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 Hope you learn something of it!! Enjoy!!
Since this is really outdated I wont make an english one but I translated the parts so those ppl who don't understand german can somewhat tell what the have to do to achieve this kinda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.
Translation 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.
Decided I'm going to upload some line art. This one was a request, but the requester unfortunately deactivated her account for some reason, so I decided to upload the base here. ^_^
Hope you enjoy!
Here is the original pic -->

I drew this sketch a couple months ago and on a whim I decided to color it! yay! I was gonna have her laying on some grass, but that would've taken too long and the greens I had weren't the right colors. Too bright. So yeah!
And again I apologize to those who watch me for only updating one picture per month! Lately I've been super busy, ya know! Its the school year, what can I say?
I did a few stationary designs for AWA 2007, and this is one of them. I went with a decidedly faerie-tale theme, which I will probably revisit, and this happens to be my version of Andersen's "The Mermaid". I sell this stationary in packets with envelopes and stickers; they sold pretty well, all things considered! I'm out of stock right now, but if you're interested in getting your own stationary pack, let me know and I can print one up for you.
If you like my work, please feel free to check out my website: [link] or DA gallery!

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK why the hell does my ear keep throbbing out of nowhere?!?!
ANY FFFFFFFFreakin way! .......fuh.....muh.....guh...AGH OKAY WELL, I'M HURTINGGG AND TALKING IN CAPS LOCK BECAUSE IT MAKES ME FEEEEL BETTER!
I was just about to post this and my ear drum feels like it wants to explode, several timmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmes ow ow ow!
ow...so...sad... I seem to be typing my screams of pain rather than doing it for real....OW...ok..well yes, my life now = computer it seems.
SHIT, ok so, while I still have an ear, I think I should finish...the....description...
I love christmas eve, christmas eve = my family, which also = mainly my cousines..cousins........SP?! CUZ'S whatever!
RIGHT! So I every christmas eve since I was born I've been going to mumu's (that's grandma in Finnish y0) OW.....THIS IS THE REAL MEANING OF RANDOM, YOU STUFFING EAR I HATE YOU WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!?! Yes that's right ear.. I hope you can read this.
YEAH SO! When I was younger I was like "Ho shit! Presents at my favorite side of the family!"
Now there's a rule at my mumu's house every xmas eve, where kids under 16 get presents. Me being 17 now, I don't give a damn about present time. lol I never even cared much for the presents now that I really think about it.. See xmas eve was a great day, better than xmas. OWWWW... yeah real great. ANy way.. so... *sigh* yeah any way, especially the past few years I've realised I only like xmas eve so much because i get to spend it with my cousines. I grew up hanging out with 2 of them almost constantly, and I've always gotten on with them easily...Except for one of them, cause she's a girl, and younger than me, and I'm not good at that. But hey.. guys are cool cause they like video games. BUT HEY, I still think she's cool, cause she draws lovely anime. Any way yeah.. I totally love my cousines on that side of the family, they're real great. =\ How embaressing. (STFU, not in an incest way you tools)
Well fuck... christmas being less than 8 weeks away now.. I've been looking forward to it, because I've had a lack of communication with my cousines this past year and a half..
I todaaaaay find out that we're not gooooing to xmas eve for the first time in my freakin life >< because my dad's got a tiff about his brother/my uncle. Fair enough.. He doesn't like the guy for good reasons. He hasn't much liked him for years. But oh great, this year he decides he just doesn't want to see him at all. FAIR ENOUGH AGAIN! But christ.. this means....
NO XMAS EVE WIT YO COUSINES KIER! HO HO HO!
;__; I toooootally wanna cry.. I wont because it seems so silly to me at the same time.. But I am utterly pissed off about this.
I drew this, because I have been wanting to draw something xmasy for acouple of days now, but have refrained from drawing anything because of halloween, and that I may be jumping the gun alittle on the whole xmas thing. But fuck. Screw you're american traditions, we dont DOOOOOOO halloween here. So why should I worry. (sorry my american friends out there, I'm pissed k?)
eh v_v I think I'm starting to go down hill again.. I'm lonely, I miss my friends even though I have shit all in common with them, I miss my cousines cuz they're great friends, and I just want to spend xmas as if it was any normal day. But I cant.. because I maaaaay have my mums stupid side of the family over our place. IF I HAVE THEM SNOTTY LITTLE EXCUSES FOR COUSINES WASTING MY COMPUTER TIME, ohhh.. I will be mighty pissed off, and it will totally top off the shit-comming xmas that's ahead of me. I hate that side of the family. My cousines on that side are either too old or too young. They'd better not come.
Whatever.. my ear's somewhat feeling normal again.. I've had my massively long rant here.. And I've drawn a crappy boring as picture.. No background colour, no crappy little generic anime love heart sitting in the speech bubble, NOTHING. I'm tired and I want to be a kid again TT_TT playing sonic on the god damn sega genesis and master system! Fuck yas all! Don't bother full viewing it, because my shit sucks donkies nuts too much to be worth full views. Don't bother. No flaming. No I don't want to hear your life stories. No more than one set of shading on this ugly fuck picture. No whatever... I dont give a damn if I made absolutely no sense in some sentences, I'm stressing out for my god damn enjoyment, and not yours. Shove it up yer ass. Have a crappy picture, and I'll have my crappy christmas, thank you very much.
Many people here posted here some support pictures for Japan.
Personnaly, I didn't know what to do...
Having had a look in my gallery, I was reminded of this drawing I posted here recently! A nice working girl to support all rescue workers, workers involved in their nuclear difficulties, to support reconstruction and a new future for this country that gave me so much in my artistic and cultural aspirations... Why not ?
Ok, it's not my best drawing, there are not my best colors, but there are my most sincere encouragements...
NOTE :I hope I am not mistaken about my sentence in Japanese ! Feel free to report any errors in this case. Thank you in advance ^__^;
