Harley Quinn - Tutorial/Walkthrough by StacyRaven Harley Quinn - Tutorial/Walkthrough by StacyRaven
Walkthrough/tutorial for my latest Harley Quinn coloring. *hit the download for full size*
Color commission for ~comishart to color his Harley Quinn drawing.

This is not an in depth tutorial. Though it does give some specifics it is not meant as an exact step by step instruction. It’s more of a general tutorial and walk through. This tutorial is meant for those who have at least a basic knowledge of Photoshop and it's elements such as layers, layer modes, and Photoshop's tools.

If any of you have an interest in an in-depth tutorial on how to color pencil shaded art, please let me know. If enough people express an interest in it, I may do a tutorial on exactly how to do it (or, at least how I do it).

The steps and techniques I mention is not the only way to do it. There are many many ways to color images, this is just one of them. It’s important to keep exploring different techniques to find what works well for you. Even when we find something that works, it's important to keep in mind that there may be other techniques out there that will produce even better results. Keep growing, learning, and exploring! :D I'm not very good at art, but I work hard studying and practicing every day. I know I will improve with work and with time. I'm sure one day I'll look back on this and cringe at how bad it is compared to where I will be artistically in the future. But this is where my skill is today. And today, I'm ok with that. With God's help, tomorrow I will be better. :)

I found it extremely interesting, especially the fact that you make most of the process over the pencil lines (or did I understand it wrong?). If that is right the pencils pretty much disappear, right ? (can't see properly due to the size of the pic)
Thanks so much for sharing this :hug:

Most of the process is over the pencil work - but because of the layer settings applied to the layers over it, you can still see most of the pencil work.

Ahh I've see quite a few DA people getting Instagram accounts, one of these days I'll have to figure out how that works. I went to the site and took a look but had trouble figuring out how to get it all to work, it's not very intuitive, IMO. But that could also be that I usually only have time to check out things like that after I've gotten my work done (which is usually in the wee hours when I'm half asleep lol). I'll have to see if I can sign up and get all that set up one of these days. :) If I get one I'll be sure and add you.
