Hey guys, sorry I haven't been on in a while, but I'm having a load of fun learning how to color digitally using Manga Studio 5.
It took me almost half a day to figure out how to get lineart in the program to color it, but as it turns out, all you need to do is put your scan in there and press frikkin' Multiply on the layer! 

Anyway I'm using this pic: Attack on Nothing by SaigoNakisage as practice for my first digital illustration, so you'll finally get to see what color they are!!

Later on, I'll practice inking this sketch Marley and Oren Sketch by SaigoNakisage in the program and coloring it as well. I know that's gonna be a lot of fun! Man, with this digital art stuff I could really elevate my knowledge in color theory. I still prefer to do most of my inking on paper first, but once I get more comfortable in the program... I'll STILL do my inking traditionally!!

Kidding, but I do like the feeling of using nibs. 

Right now is just the learning/experimental phase, then I'll look up tutorials from the best digital artists and comic colorists like Kr0nPr1nz, Justin Ponsor, Marte Gracia, Dan Ciurczak, and more! I can't help but list out my favorite artists. I want to share them with everyone (like I share my toys, lol).

When I get the hang of it, I'll try to paint that recent Guillan Seed page and add the dialogue and what-not. I can't wait to start the actual comic and ACTUALLY COLOR THE PAGES. The only reason most of my stuff is black and white is because watercolor's a pain in the ass. But I can't not love it. It's just not fast enough. And in real life everything is on the same layer, lol.

Can you guess what colors they'll be?
