Hi people. This is a tutorial about how to colour a grayscale piece. Many people have asked me for this, so here it is. There are MANY many -I can't stress that enough- many other tutorials (video tutorials even) about this, by more experienced people also. You might want to check those too. But I spent the first day of this New Year working on this, because I want to help others as others helped me, like *SicilianValkyrie , who gave me some tips.
I really hope it's useful.
Comments more than welcome!

I'm having some huge problems with Color layers while following this tutorial. When I want a light color, it's too saturated. When I want a dark color, it's too bright. Sometimes it works, but most of the time it's a gamble. How do you make the program "create" exactly the colors you want while doing this?

I don't really understand your question. The program doesn't create anything. You choose the colours you want.

Hm, this was a very old comment. I understand these layers and colors a little better by now.

Sorry I didn't answer in time. I get a lot of messages daily, and I lose track sometimes.

Hola.
Gracias por los elogios. Hacer un tutorial me lleva un laburo terrible, pero pasarlo al español no creo que sea tanto trabajo. Apenas tenga un rato me pongo a hacerlo y lo subo al grupo.
