As progress shots were requested, I figured I would toss this up. The Leigh Rear image from CG start to finish, a good one to go with since it is so simplistic. begins with solids on lineart and goes from there, very self explanatory. Gives a good idea about how I CG in Painter about 1/2 of the time. I sometimes go from lights to darks, and sometimes do in betweens. It depends on how I feel when I begin, really, and if I am painting 100% digitally or not. Before this gets too wordy, it was drawon on typing paper, with solids and BG done in Photoshop and all the rest done in Painter.

I always wondered how you colored.

Looks awesome, just wondering, which tool do you use to shade?
Airbrush? Brush? Other? :V

Yeah haha, sorry for that, a friend explained to me that painter has these brushes named after traditional medium heh.
I didn't knew that because I'm not familiar with painter and thought you were making fun of me or something >XD
Again, sorry for that, stupid misunderstanding :)

Thanks for sharing your coloring technique. I've been wanting to color in my mecha for some time but have yet to start, I was gonna do the coloring the traditional way using colored pencils, but now I see how you do it I might try CGing it. I use ArcSofts' PhotoStudio which is almost similar to PhotoShop I think but possibly with a different user interface system. Thanks again for sharing you tips.

As though I didn't already love the piece, now I can see the procedure that you used to make it.

Can I just worship you now or something? Wouldn't that be easier than continually ranting about your awesomeness?

Amazing! What kind of brush do you use in Painter?
el-texugo's avatar
Curious... How long took you to finish colouring this?
lydario's avatar
the shading and all that is amazing, but the only part bothering me, is that the area right under her rump, is the same color all the was down her leg... i kinda cant help but thing it should still get darjer yet, as it goes up...

but you may have done that in the original... so...

"round camelhair, low feature and low bleed. That's it~" - so you say... Wow, I simply cannot get an effect like that in photoshop. I've been trying for 5 years. 1/3 way down the tail in step (2). I'm afraid to check how much Painter costs! ^_^;
