digital colouring tutorial by glittervolt digital colouring tutorial by glittervolt
there have been a few requests for a digital colouring tutorial, so here's one =)

i'll be the first to admit i'm not the greatest at explaining things even though i LOVE to teach people how i draw/paint/whatever so if you have any questions please post them in the comments and i'll do my best to clarify!

i have a question :D when you remove the line art layer, do the colours suddenly look messy and crazy. Idk i usually dwell over filling in the line art so precisely (why I dont use it much XD) but im wondering how you do it? (sorry if this doesnt make too much sense) :D Lovely art

thank you! =] and usually i paint over it rather than just removing it. or, i did when i made this tutorial anyway. lately i've been working with lines more.

but i know some people who just straight up remove it; if you work large enough and fill it in precisely enough you should be able to. i have the same problem as you when i do, it looks pretty messy sometimes without lines hahahah.

Ohh I've never thought about using a soft light layer for simple bounce light, it seems to simple XD

Thank you :3

Your style is so unique and interesting. I love the way you color! Very interesting hair tip as well, I'm going to have to try that.

Can you do this with Gimp?

I don't use the GIMP but I don't see why you couldn't ! As long as you can separate scanned lineart from its white background.
