Coloring Technique Preview: Greyscale Step by Step by ConceptCookie Coloring Technique Preview: Greyscale Step by Step by ConceptCookie
After being asked by Kent to sculpt a creature concept, went ahead and recorded the process, with no real tutorial in mind but led to the idea of doing a tutorial on coloring done with a greyscale technique. 

Many artists work this way and build up their values before adding color! It's a great way to focus on lighting without worrying about color balance, harmony, saturation, etc.

Look forward to that happy accident sometime after the Cecelia course

The colors sort of remind me of Spiderman's outfit. Really neat way of coloring!

It's been put on the back burner while other tutorials and content are taking top priority unfortunately

A very well organized step by step tutorial! :D Except, I'm a bit confused on how you "refined" the painting after putting down the values. When I use the greyscale method, I could never seem to figure out how to refine and clean it after putting down the values :/ Is there some sort of technique? Or is it just being patient with an eraser? :P

I like to start out with a larger brush to lay out the values and then get smaller as I refine the details. This goes for the eraser tool as well. Hope this helps =]

Great tutorial!
One quick question though; How do you "lose the lines"? Do you simply delete them,
or do you blend them into the grey scale?

Whichever seems to work better for the scenario, I often draw over the lines but if the lines are on it's own layer, I would hide that layer.
