That's an awesome idea!  I've tried using the blur or smudge tool and it never works the way I want it too, but this looks amazing!  I'll have to try it out!  :D

This is simply awesome :heart: thaks for sharing the way you draw

do you do it all on one layer? I did that one because I lost my png. file but still loved what I already had so I just finished on one layer.Was difficult but so much fun^^

i asbolutely love your method of colouring! i was just wondering, could you potentially do a tutorial on how you pick your base colours? i have SO much trouble picking colours.

Read about color theory and color contrasts that way you get to know some of the basics behind it.

This is great! I don't do Digital but it does give one a good grasp on color harmony and compliments. The part about reusing colors is also very helpful, and all PS lingo aside, it gives one a good intro onto painting with a restricted pallet.

This tutorial is absolutely amazing
When I draw, I tend to get confused on what I'm trying to accomplish, and my colors end up all over the place. I use the smudge brush, and the final drawing never turns out as paint-like as I'd wanted! But this really helps me so much, thank you Griff!!!

hey! when you mix new colors, do you start out with 100% opacity and then go to 50% or do you start with 50? Cause if I start with 100 and then go to 50 I can't see the new color..
Great tutorial by the way!
Reply
:icongriffsnuff:
griffsnuff Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2011
hm you should be able to see the color if you have 50% opacity if you paint an area with red and choose green and set it to 50% and draw over half the red and some outisde the red, the red area should be a redgreen color and the white around should have a faded green

:icondreamlonging:
Dreamlonging Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2011
ah! I tried to color over the red with 50% red because I kept switching form your dragon tut to your color tut. Thanks so much for your help!
