    Does anybody know of a good site with tutorials for colouring with photoshop? I finished my comic which I colourd by hand and it doesn't translate as well as i would like to computer, so I thought I would bite the bullet & buy photoshop before i did the cover. I got the trial version, but I'm at a loss as to where to start.
    Darn newfangled technology mumbo-jumbo....
    any help would be greatly appreciated :D

    Well, there are alot of ways to do colors. It's really a matter of personal preference. So here are a couple different tutorials to help you out. I hope you find the one that works best for you.

    Also, I believe Josh, one of the fandom's best colorists, had a very detailed tutorial on how he likes to color. Not sure if that's still around anymore.

    yeah, i had one online but after my site was hacked a good while back i lost the files and ultimately the whole tutorial

    i've been meaning to write out a new one [seeing as how i've gotten much better and learned some more tricks] but either ive not found the time or i've just plain forgot :p 


    i keep getting asked and i keep saying soon but xD
    i'm hoping to get some stuff done for it. Maybe when i finish up Beast Wars [dam last issue is taking me forever :p ]

    i do have this [its old and not very descriptive] but its a quick visual trip on how i did cel style :p

    Josh & Coldheart - I have that tutorial saved on my HD. Was it called "Watchmecolor.avi" or something like that? I just watched it about a week ago.

    If you guys need it, and/or Josh, if the file got deleted, let me know and I can do what I can to get it to y'all.

    perhaps not overly informative but still cool to watch i guess, heh
