While not stalking tumblr, I’ve been:
a) Stuck in the TCG World with my Jmusic TCG and other such things because collecting cute graphics.
b) Spamming Twitter (feel free to follow if you know me xD — although it’s mostly just me yelling into the air. I usually follow back if I recognize you :p. )
Disclaimer: This will be a very very basic tutorial! Nothin fancy here!
Tools used: Adobe Photoshop CS5, Tablet, Brush Tool, Eraser Tool
First step: choose which image you want to use! I chose this one here:
Second step: unlock the background layer -> add a new layer and move it under the background -> set the background to multiply
Third step: on the blank layer under your background layer (the manga panel you will be coloring) use the brush tool, pen tool, or select tool (whichever you want! I used the brush tool!) to fill in your base colors!
Forth step: When I see something that’s colored all black (the egg yolk and heart) I usually just add a layer above your background (manga panel) layer, and set the layer to lighten. Then I add colors that way :)
Fifth Step: above your base colors, add some shading! This gives the image more life. I’m no pro at lighting, so I usually just shade where ever I think looks good OTL
Then you should be finished! You can view the final result here
I hope this mini tutorial on the basics of manga coloring help you guys get started! It’s really easy and simple to do!
a support group for people who started saying YAAAAAAS ironically and now can’t stop
I should stop being lazy with this:
1. What’s your name?
2. When’s your birthday?
3. Where are you from?
4. Do you have a crush?
No actual crushes. MY LATEST CELEBRITY CRUSH IS BENI BECAUSE SHE IS GORG AND MY QUEEN.
5. What’s your favorite colour?
Purple. If you haven’t figured that out, we probably don’t know each other very well xD.
6. Write something in caps
7. Got a favorite band?
Right now it’s the brilliant green since I’ve been listening to their old stuff while making decks for my JMusic TCG (http://rockin.so-bad-boy.net).
8. Favorite number?
8, because like Mousey, I’m also a raging narcissist.
9. Favorite drink?
Mango juice~? :3
