Tutorial & demo artwork by *kelly1412
editing by ~Vahnati

My daughter little Azula (c) Avatar: the last Airbender, Nickelodeon

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Finally I made this tutorial! (and longest one I've ever done)Took me sooo long... Orz... Thank you for your waiting so patiently!
If it can give you an idea of digital coloring, or help you speed up your drawing process, then it was worth the effort.


This is just a personal way in which I do cell style coloring that I am sharing with you, but it's definitely not the only way, nor the best way.
I think the key steps in the tutorial are steps 5 and 6
A tablet is not a necessary requirement for trying is out.
Any question you met when you tring this out feel free to ask.



Thanks sooo much for Vahnati, who was so kind as to take the time out of their infinitely busy day to help clarify my English!!
I uploaded a new version today (5th May). it should be more clear now. please click the Download button to veiw the full size image.
full size: 2900x1850


Good luck to everyone who is practicing drawing or making fanart at the moment~

* the coloring time for the above out come is about 45mins
20min--base color
10min--shad
5min--shad color adjustment
5min--face adjustment
5min--final touches

Lineart for practising and completed work

Have you click the download button? I thought 3000x2000 is a quite big resolution, is that's still not enough?

It's cool to finally see the tutorial. It looks like you put a lot of effort into it. Though I don't have photoshop and use paint instead so it's different to what I use. But the concept still applies. Thanks for the tutorial.
