Soft shading coloring style by GDBee Soft shading coloring style by GDBee
Finally got this done! The picture this was used with was submitted, like, 4 days ago and I finally got around to finishing this ughhhh =_=
Long picture! Click download for better viewing
-----
I was getting asked frequently on how I colored and what techniques I use (I'm flattered! You guys are going to make me cry! ;A;). It's nothing special, just basic everything. I'm not much of a teaching person, so it might not be all that effective, but I hope it helps at least a little!
Photoshop was used for this entire picture.
Thanks for viewing!


whoa this was front paged for like a second wooooowwwww *_*

Amazing!! one question though, I'm new with the whole digital art thing and I was wondering what tool you use for blending the colors.

For photoshop I just blend with the brush I'm using at that moment, more than likely hard-round brush. Lowering the flow/opacity makes blending a lot smoother/easier :D

I am also curious. I know that there is a blending tool... But they didn't say that was what they used, and if they did, what settings?
