Thanks! I color all my stuff digitally, using Photoshop. Usually, I color my drawings using a few flat colors (little to none detail work in most cases), and then simply add a new layer in photoshop (set to 'multiply'), with some texture created by scanning an old piece of paper, in order to give the artwork a more natural look. If you are a Photoshop user, it's a fairly simple process, and if not, it's easy to learn. :)

Here's a sample of the type of texture I use:… I also create other textures by making ink wash stains on paper (like this… ), and then scanning then in-- whatever helps achieving a more organic look to the colors.

No problem at all, I don't usually message people back who are just thanking me for watching them or favouring an image they did, but I have to say your style and quality of drawing and inking is exactly what I strive for. Also, I have to ask, a lot of your art I seen that says something like "pen/brush/ink and coloured in photoshop", do you ever do any of your colouring traditionally or is it all done digitally? If your colouring is all done in photoshop than I honestly never seen anybody colour digitally but have the results look so authentically traditional. Keep up great work!
