I am new to digital painting, beware!
I've read around the net that it is a viable technique to first shade in greyscale to get the values and contrast in harmony and whatnot.
I've been doing that the past two days in paint tool SAI and for the most part I'm really happy with how it is turning out(never shall I dub the watercolor tool as useless), but I was wondering how I would follow up if I wanted to actually color it later?
That's a matter of opinion. Without wanting to be too lazy, here is a post I made yesterday on this very topic:
By the Gurney book in my post, I was referring to Colour and Light which another poster in that thread had already recommended.
EDIT: Also, please note the sketchbook link in your profile is meant for your sketchbook thread here on CA. NOT for a link to Deviantart. If you hover your cursor about the little sketching emoticon it will say "my CA sketchbook"
Folks here won't be too pleased if they click the sketchbook icon and end up being taken to another website.

I probably won't be buying that book (since I do not like making online purchases... and I'm broke at the moment). But thank you for your take on this, I will play around with paint tool sai some more and see for myself then. I'll just have to look for coloring tips/trade somewhere else(and hopefully free).
(PS: I've removed the sketchbook link.)
To be honest, I don't think there is a watercoloring method that isn't somewhat tricky. Regardless, thanks again.
