I could finally finish this after many people asked for a tutorial about my coloring style. So here it is. XD
I hope it's useful for you and that you get all steps. ^_^''
If there are questions just ask here or write an E-mail. :)
And pls let me know if there is something not working, I'll try to correct as soon as possible. I'm also open for a feedback.

IMPORTANT: Works also with CS4, CS5 but NOT with CS6

I have been using the line tool for years to do my lines, but this showed me a few new tricks. Thanks!

Glad it helped you, the tutorial doesn't work for newer PS versions anymore though.

The mysteries of the pen tool
have been solved
one question though, whenever i colour there is this whit line that always comes up like this [link]

There are different ways to solve this. One would be to increase the tolerance of the bucket too.
Select the Paint Bucket Tool and on top now you have its options. One would say "Tolerance" where you can enter a number. Its probably set to a low number now. Try to set 100 or even 200. (0-255 possible)

here's a tip for those who have the first PS, you have to go in to paths (on top of the normal and oppacity) and then click path, cause the stroke path won't show up if your in the layers section :)
