That came out super awesome Gumby, you gotta teach me how you're doing that coloring, it looks epic.
Well okay. After doing the lineart, I used an auto-fill function Dave taught me and just get in the base color. Then I duplicated that layer twice and made one darker and one lighter (Stole this from Dave too). I also tinted the shade color towards blue and the light color towards yellow (refer to the image attached). At this point I will mask out the two duplicated layers and start shading, you can do this by clicking the little button with a square and a circle inside of it called "Create Layer Mask", then you fill the whole layer black, and start painting with white color. If you want multiple steps in the shading (such as I did on the turtle), you can paint with a grey color first, then paint over the extreme shades with white. I used a rounded square brush which I learned from an artist Cloudy linked me to. Later I maybe color the lineart and/or add shines and effects
That's basically it. I tried to get it as smooth as possible on the evolution thingy.
