OMG finally! - As you can see, the cover is pretty simple as far as covers go - I don't have time to color. I also really don't think I'll use any tones in this chapter. XP
The art in this chapter will be okay for the first 9 pages since I did those before starting to work on my new projecy, but after that they'll start sucking. V_V

Arrgh, I'm in the editing stage of my new comic... It's pretty tough. ;; But I finally learnt how to use Photoshop properly. I mean, I still don't know how to color with it, but I can edit comic pages. XD

Aw ;w; Poor Resonance xDD
But yay for updates! Maybe you can provide a lines-only version of this image so that random people (like me) can color it for fun? >8D <33

As for photoshop, it's all about using layers properly. I like to seperate lines, colors, lighting and shading. I always have closed lines so that I can select everything around the object I'm coloring, and fill that in with white on another layer (that I put right beneath the lineart.) Then, when I'm done coloring in the parts that aren't covered with white (which is easy; just use a layer underneath) I can select the white layer by doing command+A and moving the layer once to the right and once back to the left with the arrow keys, and then deleting all of the shading and color layers beneath it. And then you can just color in the white layer, keeping it selected. :3nod:

As for the action of coloring itself, you can do it in many different ways; I like to just go at it with a round hard brush of whatever color I want, but some people select things with the lasso tool and fill them with color, making many different layers, and then adjusting hue and opacity afterwards. :3

I hope this helped, but I'm sure there are lots of WAYYY better Photoshop tutorials on the internet. xDD

for photoshop, feel free to contact me if you're having trouble. I've had to teach about a bajillion people how to use it and have been figuring the thing out on my own for the past five-six years >_>;

good on you for juggling your new comic, this comic and the army all at once, god knows most people couldn't pull it off.

mochaabear: okay, the ol' military explanation. XD I live in Israel where there's conscription for both men and women, so I'm not there out of my free will. I'm what we call here a "jobnik" - I go to the base in Tel Aviv every day, waste time doing almost nothing till 2 PM, then go back home. I'm just another completely useless soldier in this stupid army... XP

Mythee: Thanks for the explanation, though I still prefer coloring with one layer in OpenCanvas. XDD

Mayeko: Thank you too. ^^ But I guess I'll figure it out by myself. XD

I want that cat. Really, I do. I would love and cuddle it all day.

Either way, glad to see the comic again! :)

Aww, poor cat. Ren is scaring the poor thing. Can't understand why, though, since he's so cute, sitting there <3
