black general - walkthrough by len-yan black general - walkthrough by len-yan
after a lot of inquiries about my colouring technique i have finally put together this walkthrough. sadly the file i prepared was too big for dA to support, but i hope this is still readable. i also hope this will answer at least part of your questions regarding my colouring process.

some of the changes between the steps shown here are not easy to spot, which is why i included miniatures of how each new layer look like in normal mode (at least where i thought it necessary).

good look trying out this (very fun and effective) technique^^

software used: photoshop cs5e
