Hi! This is my first submission to Newgrounds through the Flash Portal :)

I'm sorry it's not an animation ;_; A lot of people online have asked me about the way I color my art, so I just wanted to be helpful :) It's geared toward Beginners with some more "advanced" techniques.

This covers a Cel-Shade Airbrush style that I use (Mostly for my art, and I would use it to color Comic Books too), Actions, Layers, Masks, Flats, Backgrounds and Shading.

Edit: Ohmigosh ;_; Thanks for all the wonderful reviews and votes and the two awards, guys ;_; I'm glad so many of you found this helpful!! :) :)

EDIT 2 (Thank you zuipit!): Here's a link to the lineart to follow along with, Just look for the download button if you're unfamiliar with DeviantArt, then hit "Save As" on your browser :) (For some reason whenever I try to make this into a link it's messing up :/ Just erase any spaces in between)

Back from grayscale?

I downloaded Photoshop just to try this tutorial. However, when I reached the part where I filled in colors, I didn't know how to take the picture out of grayscale, so all my coloring is a shade of gray. Help?
