Unpretty badly made tutorial looks bad... but its the content that matter I suppose :iconotlplz: ?

I am sure there are spelling errors everywhere and I am terrible at typographical stuff and graphic design :iconlazycryplz: so plz forgive meh.

A lot of people are asking me to make a colouring tutorial, well honestly I just use photoshop's layer effects to do all the work for me, here are my favourite layer types etc and a little bit about what they do.

With the right tweaking its easy to make effects like these

All made using the technique of correcting then painting multiple times :) And the curves tool which I forgot to add, basically all it does is which part of the curve you grab effect the value its closest to, e.g if you grab the bottom and move it you replace all the black tones in your image with either green/blue/red, you can also use it to add or remove colours accordingly. I always try to make sure there is no back or white anywhere in my images, this means when you do finally use it, its a lot more powerful ( specially with highlights )

*edit OMG *sobsobsobsob* thank for the DD :iconhappytearplz:

Question: Why do you combine SAI and Photoshop? Do you do your main drawing on SAI? Or is there something specifically related to coloring that Photoshop doesn't have?

Thanks for this guide. I haven't tested the different layer effects because it was confusing figuring out which effect would produce what and when it was needed. You make it much easier to understand.

I've been wondering what those layer effects actually did for years. Bless you for this submission. In retrospect, I probably could have used Google to find out but... so many PS tutorials are just crammed with artsy jargon and they're totally incomprehensible. But not this one!

I feel lucky about finding this, since I just recently discovered these color effects and noticed that they're a lot of fun, so thank you for this... ^__^ It was nice to read how does each one of the color layer thingies work technically.

And no, this is not badly made, at least to me, since I love simple tutorials that are easy to understand. Ayy. c:

Really nice job explaining how the different layer types work. Maybe I'll actually use the different types beyond multiply and overlay, haha!

Thanks.  I have to admit, if there's any magic in PhotoShop, it is how intuitive and easy layers have become to work with.
