Step 1

start out with a line art


Step 2

fill the background with blue

IMPORTANT NOTE*: Always add new layers for different colourings/parts. This makes colouring easier, as well as erasing :D

lol, you can see the the BRS screen capture thing (don't like this program)



Step 3

add clouds, and shades


Step 4

fix and erase the part that covers the person

IMPORTANT NOTE*: always have the line art layer on top of all layers. This would not lead to colours over lapping the lines!


Step 5

gives this person a light skin colour

Personal Tip: I had the background in blue so I can see the colours being filled. If I left the background in white/in clouds, it would hurt my eyes (too bright), or disrupts me from colouring.
Do so by clicking the "black dot" beside each layers to set them as invisible



Step 6

add light skin shades


Step 7

darker colour is used to shape out the face


Step 8

fix and erase the "get in the way parts"


Step 9

wants to give this person a light yellow hair =.=

start with a light yellow colour


Step 10

add hair shades


Step 11

fix, add details/shine to the hair and erase "get in the way" parts


Step 12

the skirt part :D
start with a light black colour and then add shades to it!


Step 13

fix and erase


Step 14

since the clothe is white, jump right into shades!


Step 15

fix/add details and erase!


Step 16

add blue


Step 17

add shades/details, and erase!


Step 18

red tie!


Step 19

add shades and details XD


Step 20

Colour in the eyes and set all layers as visible!!
This is the overall colouring of the drawing O.O"

Almost done :D


Step 21

adjust the opacity of layers so the colours could look even


Step 22

Add some finishing touches and done!

Personal Tips: I move the finishing touches' layer above the line art so that it can show over the lines :D

I hope this helps!
