This colorization tutorial has been sent to us by Laval Yan.
In the previous tutorials we used the AKVIS Coloriage plug-in to colorize black and white photographs. Laval Yan found a new way of using the software - he applied it to add color to hand sketch drawings.
To create the tutorial Laval Yan did the following:
He selected the colors for the skin, hair and lips from the Color Library. Take into account, that when you set color for the face, you should outline the eyes and the lips. Otherwise, the blue of the eyes and the red of the lips will spread to the skin around.
He set two colors for the hair - a dark and a bright one. Besides, the strokes were not straight but zigzag.
He set a number of colors for the flowers in the anime girl's hair.
You can use this technique to colorize sketches in manga and anime styles as well as any other drawings.
