Well, you gotta find what works with your style.
Personally I think you coloured this picture fine.

You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else.

Awesome job at coloring there! I would recommend if you would look at art101's list of free art programs for any clues. Here's a link to art101's newspost. Hope I helped.

New to digital coloring? But it looks like you've been doing it for years.

You pretty much have the professional standard there. Needing something that Photoshop can't do is... strange. WHO ARE YOU!?!

Ahem.

I honestly don't know what else you can use beyond that.

- Flash is better for cel-shading and it's easier to color if you're more of a cartoonist.
- Photoshop is better for smoother coloring/shading and not as great in cartoon drawings as flash.
- Illustrator is pretty much something you use for creating stuff you're planning on printing on posters, shirts and whatnot.
- I am not very familiar with Gimp, but it's like a much simpler photoshop
- Go to some oekaki that has ShiPainter and try it out. It's simple and easy to jump into, and knowing that it's an oekaki gives you the feeling that you don't really have to put that much effort to make it look good. It's generally just for sketching.

So what exactly are you going for? What type of drawing style would you like to try? Type of coloring and shading?
