DazedPink's Colouring Tutorial by DazedPink DazedPink's Colouring Tutorial by DazedPink
Okay, so you wanted a tutorial? Here's your tutorial! :iconsophisticatedlaplz:
Download for full view!

People have been requesting this for years now, so I finally gave in. I want to apologize in advance for any possible (and most likely) spellings. It took ages to make this, and I had planned to use my camera, but it sucks butt, so I had to scan every single step. :| *brainexplode*

However, I do hope that some of you, will find it helpful in one way or another. This is a very basic tutorial of my colouring, but who knows: maybe I will make a more in-depth one later for any possible tecnique.

Here is the finished version of Una that was used for the tutorial! Clickie here for Una!

Have a nice day, all! :heart:

:bulletblack: Letraset ProMarkers, Staedtler pigment liner 0.05, Hahnemühle Nostalgie paper, Faber Castell Classic Colour Pencils, Winsor and Newton watercolours and Plakkaatverf Goache.
:bulletblack: Background texture by `Princess-of-Shadows
:bulletblack: Una and image belongs to me.

I see you use Nostalgie paper. I absolutely love it for colored pencil but ive had some issues when trying to color bigger areas with watercolor pencils. How is the paper for regular watwercolors? Do you think it works well?

This is extremely helpful! I have the same markers as you but I don't know how to use them very well =S I'll have to try blending the colors better : )
I only wish they had a brush tip, that'd also be helpful as I like my strokes to look natural and they don't come out as good as I'd like because of that.
Thanks for the tutorial!

I love the picture! And I also love the fact that you have finally done a tutorial. I really love the way you color and have never figured out how you do it. Love how the eyes look realistic and glisten. I just recently bought Copic Markers and are trying my best to further my art. Thanks again for the tutorial.

This is great! I can't wait to pull a few of my markers and other supplies out and play with your techniques in my own style. There are definitely a few pointers here that have made me stop to rethink my approach to colour that I can apply even in a digital medium.

THANKS A BUNCH for this!

ProMarkers were the one type of markers I could never quite get the hang of blending with for some reason. But you do a fantastic job with them! I think I might even give them another go :D this was a great tutorial, I love the technique you use for skin, especially.

Thanks a lot for the tutorial, I found it very useful, and entertaining, too :) I loved the "copics are for wannabes" part XDD since I use promarkers too, or I'm trying to, and it kind of annoys me when people think these markers are inferior only because they're not horribly expensive and/or Japanese.

So, thanks again, I'm a big fan of your art and this tutorial was very enlightening :)

Oh yeah, I love how most artists who are going to buy markers are like "zomg since teh rellu c00l artisz use copics, that meens I shood 2! if I buyz them I will becum awsum leik them! >///<"

Riiiight...

I've tried many markers. Copics, tria, promarker and prismacolor. To me the brand doesn't matter. You can do the same with them all. But, that's just my opinion. ;)

Pheuthe Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2011
You're so right :D I've seen a guy with the cheapest, oldest color pencils do the most awesome art, and a kid with copics who couldn't really make it look good even with the "awsumOMGsoKEWL" markers... it's all in the artist :D

Personally I've tried both copics and Letraset markers, since prismacolors aren't available in my country, and I prefer Promarkers :)

Anyway, good luck with art and life, I love your style of drawing and coloring :)

This is very very helpful and neat! You make the coloring of the folds in the dress so easy!

I have two questions :
1. How long would you say it took you to make the picture of Una in total.
2. When you describe how you make the background/texture of the waterpaint, how do you do it without making a splash or having it run down the picture? (ruining the pic) i just dont see how you like made it perfectly behind the person. xD

:icondazedpink:
DazedPink Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
1. Oh god, how long... it's really hard to say, since I stopped for every step to scan. But I guess if I'd done this the normal way (without making a tutorial) maybe like 6-8 hours, from sketch to finish.
2. When I have little space to work with, like this picture, I don't add a lot of water to the colours. I work with a very small brush so that I have full control. :p (I might need to make a watercolour tutorial once, if I get a better camera)

Well written, really? I'm not sure if it's crap or not! It's not always easy for me to write descriptions in english, as it's not my mother language. :|

lol, I understand it not being your first language, but the guide is very easy to follow if you understand what I mean. :) You're also actually not all that bad at writing english. Believe me, there are so many native english speakers that can't write the language nearly as well as you have here. ;)

Oh btw, I am thinking of making some commission examples and I wondered if I could use one of your characters? You don't have to pay me anything, I just thought it would be two birds with one stone - a commission example, as well as a gift to one of the people who always leave me such nice comments. :) And with your permission I would like to use it as an example for my future commission customers.

I had some big ass comment to write about how kewl it is to see how your work comes together, but now I am finding myself thinking... hmmm... maybe I'll try out some letraset markers instead of getting new copics (if my copics don't work anymore XD)

Well of course the preference of markers is a personal choice! :) I personally just prefer Tria over copics, but that's just me. ;)

I've wanted to try tria's for a while tbh... my copics were so expensive when my aunty bought me them, I dread to think of their cost now ^^;;I know I have one set of promarkers at my Dad's which I won in a contest a few years back... hmmm... it might be nice to have a change ^^ And I did like how the colours looked when I gave the small set a try once XD

IMO, you shouldn't limit yourself to one brand of markers! ;) I use two for now, Touch and Copics, but yeah, Copics are very expensive and you can get a similar effect with every brand. It's up to the individual artist! :D

I use copics anywayz, although they haven't been used for about three years v.v;; If they still work when I pop their caps, then it shouldn't be so bad... but, I do have those 10 promarkers lying abandoned XD
