Colour Dynamics Tutorial

PLEASE NOTE I have not used this method for six years and do not recommend it anymore. It was interesting, but it's hardly intuitive.

I finally finished up the colour dynamics tutorial I had promised, now conveniently available as a Christmas present from me to y'all. Thanks again to Maddy for showing me what the hell paintbrush colour dynamics even are, and to Wicked Sairah for commissioning me. :D

Enjoy, and Happy Chrismahanakwanzakuh!

even if this method is outdated, it's still interesting to see other approaches to the art! :3

I didn't have a tablet and stil managed to create an alright illustration. (Doesn't have the pressure effect for shading but setting the brush style to Multiply created a similar effect).
Thanks for the helpful tute!

I don't actually use Photoshop, but GIMP - yet by following your advice, I realized the program actually had those functions too! ^^;
This might come in handy... Thanks for the tutorial! :)

Good tutorial! Some other people are marking stuff that really is more like a B-roll of their art as a tutorial(usually including a lot of bad spelling), with explanations that don't deserve to be called like that and skipping SO many steps you can't help but feel like an idiot.
But this was really good! Thanks

This was a great tutorial to read through. I have always struggled with advancing myself in Photoshop coloring. This will help out a lot, I think. I'm going to incorporate this tutorial's instructions into the next colored piece I do and we will see how it turns out. Thank you for sharing this. Very informative and very helpful. (Regardless of how old it may be.)

Very good tutorial.
I have learnt a new thing such as the lock transparency, different method for the shadow and highlight.
However, I don't understand with the colour dynamics.
