CA I need your help. Hi my name is Micaiah and I've have avoided Photoshop for to long. I got some Ideaof how photoshop works but mostly I don't know the first step into what to do with the picture after I scan it in Photoshop.pld: Most of my attention would be focusing on coloring flesh tones, and blending. Any tips, trick, links, or critiques would be much appriecated!
uuuurm....hehe, well theres a whole lot you could do....mabe for starters try puting this on one level, ad a "colour" or "hue" level (in the level blending options.....any of this sounds unfamilier just go to photoshops help index and it'll tell you where it is) and then put colours into that level to change the shades. There are a billion and one things you can do in photoshop...go look for basic tutorials-there are loads both here and elsewhere on the web. Good luck-its worth the frustration and annoyance once you get into it
Hello Micaiah, yes i'm having some tips. Lets have some fun too.
1. Dont worry
Try to find some references for your colour work. For example:
Lucky (Jubilee) / bedevilied (Bananaboy)
runaways (Jubilee) / runaways (Bananaboy)
from Jo Chen
Look arround for Details, like these from Jubilee.
This is a digicam picture of one of my sunglasses / and this is a foto of one of my daughters teddies.
2. About not using your pictur.
Thats my choise Bananaboy (on this peace i will working in coulour). Feel free to crit.
I believe that we both can learn more from each other, when we are working together.
I cant wait any longer so here are some free sketches.
3. My Detail stuff.
I will used both for the back pack.
4. My general stuff.
5. Next tip is to mirror the first sketch for control
For Vision i used a transparent paper and an original print of the comic Avengers.
6. I had to prepared my sketch for the colour work. So i had printed it out (layed 70% white on a new Layer befor)
For the next step i'd mirrored it again to work on the sunglasses and his eyes.
Okay here we stay, the next steps are for you. Thank you for the inspiration.
7. Thats a screenshot at the beginning of the colour work.
8. First i had to change the picture from Grayscale into RGB
9. Then i choose a colour for the skin ( it'nt very important to hit the exact colour)
10. One new layer for the skin
11. Selection (0) including skin under the hair and the glasses als the shadow. Filled with 100% of the chosen colour.
12. After that i'd set the layer on colour(?) to have look if its fine to me.
13. very important, save
14. and so it will go on
15. Next Layer, 50% Gray and set the layer to 80%.
16. Next layer, next colour, next filter
17. I think i need some of those tribal things for the jacket.
and as Bananaboy pointed out, i'd forgotten some yellow.
18. I think you can imagine the next steps.
Ready with the coulourwork.

Try to IM you too, negativ Maybe its because we arn't online at the same time. Here in Bremen it's Sunday, ca. 21:42 (no A.M.s or P.M.s from me), to become a feeling for the time difference. Looking for the light
"...was...."? and "her"? I allways think as a him of her. Yes she defenetly still doing her thing! Whats about BROM? Do you like his Lucky. Specialy her stockings? At my job i have a caricature from Tina Turner with somme other stockings, do you interested in? One picture from Olivia, with that part of Jubilee i can update too.
I'd updated one tip and some pictures. Have a look.
My fav is Jo Chen too. I'll try to give my picture The look of her Runaway, without loosing the style of the sketch.
One of my personal fav's is John Buscema, so in the Background i will show something from him.

I'll update. but there is a maintenance on photobucket. So i'll use the time or talking about IM. My english is to bad for a life chat i think, unless you'll wait 1/2 an hour for some answers Hope we could stay when we're using this thread to talk.
Okay, here is the update Step 7 - 14. Have fun with it and play around, with the other options in the windows, to look whats happened.
Ready with my first tips, PUH. Its your time now.
Needs jubilee more help from the Banaboy?
