Tutorial on Traditional Media2 by DarkDelusion Tutorial on Traditional Media2 by DarkDelusion
Yes, for some reason I felt compelled to do another tutorial! Why I hear you shout!

I now have Prismacolors and can get better layering / blending - so THAT is what this tutorial is all about - colouring / shading with Prismacolors

To get this in readable form, dont click the full view, you need to click the DOWNLOAD and it will open as a new page :)

The art used is mine (obviously) but the character used belongs to :iconunicorndreams: who gave me permission to use my Trade piece of her char Belle for this tutorial.

I would REALLY appreciate it if people would let me know if they find this useful and please feel free to note / comment with questions.

PS: excuse my spelling of Prismacolors, I'm so used to putting u in colour :p

If you DONT have Prismacolors, you may want to check out my first tutorial [here]

PLEASE NOTE - click Download at the left hand side to get a larger version

Another nice tutorial! Gonna hav'ta look for one of those blenders. I tend to use the side of my pinkie to blend, and it often gets messy... :D
'Course I do go a bit nuts with colors to blend, like mixing purple and dark green instead of just using a black pencil. I like the extra depth I get that way.

Thank you, Blenders are very useful. I got a set of 48 Prismacolors with blender at a very good price on ebay.

This is really helpful! I needed to learn how to shade in colors.

Just one question, what do you use as a blender?

Glad you found it useful and thanks for the fav. The prisma colours I purchased came with a "blender" crayon which is a colourless pencil.

If you dont have prismas and blenders, have a look at my first tutorial [here] as it goes into shading but I didnt own prismas and blenders then :)

Anything else, just ask and I always try and help as best I can

Oh well, I don't do very good things with color pencils. And since I discovered Photoshop, I kinda stopped using them. But I'd like to try again and get better with them someday :)

Im sure you will ^-^ I tried photoshop but could never get the hang of it so I returned to coloured pencils :)

oh! I'm so tempted now to pick up some old drawings and try out the colouring :D I always failed at that, so I gave up on drawing haha

DarkDelusion Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2007
You should! You have a great eye for perspective, shading, colour just from your photography so I think you should definitely take drawing up again!
