June 21, 2011, 10:51 PM
Hey guys I am stumpped on the main thing that bothers me the most, coloring. At the moment I can do it fine but to tell you the truth I'm not happy with the current coloring status of it. I have about 3 particular style that I really like and I wondered if anyone could help me find the names of them or at least offer a detailed tutorial on how I could draw them:

1st is by a man named gueuzav: http://gueuzav.deviantart.com/gallery/
2nd is by a girl named hachiyuki: http://hachiyuki.deviantart.com/gallery/
And 3rd is by a man named Genzoman: http://genzoman.deviantart.com/gallery/

Please any help with this is greatly appretiated, I love these styles and I'm programming a game. So, yeah helping me with this can also get your name in the credits of it when its finished as well

- Thank you ^_^

I think I can help you out recognizing the styles of the artists you posted.

1. It's a soft cel shade. I'm pretty sure the artist used a tablet more than the pen tool to get that kind of style. There are many tutorials on cel shading, so it should be easy to learn that style.
2. Same thing as the first, I believe. The artists uses textures as well.
3. It's all digital. There's a step by step picture in the gallery showing how he does a drawing. You can find it right here (http://genzoman.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d3imtux).

let's see , was just about to point out that Genzoman has some step by step pictures in his gallery but gin was faster , though I was thinking of a different step by step that he has . I think that this (http://genzoman.deviantart.com/art/Cowabunga-tutorial-chapter-01-101644185?q=in%3Aresources%2Ftutorials%20sort%3Atime%20gallery%3Agenzoman&qo=2) is a bit more detailed as he also adds in some comments to the processes :)
and also this short tut (http://genzoman.deviantart.com/art/Quick-Tutorial-1-Basic-render-144102852?q=in%3Aresources%2Ftutorials%20sort%3Atime%20gallery%3Agenzoman&qo=1) would probably help too
As for his style it's called soft shading and there are so many styles in which to do it wheew
but his is quite original.
As for the rest queuzav has a soft cell shading style [a combination between cell shading ~like anime are colored~ and soft shading] but he tends to go more towards soft than rough in most of his pictures
as for the last one I think it's more like a simplified soft shading style since most of her pictures are soft overall with very few rough edges
