Tutorial: Lineart Coloring

This is a thankyou to all my watchers. After 3 years being asked to make a tutorial, it's finally here lol. Yeah a bit late and everyone has probably advanced past this tutorial level, but i hope it helps some artists nevertheless.

I don't enjoy lineart so I'm using this recent one [link] and re-coloring it different from the original.

This is my full process of coloring lineart. I don't always use this process, but these were the same steps i used when coloring the original which can be seen here: [link]

It didn't turn out as well as the original, but i rushed it as much as possible cause i just wanted to focus on the process and it's the 2nd time to color the same thing. This took me about 6 hrs straight to fully write up and color so i apologize for spelling, grammar or just not understandable cause i haven't double-checked.

Feel free to ask questions!

Hmmm, so do you ever start in greyscale? I understand its easier to control your values that way. I myself have always started in color but found my painting were a bit off.

hey, great tutorial! :D I have a small question: what for a canvas do you use usually for your pics? (oh and still another: what's that for a Ps-program)
This is so good!  Thank you.
