Tons of people asked me to make a tutorial for line art and coloring in photoshop, so here you go~ =3

A few people have requested a Flash drawing tutorial too, so maybe in the future.

This tutorial was made in Photoshop CS2 but it should work as far down as Photoshop 6. All the tools I used are the same in those versions.

Remember, this tutorial shows the way I color. I'd suggest experimenting with this process until you get a result that's nice and easy for you to do. Add more layers of shading, throw in some lighting, go crazy and come up with a style unique to yourself. ^^

To answer questions a lot have been asking:
* I draw with a Wacom Graphire 4 tablet.
* I didn't use the pen tool in any of this. That's...pretty much the point of the tutorial, to get around spending a lot of time on the pen tool. 8D If you don't have a steady hand or your lineart comes out too wobbly, keep practicing. There's nothing more convenient and time saving than a steady hand in drawing.
