    If you dont draw but look for sketches somewhere else, how do you find them ?

    Well i am kinda in a trouble now, cause i never really draw on my PC i allways chose linearts,sketches from deviantart and till now i have allways found what i wanted, i have 100ts of lineart of anime on my HDD but i am lazy to color anime, the problem is that i dont know what to search, i sometimes just search for" Movie Sketch " on DA and just browse it and with luck i find something i will color , but now i cant find shit.,

    So i need to ask how do you find sketch material.

    And btw sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    Coloring line art may be fun but you'll never get good with coloring unless you study drawing as well.
    Assuming you are coloring as a hobby and looking for ready made line art then you can either google up some images (I just tried "coloring sheets") or you could team up with a partner that will do the lines for you to color (I think that's what they do on most comic books these days...).

    I've seen many such collaborations on DA and you may as well post a "looking for line artist for collaboration" topic with examples of you work on the Art Topic here in CA.

    In any case, make sure you get the artist's permission to color his work and always give him credit when publishing the work.

    good luck

    Yes i know that, well i have learned a lot about studies by just coloring stuff, like i said i dont know what i am looking for, thats why i cant find something to paint, if i knew i would find it in 5 min xD .and dont wory about the permission, i allways name them in my DA image info ,

    Also i tried your "coloring sheets" method and all stuff is cartoon- ish

    Just draw things on paper and scan them in if you don't like drawing on your pc.

    One can open any image in an image editor like Gimp, and then do a "find edges." This turns the picture into a line drawing that you can colour; something like this:

    yea i kinda start drawing on a paper but nothing serious, only on notebooks with lines of A5 format so it would be really small,
