I think I don't have to say very much 'cause everything is written on the picture.

If you have questions, let me know ^^

Can you explain the line-art steps again? I'm having trouble doing it for myself.

Sure.
a) It's necessary to have no alpha-channel for the layer otherwise the erased parts in c will gett transparent and you would have to re color it with white which makes the borders (which you get by shrinking the selection by 1 or 2px in c) look unclean (at least to me xD)

b) This step is for things like the clouds which you can see on the left example picture. The red line is my addition on the second layer. Now you could ask "Why can't I draw it just on the original picture?" I believe it's easier this way because you cann correct much more easier than drawing it into the picture. If you made a mistake you would need to be careful not to erase the original lineart and that's why I suggest to first draw it into a second layer. When finished you can merge both.

c) Select black areas, shrink the selection by some pixels (so you get a border-line) and then start erasing.

Or is something else unclear?

Alpha channel is a 'overall-layer' to add transparency to your picture. I'm not quite sure if it's the same name in Photoshop but the differences shouldn't be that big ^^

Really, I thought that you're using Photoshop. So what is the program that you use in coloring? because it seems very similar.

It is called GIMP. ^^
It has almost the same tools than Photoshop and the only different (besides of the layout and the controlling xD) is: it is free for everyone ^^

Freut mich. Wobei ich denke, dass ich es nicht sonderlich anders als andere mache (wobei ich mir das so komplett selbst beigebracht habe ohne es so erkläart zu bekommen. Habs halt Schritt für Schritt gelernt *sich an die erste Colo erinner*)

Na du machst schon Sachen anders.
Ich zum Beispiel habe meine ganzen Farben unter der Ebene, mit den Outlines. Deine sind soweit ich verstanden habe drüber.
Auch schattierst du vollkommen anders als ich ^^

Seiji-Murayama Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Richtig. Bei mir sind die Outlines ganz unten und ich mach immer wieder neue Ebenen oben drüber, die ich mit Multiplizieren so über das Bild lege.

Hätt' ich nicht gedacht. So kann man sich täuschen, aber mich würd interessieren wie du schattierst. ^^

Ich mach nen extra Ordner wo alle Schatten reinkommen gaaaaaaanz oben, über allen. Und ich stell den Ordner auf ~30% Deckkraft und mal einfach nur mit schwarz drinne xD
So kann ich jeden Teil einzeln schattieren, aber es wird nicht dunkler nur weil sich die schatten überlagern ^^
Und da ich immer den gleichen basiston nehme, bleiben die Schatten auch im gleichen Farbspektrum ^^
