I thought it took half an hour just to get the colour inside the lines xD but yes very good, I try so hard to see how you made it, I feel like I'm blind because I really cannot see how you managed to use hues to create values :3 especially since I haaate using the colour picker.
Oh c: so you use a "closed" lineart as in there is a space inside that can be quick selected? that I do but mostly I want to fast colour sketchy lines with no complete closure :3 is there a trick to that too?
Psht! I've been drawing practically the same way for years and it still takes me like an hour to finish something, at very least. It's hard to tell with a finished product, but do you do a sketch and then lineart on top? Or do you just whip these lines out from the get-go? Sketch -> Ink is usually what takes me the most time.
The lines blend so well in places with the coloring that it's honestly hard to see. The lines that are clear look pretty smooth o_o I've always had a rough go at making lineart that blends with the coloring...it always just looks kind of awkward, so I stick with black lines XD I'll have to emulate someone one of these days and see if I can't get the hang of it.
You could also do black lines, set it to multiply, and take down the opacity for a similar effect. There are a lot of different ways to do it. I like to fiddle around in photoshop. Anyway, try it out and tell me how it goes :F
