Scanning and coloring a sketch by Daennika Scanning and coloring a sketch by Daennika
After receiving many emails and notes asking my advices on drawing and coloring in Photoshop I just had to make this and hopefully help all of the growing artists out there.

It's not much, I don't go into detail and did this very quickly so if you have anymore questions just comment below and I'll be happy to reply.

I'm still trying to get photoshop and a pen tablet. TT.TT What pen tablet do you use? I've been lookin' around but I'm still uneducated as far as tablets go.....if you have suggestions of a tablet I could easily hold in my lap and not burn too big of a hole in my pocket, I'm all ears.

I rarely apply a blending mode to the brush tool. Where did you get that in my tutorials?

The Multiply mode is only for certain layers.

Ah, I use GIMP, the multiply tool is how I add shadows.. I saw you said to set the pen to multiply. In my mind that made sense.. lol idk.

I'm curious, does this work with elements 6.0 or do I need to get something like photoshop 7.0?

Well, I dunno... Is Elements 6.0 anything like what I wrote in this tutorial?

I guess you're just gonna have to try it out yourself :)

Alrgiht, I just figrued out it is, but and I've done all the layers, but I hit a snag on the the coloring. How do I make the color on the third layer go under<i/> the lines and not over it, if you can understand what I'm talking about.:blush:

If you made your lines on a different layer than the colors-layer, just move your lines-layer over your colors. Set it to "Multiply" and that should do the trick.

Please could you show me your work when it's done? :)
