Similar Deviations
Hardly a tutorial but it's the best I can do at the moment. It does not go into specifics, I could write a book if that was the case.

After hearing requests from many people, here is what I can provide.

Download if the text appears too small.

Edit: deleted other... I seemed to have uploaded two

A simple description of some of the more useful features of AzP

More tips can be found in the program's tips.txt, but it's in japanese, so I couldn't read it ^^;

AzPainter2 download: [link]
AzDrawing2 download: [link]

EDIT:

I'll add more here. If I have enough to add I'll edit update the image
> tick shape (in the tool window when using pen) when making really thin lines; it makes it look nicer and less sharp

some limitations
> azp can only make canvases up to 4500pixels
> no rotate
> resolution is permanently 72dpi - azp is designed for web images

-DO NOT use my stock for commercial or published purposes (other than dA prints) without first requesting and receiving a signed written document with my permission.
-Permission is already given for use in dA prints, so long as the image is reasonably different from the original.

--------------------------------

SOME EXTRA STUFF NOT MENTIONED ABOVE:
Note - these apply to Paint Tool SAI. If you use Photoshop, I might be able to help you as many of these things do apply with both programs, but otherwise, I apologize. If you want individual settings for SAI tools, or just have some questions, feel free to ask!
    1. Lineart
    I usually use the Pen tool to do line art, the size varying on how clean I want to make it. At the moment, though, I'm experimenting with the Ink Pen tool, and I'm starting to favor that more to make cleaner lineart.

    2. Base Colors
    Again, I use a combo of the Pen tool and Bucket tool to fill stuff in. The Hue/Saturation setting comes in handy if you want to experiment with possible base colors.

    3. Shading (dark colors)
    For this, I turn on the "Preserve Opacity" setting on the base color layer and go over shadows with a combo of the Water tool and the Brush tool. I'm a bit of a cross-hatcher, so I keep the Brush tool at a smaller size. Make sure you know where your light source is coming from!

    4. Shading (light colors)
    Same case as above, though I'm a bit more careful when it comes to highlighting, since I'm pretty much working on this all in one layer. Preserve Opacity is still on, though check to make sure you didn't miss any spots.

    5. Effects (overlay)
    I abuse this function to no end, heh. Set a new layer to Overlay over your image and start accenting parts like shadows with a different color with the Water tool and Brush tool. I love using purples, blues, and reds on flesh tones since it produces a nice effect, but feel free to try other colors too. Play around with the Hue/Saturation function as well - you might find something you like.

    6. Effects (luminosity)
    Basically, how to make things shiny, haha. Don't do this too much, but a little white here and there doesn't hurt. Still using the Brush tool, by the way.

    7. And now for some other things. (optional)
    Change the lineart color. Mess with the hue/saturation after you're done. Add a texture. Lots of possibilities for you to toy around with. (:
    As for additional detailing, I usually open a new layer over the whole thing and go over it, disregarding the lineart underneath. In other words, lineart is not my top layer by the end. If you wish to add designs and what not, textures or a simple overlay can help.


--------------------

And that's about it, really.
Probably missed something somewhere, but that's pretty much how I color. This should not be in any shape or form be taken as a standard though, heh. Use this instead as a way to find your own coloring method. (:

This extremely rushed coloring guide was requested by ~BizarroFreak17. I'll probably make a better one in the future, but for now, here's a basic one with simple shapes.

Hope this helps!
