Coloring Anime Picture
Anime may be nice in black and white, but wouldn’t it be much better in color? Now you can color Anime very easy using a few steps to achieve this result!
Ever wanted to color those boring black and white anime?
Step 1 As an example, I’ve chosen the protagonist from DragonballZ, Goku, which, to me, is the best Anime ever!
Step 2 First we need to create a random background of a random gradient, then place the drawing on top of it and change the blending-mode to Multiply;
Step 3 EVERYTHING we’re gonna do takes place UNDER the drawing;
Now grab the Magic Wand-Tool and select all the pieces of skin on the top layer;
Select your first piece of skin and then HOLD SHIFT to select multiple area’s;
Note:NIF YOU HAVE A WACOM OR A DRAWING-TABLET LIKE ME, YOU COULD ALSO USE THIS.
REMEMBER TO STILL COLOR ON A LAYER UNDER THE LINES…
EVEN THOUGH I HAVE A WACOM, I STILL USE THE MAGIC WAND-TOOL TO SHOW YOU HOW THE RESULT SHOULD BE!
Step 4 Then go to Select>Modify>Expand and expand the selection by 1 pixel;
Note:WE DO THIS BECAUSE THEN THE COLORS TOUCH THE LINES, OTHERWISE THEY DON’T!
Step 5 Do this with all the colors and place them ALL ON DIFFERENT LAYERS UNDER THE LINES;
Step 6 If you want to add some nice shadow as well.
