PhotoShop - Coloring

|Here you will be taught how to color inks
using photoshop. First you will need to go
to google or anywhere else and find a image
||First open the sketch that you would like
to color. I chose an Iron Man sketch done
by Sam Liu. Once you have it open, go up to
Image > Adjust > Levels. Move the middle bar
to the left till the image is black enough.
Once your done with that, clean up the smudge
that occured from doing that.
||First thing is you need to do is set the
sketch layer to multiply. Next, go to layer
new layer and set this layer underneath the
original sketch. Choose the color you want
and color it in with the brush tool on 100%.
Dont worry about going over the black lines
cause it won't matter. Next, once your done
with one color, make a new layer and set this
one underneath the first color layer and color
the same way.
Keep making new layers for every new color.
What I have so far is shown below.
||After you have all the colors done you want
to add some shading. Usually the sketch is
already shaded but you just wanna touch up
on it. Go to the dark spots of your sketch
and color in the with black. Make sure your
brush is between 5-10%. I find it works best
that way. Again make a new layer for each
colors shading. This step will not be as fast
as the others. Its going to take time and
||Once you have all the shading done, you
want to move on to highlighting. This is where
your going to have to expiriment on which
colors make the image stand out and shine
the best. For mine I chose a more whiter yellow
for the yellow layer and for the red I chose
a red-orange color. As like before you want
a new layer for each new highlight on each
color. This step as well is going to take
a lot of time and patience.
||Once you have that done and it looks all
good you just need to add the finishing touches.
My final image is below. Hope yours is better
