01: Make line art as you like

Drawing brush used as line art can be any. let's draw with your favorite brush(es)!
This section tells you my drawing style with use basic pencil brush. (see Extra section to make pencil brush)

Create a new layer to separate sketch and line art
Untitled Drawing by 0xconfig
Enter any name, check the type it is Alpha value only and change color (it's just to distinguish layers)

Before go to coloring, merge two line art layers by checking

02: Make color layers

There are some patterns of making color layer. 
2018-01-31 19-48-29 by 0xconfig 2018-01-31 19-49-56 by 0xconfig
One character in single layer <--> Separate layers as parts
If layers are separated as parts, it's easy to change part color(ex: red hair -> blue hair) so if you want to make many coloring patterns or still cannot decide character coloring, you should separate them. This times is made with single layer.

2018-01-31 19-43-05b by 0xconfig
Fill outline of parts first, click the space with fill tool to fast painting.
We might have to take some processes with own hands to paint finely because fill program of AzPainter isn't so smart than other painting software.

2018-02-03 14-14-37b by 0xconfig
To change color by painting from above, use Keep Alpha value option by layer window.

At the end, use Adjustment of RGB, Level, HSV to fix coloring.

03: Shading

Make a grayscale layer for shading.
Similar to section 01, check two color layers (uncheck from other layers!) and merge them to a new Grayscale layer. then change color to white since most shading layers are used in Multiplication blend mode.
2018-02-03 15-27-27 by 0xconfig
Paint shades with keep alpha value option, and make stereoscopic effect of dragon scales and items
2018-02-06 13-35-51 by 0xconfig 2018-02-06 15-12-29 by 0xconfig
When you make a picture that has depth, back side doesn't need fine stereoscopic effect much because all of screen would have confusion if shaded in back side finely. Make finely only front side such as dragon's head and the kid.
Paint shades while checking by switching layer mode Normal to Multiplication.

After shading was completed, change layer type Grayscale to Full color and adjust coloring with use Level/RGB adjustment!

04: Lighting

Lighting is processed like a shading. This layer filled by black, and set in Screen mode. then add some highlights.
2018-02-08 22-46-29b by 0xconfig
This layer doesn't make me know well completed image if set Normal mode so I progress it with keep Screen mode. Addition is also okay but it is stronger than Screen. Choose modes as you like.

While blend with shading layer and check, basic painting was completed!!

configureBandage-32 by 0xconfig

05: Something(?)

This basic painting image makes me feel too vivid. I decrease saturation by put an Alpha value only layer between shading and coloring. (If you feel this good at now, this process doesn't be needed)
And this section will introduce skills that I often use to make it looks well!

Copy by a Shading or Lighting layer and change layer type to Alpha value only, and change color as you like(blue is cold, orange is warm. green is natural)
2018-02-09 01-29-50b by 0xconfig
Draw forgotten shoelaces on Line art layer and change line color to brown (I had planned to draw this with different style...)
2018-02-09 00-32-58 by 0xconfig
Make such layer and set on above of Line art layer with Softlight 50%

Extra: Brush customize

It's an introduction of brushes used in this tutorial:

Splash and Blot can be used in painting water, starry sky, blood, traditional style art, and many effects:

Since I received request about way of use Finger and Blur mode, I write here what I think how to use them.
Basic smoke(or fire) tutorial with Finger mode and a way of Blur mode:
Z321 Fingersmoke by 0xconfig Z322 Blur by 0xconfig

New Universe by 0xconfig  Be the wind by 0xconfig
Finger and Blur doesn't have basic setting (pressure/random/water/brush shape) excluding size and density but texture and ruler can be enabled with option window so setting them will bring you many ways of expression!
(In fact, I don't use them often in illustrating basically. Those function may be able to help you at abstract art or realistic painting)

My recommendation of shortcut keys:

This is for Lefty user so it's may not useful for Righty.

Thank you so muuchFlower dance  What do you want kind of painting style to learn? or just usage? I want to make tutorial for overseas if I have time!
SilverWolfXZ Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2018
some tutorials about basic shading/coloring/blending would be great ^^  im using azpainter 2.1.1 xD sketch and line are ok; but for shading/coloring i feel it's hard, especially with blur tool or finger tool compared with those tools on Mypaint or SAI (maybe becuz i dont know the right way :D )
More specific, i want to know how you color in "The testflight"
Thank you xD
