Hmm ok,

it's absolutly not bad for a first try.( I think there is no worse first try, just better first trys^^)

I started with that tut, too and I know how you're feeling. Zarosaki's colorings are just O.O
Well, I think you chose the wrong picture to color just now. This panel has way to much black parts in it to fill with color. And if you have to color such a big area it's frustrating for a beginner. Try it again with this picture

(I modified it a little)
It's not as spactacular as your choice, but you can do better here ;)

And now some other things:
- I can't see much shadings and there is absolutly no highlight (it's in the tut oO)
- When you shade, try to make clear lines, maybe with the line-drawing tool(I've got teh german version so I don't know what it is told in english photoshop^^)
- try to use a normal shadow color and a even darker dark shadow color. But don't overdo it.
- and at least, not that you haven't done it, choose your colors carefuly^^

So far

Ps.: I'm waiting for the result =D

PPS.: Hmm^^ I colored this picture to show you how it COULD be^^ ;)

Done in about 30 minutes
