Wow, after seeing your linework, your colouring is even more impressive!
Question: How do you colour your traditional work digitally so beautifully? Do you trace or convert your lines into digital and then work layered, as usual?
I've been wanting to, well, learn to colour, and considering my traditional work is usually best, I've wanted to use that. However, I also have been wanting to practice digital colouring, so I've been looking for an easy method to make that work. ... Which I'm not sure I'll find, considering my traditional work is quite sketchy and virtually impossible to transpose, if that's the only realistic way to do it. Hence why I'm asking you! \o/
The only way I've found my style of coloring to work is if all of your lines are closed. Because I mainly use fill bucket. I also do not trace over my traditional micron pen lines digitally. They are the same lines. I just adjust the contrast and such so that there are no smudges and the lines are clean. Then I simply fill them in with color, and use brushes for other areas I want to highlight or shadow. I never "draw" on the computer because my lines end up a scribbly mess. So I only color. xD I also use Phototop Elements 7.
