Coloration Tutorial in german!

Since this is really outdated I wont make an english one but I translated the parts so those ppl who don't understand german can somewhat tell what the have to do to achieve this kinda look. Plz remember that this is totally not my coloration style anymore and I think that you can find way more effective tuts for open canvas here on dA.

STEP ONE: Do a sketch
STEP TWO: Create a new Layer (Opacity 30-40% depends on your likes) on top of your sketch. Now Zoom to ca. 300% and do the outlines very carefully. Sometimes it is better to work with small strokes to get a decent result. Always remember your drawings shouldn't always have black outlines choose different colors.
STEP THREE:Hide your Sketch Layer, select the Outline Layer and do some brightness&contrast correction (Filter>Tone of Color>Brightness&Contrast) until you think the result fits your lines...
STEP FOUR:Now we're starting with the coloration itself. 1st create a new Layer under your outline Layer so you'll not harm your outlines during the coloration process. Always remember the Outline Layer is the top layer. To make things easier create an additional layer under your outlines for your background. Since I wasn't as experienced at the time I did this Tutorial I colorated the pic with a white background BUT since your background helps you to create the feeling of your picture you should always pic atleast the Background Color FIRST).

STEP FIVE: Skin. The Basic Skintone Color in this picture was #fffbe3, light shadows #ffe5ca and the really dark shadows #ffe5ca (use whatever color you likeee~) Just fill every skin part with the basic color. Do some shading with the watercolor tool and if you want some strokes to become softer use the blur tool, but don't overdo it.

STEP SIX: Since Eyeballs are round you should colorate them like a round object. So add shadings to the white part of the eye (I dunno what it's called and since this is a simple translation this will do it). Choose a few colors for the iris (i think) I chose 4 Blue Tones that seem to look a little bit alike and just repeat the way you colorated skin in the step before, because basically it's always the same.

Well, I always "teach" something to my friends... why can't do a tutorial for everyone?
Well, this will be 2 parts combining Phosothop and SAI tutorial, one with the lineart and other with the colouring

Another background for anime/manga. Most mangas happens in highschool. I thought it would interesting to make such a background. You can use it for personal use. The picture is quite big. It took me the whole afternoon to do it. Let me know if you use it, I would like to see the results.

New!: I have another one for you (slightly different) here:
