Just in need of a little help
So, I used the Ctrl.paint tutorials by Matt Khor and I purchased his Painting In Greyscale video which was super helpful BUT I painted an image as part of a project at uni (I am still a noob so please be gentle , Don't actually, I need all the constructive crit I can get) and when I try to convert from greyscale to colour it just looks terrible!
Any advice someone could give would be amazing!
Please ignore the unfinished-ness of the painting, I still need to clean it up .
Here is the image in greyscale:
And here is the colour (obviously ignore the really out of the lines colour as that is not the point, it is the fact that the colour does not blend with the greyscale in any way:
I am using photoshop CS5 with a wacom tablet, the greyscale is on one layer (Which I flattened) and the colour is one two layers (both multiply, I have tried all layer types and that looked the most normal).
Sorry if this is in the wrong section. I don't know where to put it.
Thanks in advance!

Nice work so far =)
I guess before you start getting into colouring that image, you should overwork the greyscales. They are good so far but there are no shadows so far. you can't recongnize the lightsource and any cast shadows or core shadows or anything like that.
read through some homepages about the study of light, keywords: mass light, mass shadow, core shadow, transition, cast shadow etc.
I think if you pay more attention to that, the colouring will have a different and better impact on your image =))))
and if you have problems with the teqnique of putting colour into your greyscale image itself.... this video might help you!
over and out
