Photoshop Lineart-Coloring Tut by Kuitsuku Photoshop Lineart-Coloring Tut by Kuitsuku
This tutorial is also available in French: [link]
and in German: [link]


Tons of people asked me to make a tutorial for line art and coloring in photoshop, so here you go~ =3

A few people have requested a Flash drawing tutorial too, so maybe in the future.

This tutorial was made in Photoshop CS2 but it should work as far down as Photoshop 6. All the tools I used are the same in those versions.

Remember, this tutorial shows the way I color. I'd suggest experimenting with this process until you get a result that's nice and easy for you to do. Add more layers of shading, throw in some lighting, go crazy and come up with a style unique to yourself. ^^

To answer questions a lot have been asking:
* I draw with a Wacom Graphire 4 tablet.
* I didn't use the pen tool in any of this. That's...pretty much the point of the tutorial, to get around spending a lot of time on the pen tool. 8D If you don't have a steady hand or your lineart comes out too wobbly, keep practicing. There's nothing more convenient and time saving than a steady hand in drawing.

I just want to thank you for this tutorial. I'm not good as you but with your tutorial I managed to colour the outlines and shade in some colours also adding some gradient effects. I'd love to be good illustrator as you but I need to polish up my skill. I'm struggling to do the outline with size 3 brush though. I hope you can give me some tips with that. It look crap after I've done the outlines with a wacom bamboo pen tablet pad. I have to use 0.5 graphic pens and straight scan, jpeg transfer to photoshop. Anyways cheers and keep up the great work! Love your art works!!
