Hey, and I'm glad you like it. I use to use my small Bamboo tablet, like with the Doctor Whooves pic, but for this one I use my Cintiq. Truthfully, I'm still relatively new to coloring, too, in that I haven't done it that much and I'm red/green color blind. The way I go about choosing my colors is lots and lots of reference material and the eye dropper tool if I'm not sure about a certain color. A lot of people first render their image out in grayscale first then put flat colors onto (which I'm going to try on my next one) by I treated this as if it was actual oil or acrylic paints. Dark to light with lots of color layering.

I have a special brush I use as my main tool got from a friend with hardness set to 50%, opacity to 30%, flow to 36%, and spacing to 24%. This lets you build up the layering where value is concerned and also gives the image a nice textured painted look. To smooth it out a bit, reduce the hardness to 0% and spacing to about 15% and lightly go over it.

I use Photoshop CS5 and when I add on to it, most of the time it stays on the same layer (master layer), but then eventually turns into several. top lighting that pulls everything together is on a separate layer set to overlay or soft light.

Hope this helped.

I work it exactly as if it is oil paints. Dark to light building up the layers.

Hi. Love your art very much. I'm very new to digital and am struggle quite a bit to wrap my head around certain principles, particularly the color blending process. I've tried lots of approaches, but I just can't seem to get the desired effect. How specifically do you blend the colors together to where the transition lines almost disappear, giving the image a lovely smooth look (especially in the face)???

Anyone who knows please tell me.

Thanks
