There are a ton of different tutorials out there in the webz. Shouldn't be too hard to find one to show you the basics.
But I can actually give you the majority of it right now.
After you have your flats set to the midtone colors you want to use. Create a new layer above the flats, set that layer to 'Multiply', and color pick a light-mid purple color.
Use your hard brush and eraser to add and subtract shadows. Try to be very loose at first and then go back and refine them. Get messy with it, have fun trying different brushes for different effects(hard, soft, round,textured,ect).
Yeah. Most tutorials will have you fill the layer with the color and then make cuts to bring out the lighter areas. I found it's more intuitive for me to use the brush to just add the shadows and the eraser to refine them.
Oh, and remember to turn off the opacity on the brush/eraser. It's easier to block in shadows in one pass that way
This is great! I'd say you nailed it Big success, you have a good eye for it. These are great lines too! Perfect for practice, nice, simple and clean. I can't wait to see what else you come up with, colors are where I struggle so you've been a big inspiration
Great job on this one and I think this is the best one I have seen so far on using my inks for color practice. I love the differences between the stone hand compared to the soft flesh of Hellgirl's body versus the metal on her foot, belt and gun. Great work and hope to see more of this kind in the future. Keep an eye in the next week or so of my finished inked version of Jimbo Salgado's Ghostrider on a horse.
I am 3/4 the way done with it and at 6 hours of ink time. I think I need another 3 or 4 hours before I am done and then there is the scan time and clean up time. Hope to see more of your color work in the future because it is great.
