Woohoo! Finally done!
This week's tutorial, as requested by :iconmayelv: explains the process I use for coloring. The artwork took a while to do because of all the detail! Hope you enjoy!

My way of coloring has changed dramatically since I made this. I should do a new tutorial.
But before that I should probably do some color pictures to celebrate 800 pages of Hinata.

Huh. It didn't occur to me to color separate light sources... separately. o_o

Thanks for sharing. I'll try this one day.

You make great, helpful, easy to follow tutorials! Thanks a lot for putting them up!

No problem! Glad you like!
Wow, I've been doing coloring and shading the hard way... I was doing all of my shading like you do your eyes only I was going two or three steps darker and lighter instead of the one step with your eyes. This tutorial made me facepalm more than once and I can't wait until I finish my current lineart project to try this out. Speaking of lineart, I've seen mention of a lineart tutorial that you keep meaning to do, I can't wait for that to happen so I can see what I can do to improve that aspect as well. Thank you very much for sharing this.

No problem! And I'm working on that lineart tutorial. Hopefully I can add alongside video tutorial with that one!
A video that went along with it would be amazing, I like the layout above but sometimes it's just so much easier to absorb when you actually see it happen. Regardless of actually doing a video with it or not, thank you very much for the effort in improving the community, keep up the great work.

No problem! I'm glad it helps.

Is the best tutorial I have seen ever, although I don't understand completely, casually you don't have it in a video? :D
