Greyscale to color mini tutorial by Raikoh-illust Greyscale to color mini tutorial by Raikoh-illust
I just thought to show this new trick I discovered via tumblr on how to make greyscale pictures have colors. What's great about this trick I think it's that it can help make pictures look more consistent with the colors and not so weird/muddy since it's something that I tend to make happen before. Of course I still need to learn to make better use of this techinique, but it's definitely one trick I'm gonna be using more often.

Do you always start in grayscale?

Not always, only if I want to experiment  painting in such ways, I usually start with colors.

Is there a tutorial on how to do a grey scale drawing first?

I just can't wrap my head around which part of the picture you have to draw a shade of grey for.

Well it's no so hard, basically you start the sketch with only pure black, and using a brush that's either have the opacity set very low, like at least 40%, or the brush has the opacity jitter turned to pen pressure, thus allowing you to paint in many different tones of black.

It would be a shame, that you don't use photoshop for doing your pictures...

Sai is still overrated and full of elitists, and i am sure the new betas ( if they don't take any other 5 years to release them ) might include changes to EVEN MORE easly allow such things to happen, i know you can do that tutorial on SAI with some trickery, but i've never used it so...
