HOW TO LAZYCOLOUR THE ERDGEIST WAY by Sir-Erdgeist HOW TO LAZYCOLOUR THE ERDGEIST WAY by Sir-Erdgeist
Since you guys wanted to see how I colour, here you go!
It's more of a process thing than a tutorial though lolsob

I hope my writing isn't too illegible lmao
not sure if i'm gonna put this in scraps later
I actually drew something else today, but I'll wait a few days before postin'! midterms are coming up lolsob

And this is basically just how I generally go about colouring; it is by no means the best way or even the right way, but it's pretty fun! I hope it...somewhat helps LOL

btw I use Paint Tool SAI
and btw happy thanksgiving, fellow Canadians!
'later, dudes



Finished drawing:

WHY DO WE COLOUR THE SAME WAY BUT END UP WITH TOTALLY DIFFERENT LOOKING ART
TELL ME WHY YOURS LOOKS SO COOL WHY /grabs shirt collar

Whoaa, we have similar colouring processes?! Neat!
haha I noticed you use light colours that are easy on the eyes whereas I have this tendency to use...HORRENDOUSLY CLASHY AND BRIGHT COLOURS

:iconfinkko:
finkko Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012
but that's what makes yours so speshual and interesting though
I ignore complementary colours way too much. I could do a lot with learning from you ;'D THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH CLASHY BRIGHT COLOURS.

Sir-Erdgeist Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I COULD LEARN FROM YOU-- i don't even know what complementary colours are lolsob
I just choose whatever flashy colour I like, awwyeah--
i wanna see some clashy bright drawings from you now!

finkko Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012
um complementary colours are just colours that compliment each other really, like yellow and violet, red and green, etcetc, blends to give brown (I never took art classes so this is the best explanation I can give OTL)
BUT CLASHY BRIGHT DRAWINGS ARE A SPECIALITY OF YOURS I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW TO IMITATE ;A;

So basically just colours that look good together but look funky when blended? Sweet! Thanks!
Just follow this 'tutorial' and you will colour like I do-- loljk I DUNNO MAN JUST CHOOSE EYE-BLINDING COLOURS

You lost me at base colors and base shading. . .
Skill level: Beyond rainbows

Your coloring is always so magnificent @ o @ //bows at feet :iconoelplz:

Sir-Erdgeist Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
OHMAN SORRY LOL
But if it helps, shading's pretty easily done using any colour on the 'Multiply' blend mode or dark colours on 'Overlay'.
But I'm always discovering new lazy ways to colour by just fiddling around with different settings, aha

Thanks a ton!

It depends a little from person to person, I suppose; I personally find it difficult to work in any program other than SAI now, but that used to be the case for me with GIMP!
