Some work steps of this piece:

This "from grey to color"- technique is very helpful when you have no color scheme in mind first and want to concentrate on the impression of the values of all elements.

I hope it helps somehow.

do you do all your concept pieces with the same process?

Mostly it's similar. I start with a drawing, then do a block in and at last I color it. Though, sometimes I start with greyscale and sometimes directly with colors.

Do you use color layer at full opacity ?

:icontimmi-o-tool:
timmi-o-tool Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2014
Yes, but I paint it with opacity control on pen pressure.

Also, does it matter what level saturation the color is at? Or whatever looks good to you? Really appreciate the response..thanks.

I usually take a higher saturation and control it with the pen pressure to make more saturated areas more saturated and less saturated areas less saturated.

Just color layers for the most part. And a bit overlay here and there.

Do you ever work with just color?
No grayscale?

Step one: Start with an amazing drawing you will never be able to make.

Step two: Add fills.

Step three: Apply magic.

Step four: Bang your head on the keyboard for not understanding the tutorial. :iconsobplz:

>Thanks, I just color it with a color layer. Here and there I adjust things with some contrast settings or with a multiply/overlay layer.

Thanks for tutorial sucka! Now I'll steal you're method and poach all your work! Just kidding of course, I couldn't even if I wanted to. Thanks for the tutorial, I have trouble colouring grey scale, do you work on a separate layer and use overlay or is there a much more affective method?:)

:icontimmi-o-tool:
timmi-o-tool Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2013
You're welcome dude.
I posted it here, so people can steal it, so don't worry.
Also it's not like I invented to use a color layer to color greyscale images.

Like I said, I work on a seperate layer and use the color mode instead of overlay.

Amazing drawing and interesting technique. :heart: How do you overlay the colours? I know many are used to do the grayscale first, but I never looked up how the next step is done.

i'm curious about what happens at a certain step in your process...
when you're doing the flat colours in step 2 she has a dark solid top on
but by step 5 it's a white top.
does that mean that after deciding what colours you wanted to use you eliminated that dark coloured top
or is part of your process that you can color on a layer above or below step 2 to enhance the shading and such?

i was just asking because I can understand how the grey to shades to colour works for something like her legs shorts etc.
it's just the shirt that's throwing me.
super curious, is all.

The reason why I changed the value of the shirt is I decided that a lighter shirt would add some contrast to the rest of the clothes and look more interesting. The same goes with the pantyhose and the pants, I found it would look nicer this way so I changed it. It often happens that I decide things like that in the later process. So that's not a rendering technique or something, just design changes.

okay cool.
i was just wondering if it was changed or if it was a necessary step in the process.
