Drawing walkthrough [PART 2] by agent-lapin Drawing walkthrough [PART 2] by agent-lapin
This is not a "how to draw and do cool shit" thing


I USE PAINT TOOL SAI
Please feel free to ask questions in the comments
, I'm not the best at explaining things because I do them a bit mindlessly, but I TRY HARD. Again, I'd like the remind that this is my own methods and this isnt like.... this isnt the only way to do things, and all the stuff I say is pretty much my opinion haha. I also toss terms around randomly and probably use them wrong.

I have also kept track of the time it took me in case anyone is interested. The TIME at the end of each part summarzies the time taken for that individual part, and not the time taken since the beginning (you would have to add them up for that). 
I hope you enjoy!

___________

III - BASE COLORS

Three layers - the color layer, the main lineart layer and then green unofficial lineart layer

-OVERALL COLORS

Choice of lineart color - I pick the color for my lineart based on the colorscheme of the character. For the time being, I leave it at that, but sometimes before merging the lineart down at the end, I airbrush over the lineart layer (locked) with other colors, notably warmer colors around the skin area.

Filling the image - either I zoom in and like.. pen the whole outline of the picture and then fill that with the bucket, OR if my lineart was clean enough, I use the selection tool to select outside of the drawing, do (selection > inverse), and then fill the newly selected areas (the drawing).

Marker settings - gyazo.com/92bd8e46b252a2ada3e5…

Colorscheme - I rely heavily on the colors of the character ref, but I always take a few minutes to test variations of the color and to see what fits more with the image. For example, pure black wouldve been too harsh for the border of her top, but using a lighter color doesnt hide the fact that it's black. 

ITS NOT TOO LATE, IT'S NEVER TOO LAAATE - you might be thinking "ohh my lineart is done i cant fix things boohoo". I have news for u, u can. So dont hesitate in fixing shit up if you realise that it's not working out.


-FACE DETAILING

Brush tool settings - gyazo.com/f675973cd569ce97ca48…

This is basically how the whole painting over thing is gonna be going in the next part. However doing this like this lets me take care of teh face without making too much of a mess, and without making them look too.... wait for it.... desaturated.

My recommendations for shading the face is to always think of it globally. Dont think of only one individual feature, but how it works with the rest of the face, how other colors can be brought in, how the connecting areas look like, etc. I think this helps tie the face together instead of having you know... a blob  with random facial features floating in it.

Thanks for the tutorial. I like your coloring technique. =)
Do you know if the settings you use have an equivalent in Manga Studio 5?

Maybe because you might need more practice? I dunno, you dont just suddenly learn to do things by reading a tutorial, you need practice on your back too
It might also be cause my method isnt like yours or youre unused to it, or that it just feels odd

YESS! That part about eliminating pure white is soo important--sometimes we forget, but to an artist there are NO pure whites except for highlights! It's all about cool and warm shades.
I also loved that part about "I say we, but it is actually me. It is an attempt to sound more friendly." That got a laugh out me.
Thanks for doing this!

agent-lapin Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It is quite messy hehehe
but at this point there is not much blending going on so it's totally ok! next part is worse;; ill say it there but I'll tell you now; if you're scared of messing things up, duplicate the layer and hide the bottom one - that way you'll always have a backup if you dont like the result, where you can try another method or try again somehow~

J'ai vraiment hate de voir la suite ! 
J'suis surtout très intéressée de voir comment tu réussis à rendre le line-art de la manière... dont tu le rends. C'est quelque chose qui m'agace dans mes créations, et je n'arrive pas à progresser dans le sens que je voudrais. C'est fort instructif de voir la manière de travailler des autres ! 

Contente de t'avoir découverte c:

Ah HAH!  So that's how your faces always look so softly painted.  This was a very interesting read.  Thank you for posting this, since it gives me lots of new things to consider.

Also, I had to laugh when you talked about the suffering.  I love digital painting, but isn't it awful how sometimes you have this great idea that you think will make the whole piece come together and it turns out to jack up your whole painting?  I swear, half of the time I spend painting is just fixing colors and stupid mistakes. :P

Ahh I dont get that much but i def spend most my times fixing up stupid things; or rather, nit picking at tiny parts of the drawing for hours and wasting my time ;_; it's more of suffering via how tedious it gets! haha
