People sometimes are a little ''blind'', they are too lazy to look for answers to their questions. So if you are interest about what I use to draw just please read my ID.

I don't know why, but I really hate to draw girls, but I have some requests, so I decided to show you a little how I color my drawings.

1. line-art ^^



I don't have any tips about how to make line-art I just look at something and I draw this but I'm sure you can find about it in google.

To make my line-art I use ONLY black fineliner, of course you can use pencil to make line-art but be sure to improve your drawing using fineliner and use eraser.

2. face, first layer

 

To color my face I use cream colored pencil (I hope it's correctly wrote) So, very gently you have to color entire face, that's all for now.

3. face - eye, first layer

 

To color eye I used light brown colored pencil, do it gently.

4. Face- shadows, first layer

 

 

improve eye with black colored pencil.. shadows should be always darker on eyelashes and the contours iris of eye
now you have to color gently with dark brown colored pencil forehead, eyelids, cheeks and chin.. dark colors on the edges and clear in the middle of face.. very dark shadows should be drawn on facial contours and strands of hair OH MY GOD I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND ME

5. Hair

 

Don't worry it was easier than translating what I want to say in English haha
Firstly just color the hair lines with light brown colored pencil it makes that coloring hair will be easier

 

Now all you have to do is to gently color the entire hair

 

Shadows should start with from the tips of the hair, the closer to the tips of the hair, the more darker color, You can improve hair lines with black colored pencil

6. Clothes

 

cream colored pencil, blue and black

Remember, first gently and then the shadows at the edges of clothes

I'm tired haha why I make this? I hope that this will help someone. You can copy this drawing and my drawing style but remember to credit me, make source.

This is really helpful!

I do all of these steps while colouring, though I don't actually have the tools besides lame Crayola colouring pencils to colour, so the result isn't as good as having well crafted artists pencils.
Though soon I'll be getting some, but this is really good!
I bet it will help all lot of people out, including me if I ever need a reference image or if I forget how to colour, haha.
Thank you! c:

the only problem i have, is the line art. i just don't seem to really make it look "anime" and when the line art is bad, i just think "fuck all the colouring it's ugly anyway"
