Best tutorial ever!

Could you go into contrast and up it like that as well instead of using levels?
Or maybe even mix both?
Just experimenting, thank you. I love your tutorials.

Sandara do you have any advice on how to tell where light hits and shadows are on a figure??? I feel like that is probably my biggest obstacle right now. I love your work and tutorials by the way.

I tried the same technique, but instead it's traditional! :icondummydanceplz: Turns out I works just as well with coloured pencils!

I don’t understand how you mix the color, I see in that tutorial you use the brush you have but in some step are not shading the brush and in the other the color are blend and mixed really good, I really like your brush set but I do not how mix the color, do you use some opacity specific or a special blending, or mix brush?

brilliant dude... very easy to comprehend... and it's actually a simple process. I gotta get my digital painting in gear now... THANKS for the inspiration!!
hadazuli Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2013  Student General Artist
I have to try this whole "black and white and colour after" thing...
martianink Featured By Owner May 29, 2013
Nice tutorial... I love to see people's process.
Irfarious Featured By Owner May 23, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The output of this one sure is different from most of your paintings. I guess the black and white shading prior to coloring is what is doing the trick. Amazing technique though. I will try to put it to use.
sha-arts Featured By Owner May 4, 2013  Professional General Artist THAT'S what's done. I've never learned this style of painting so I always wondered how the heck they kept the initial B&W when the color was applied afterwards...:)

MsDaemon Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012
Hi there, this is an amazing tutorial, but I always have the same problem coming back :( If anyone could help, that would be really nice! After I've set the layer for coloring to Color, the color I want won't show in the artwork. Perhaps you can see what I mean in this deviation of mine [link] You can barely see the flaming red I wanted for the creature (that's why I darkened the whole picture (it used to be way lighter), that was the only way SOME of the color showed through).
I did the colors in an Overlay layer, so what you see is NOT the Color mode. At first, I tried the layer mode Color to give the creature a dark and saturated red color. Whenever I put some of the color on the layer, my creature would become a bright, dull red that looked a bit like the red you get when using Quick Mask Mode! What happened? What did I do wrong?
Thanks very much if you'd help me! It really bugs me :(

How long does a painting of this size usually take you? And how about a scene with many people, like [link] ? I really love your work btw. And this is a super helpful process/tutorial. :)
