Digital Coloring Tutorial pt.1 by CaptRicoSakara Digital Coloring Tutorial pt.1 by CaptRicoSakara
Many people have asked me how I color my characters, and now I've decided enough's enough! I've decided to update my coloring tutorial. So here, ladies and gentlemen, is my new and improved DIGITAL COLORING TUTORIAL!!! **Taa-da-daa-da-da-da-DAA!** X3
This tutorial will be in three parts. Also for these tutorials, I'll be using :iconpuritylf4:'s Becky the Hedgehog for the whole demonstration! Let's give her a round of applause! :clap: :heart:

This first part deals with making professional-looking lineart and adding in the base colors in PhotoShop 7.0+.
This tutorial is meant to used by mouse users, although I think pen-tablet users are also welcomed.

The file is 900x14400 pixels, and is over 2.7 MBs. This is available in zip file format, since I can't seem to get the file itself to upload - it seems that DA have problems with files with dimensions over 12000 pixels, so that's why it's in a zip file. ^^;
Now all you have to is RIGHT-CLICK on the "DOWNLOAD" button and go to "SAVE TARGET AS..." Once you have it saved, RIGHT-CLICK on the zip file and go to "Extract to folder..." You se should find the large jpeg in there.

I hope this tutorial helps you all out with understanding how to draw and color in my style. If you have any questions, just note me, or e-mail me at chrisrgay@yahoo.com.

TUTORIAL PARTS:
- Tutorial Part 1: Lineart & Base Coloring
- Tutorial Part 2: Shadows & Additional Shades
- Tutorial Part 3: Highlights & Finishing Touches
- My Glowing Effects Tutorial
