TRADITIONAL COLOURING TUTORIAL by EliciaElric TRADITIONAL COLOURING TUTORIAL by EliciaElric
ty for the DD I really don't deserve it

IT'S A BIG FILE SO BE PATIENT I GUESS

colouring process of

This is basically the process of how I colour with watercolour sticks- (I kept saying pencils but they are STICKS LOL) and coloured pencils. The paper I use is hotpressed watercolour paper. Several people asked me to make one so I did- for once I wasn't lazy LMAO

ANYWAY HERE IT IS
enjoy

if any of you have questions about how horrible I explain things just go ahead and re-ask me here. Or anything I may not have shown go ahead and ask here- I'll explain as simply as I can sdflakgh
it's my first time doing a tutorial so sorry if it's totally shitty lmao

I have a question. I've been looking around to find out what a good starting medium for color is but I'm not really finding anything helpful. Do you have any suggestions? Pastels? Pencils? Stick with the horrible paint that we have to use in class? <--

(This came up because of a recent discussion we had in class about what medium we could use for projects. He said we could use whatever we were comfortable with, but I've never colored anything before. Just fishing for input from various places.)

I'd also appreciate input from anyone who reads this comment if you know anything about traditional color!

Thanks!

OH MY
this looks like fun <3 I love watercolours, but I'm such a noob! Thanks for this awesome tutorial! (And yeah, I really didn't know that there's a way to stop masking tape from ripping the paper o_o it's funny enough that I know about the masking tape trick)
