WOW. DA has made big changes right this minute. Nifty! The navigation seems absolutely intuitive and futuristic. U like it??? So far, I do.

:target::target::target::target::target::target::target::target::target:

This stage of the process has some cool peculiarity.
There is NO PAINTING INVOLVED. All I have done (trust me) is color adjustements right on my graytoned layer.

All colors in the known universe can be reached using PS modifiers. Complicated things. Such as...

:bulletred: Hue/Saturation
:bulletred: Levels

(LOL. sounds like a joke, but yeah, is almost that simple)

First of all, don't forget to colorize your layer with any overall color. If you don't do that, grays will remain gray, even if you headbutt your monitor. For colorizing, I recommend Variations.

Other tools used:

:bulletblue: Magic wand.
:bulletblue: Polygonal Lasso Selection

BTW: Still with two layers. Lineart below, colors above (multiply).

The fun has just started, 'antsies.

:halfliquid: FOR TEACHING PURPOSES, THIS WILL BE HIGH-RES AND DOWNLOADABLE.

First of all, thank you so much for doing this tutorial! New techniques learned are great for inspiration. As a matter of fact....Ive been trying to figure out what one of these directions mean.

"First of all, don't forget to colorize your layer with any overall color."

Are you talking about just putting a flat layer of color over everything? I'm not quite sure what this means. If you could clarify, I would be very appreciative. Im sure its just me, but you know, blah blah blah.... :P

All questions are smart questions. :)

You can do it that way, sure.
But I recommend you to click the "colorize" option inside the Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation window. Found it?
After that, you can use Hue/Saturation again, but with "colorize" disabled. Got it?

:sherlock: Interesting. It seems like it'd give you greater color control than painting and using the overlay/color/etc option. When making color adjustments, though, do you select the entire object or a portion thereof? The monster's skin, for example - was that 2 or 3 color adjustments or just one?

The thing you are saying, yes, it's a trademark of the house when doing far more complex thing. This case... it's an "easy for everyone" approach.
The color adjustments, if we get on tasty details, are applied over and over and over (and over). Sometimes for one tiny specific area, sometimes for big chunks of color. :)
