I started working in grqyscale on a single layer because of you. But i.m still having a hard time with the coloring part because I don.t know exactly how you start asding colors in. I personally create layer maps for each different color after th3 grayscale is done and add gradients to them (gradient maps) but it doesn
T always looks so good and i habe to go back to the shading and edit it or I merge the grayscale with the colors and just paint over reselecting the colors.
My guess is you have another method. Do you like make a diff layer on multiply or other and fill it with one color? Then merge and repeat the process and repaint where needed? I.m rly curious cuz i could use a simpler technique xD something more organized than what i do xD
i like it so much.the colors is os aweasome!
i have one too!
take a look. i hope that help someone^^

So you're always starting with the bright places first?
I use to cell shade and then put the shadows everywhere but that seems harder than your technique.
I shall try it one day :>

Amazing piece and well done on the step by step, you can clearly see the Changes done. I know you probably have many other things to do but it would be great if you could add what brushes you used etc. Thx!

How do you add colors? I mean, from gray to color and then multiple colors maintaining the values? What different layer 'modes' do you use?
containercore's avatar
Overlay or color in layer mode :)
