character design, this is an example of the screen caps you would be getting every step of the way.

This looks awesome. However there is a problem I have. What I don't understand is how to color within the outlines only. I've heard there is a way with connecting layers with ALT key. I'm sick and tired of coloring and having always to erase around the outlines or certain areas. Isn't there some trick, some special way to make this easier? Maybe you or other people could help me?

hmm, i don't know of any easy tricks. i just paint the general shape and then color within the selection--keeps it clean for the most part. after everything is done and flattened i clean up anything i don't like.
