I tried this and well kimiko-mazuki.deviantart.com/a… the colors turned out greyish and rather doll. How can I create bright colored pictures like thisannria2002.deviantart.com/art/… by using this method?

You can use different colors for the shading. I use either a darkish red or purple in my current pieces. It brings more warmth to the piece. Just try experimenting with different colors and layer modes :)

AH TABBY!! I tried this style of new shading and coloring and it was SOOOOO much easier(by easier I mean less crazy) than the way I was trying to do it!

I had each color on a different layer, and then tried to shade each and every layer separately... This is by far soooo much better!

Thank you so much for sharing! It really helped me ALOT! <3
You are awesome! :D :iconsupertighthugplz:

hahaha that is the way I usually do it! But I found this one out a few weeks ago!!!!! Also if you have SAI you can put the layer on LUMI & SHADE mode and it gives off funky colors ;)
