Grayscale to Colours Tutorial by IvannaMatilla Grayscale to Colours Tutorial by IvannaMatilla
Hi people. This is a tutorial about how to colour a grayscale piece. Many people have asked me for this, so here it is. There are MANY many -I can't stress that enough- many other tutorials (video tutorials even) about this, by more experienced people also. You might want to check those too. But I spent the first day of this New Year working on this, because I want to help others as others helped me, like *SicilianValkyrie , who gave me some tips.
I really hope it's useful.
Comments more than welcome!

I'm having some huge problems with Color layers while following this tutorial. When I want a light color, it's too saturated. When I want a dark color, it's too bright. Sometimes it works, but most of the time it's a gamble. How do you make the program "create" exactly the colors you want while doing this?
