It's been a while since I've done some cel Shaded stuff or colored anything from Ben Dunn. So, here are the two combined!
I recorded the process for an episode of my Comic Book Coloring 101 series. You can check it out here:

I saw you did Lasso/Airbrush and Cel Shading techniques in comic book coloring 101. a textured brush lesson would be great following those, I love working with it to get that Dave Stewart feel!

Try as I might I just can't seem to make cel shading work right...
Excellent vid and sweet looking finish :thumbsup:

It took me a while to get the hang of it as well.
Watching a lot of anime and picking up books based on anime helped quite a lot.

Thanks for the advice :)

I have a hard time "believing" the shading and highlights of my cel shading attempts so far. 
I am having difficulty keeping my selections smooth edged enough to look good with the hard edge finish of cel shading. I was thinking I could use the pen tool to create perfect curved lines but this would take ages compared to the lasso method.
