How to become a better colorist? Part 2
Hey hey,
Another bunch of hopefully useful advices. I will probably collect it all, make some nice pics and share it as a tut, but don't have a clue when. Probably on my vacation in August.
Wait, I was supposed to get some rest then :-) Oh, well.
Ok, so:
Don't be afraid of experimenting! Use overlay and multiply layers over the one you're working on, with different colors to see how it affects the look of your coloring. Use even dodge and burn sometimes, with different ranges (Highlights, Midtones, Shadows etc), but don't overuse it and don't use it as a main tool of your shading. Rather to highlight some element (works well with metal parts) or to add contrast. Use photo filters. Use adjustment layers. Photoshop is a powerful tool! You can be surprised of the result you wouldn't think of on your own. If you're afraid of spoiling your precious drawing, duplicate layers before experimenting or make a snapshot (the icon in the middle on the bottom of History window in PS. Saves a current

How to become a better colorist?
Hey guys and girls. Today something especially for you. Some useful tips from coloring artist.
Some of you asked me about tutorial. I really wanted to write one but they are so time consuming.
So let's start.
1. Make good flats at the start. Use polygonal lasso tool in Photoshop and then Paint bucket tool, it's the most accurate method. Filling areas with brushes is wrong, believe me. You will swear to gods and scream out loud trying to later fill all these tiny holes you didn't notice white painting flats with brush.
Of course don't stick to this advice too much. If you have a bunch of tiny elements it's obvious that it's better to color them with hard brush than to use lasso, especially the polygonal one
My way of doing flats is to make every particular color/character on a separate layer. For example, having two girls, sky and clouds in the picture, I make 3 groups: background, girl1, girl2. Then in each group I make layers for: sky, clouds, skin, hair, shirt, jeans... etc. May look

10 Tips to Improve your Digital Art
A while ago I posted some tips on how to improve your art. While that article was rather general, this one is an addition to it, focusing on digital drawing and painting – so make sure to read both.
It's made for beginners, so it's just really basic stuff. I hope it's helpful!
1. Get a tablet
Of course there are artists who create beautiful pictures with a mouse, but trust me, drawing with a graphics tablet is more natural and a lot easier once you're used to it.
Tablets have one big advantage over mouses: Pen pressure. Depending on how hard you press the line gets thicker and darker or thinner and lighter, similar to a real pen on real paper. I'd recommend getting a small, cheap Wacom tablet to start out. 
Also make sure your tablet always has the newest drivers installed! You can download them on the Wacom website.
