» download my brush set «

I made an animated GIF of my coloring process, in response to several askbox requests I’ve received. Someday I’ll make a proper tutorial, but for now here’s a basic breakdown:

1) Sketch the design loosely with a small pencil brush. 2) Establish the basic color scheme with a large chalky brush, 50% opacity/flow. 3) Add some bright back-lighting to bring out the forms. 4) Refine forms with a smaller brush and color the line art to blend it in, using the “lock transparency” tool. 5) Overlay a photo texture and add some glows to create subtle hue shifts.
