Do you use any blending tools? I'm always having a hard time creating digital art, whether realistic or this kind of style, since I try to blend in my values with the smudge tool like I see in a lot of tutorial stuff. So I hope you could let me know how it is you make the values look so blended well together! :( It'd help me SO much! Thanks..

I'm eager to try out some coloring of my own. I really liked the idea of doing the black and white for the shading. Thanks for the tips!

hm... think this would work just as good if your art has thick outlines?

@_@ I may just have to, actually, I was wondering. does this strategy work well on colors like white? I remember trying a similar strategy (not as many values as I normally cel-shade) and the dark shading didn't show up.

Ive been trying to get more vibrant blending and coloring in my images, which always appear muddy and just wrong.

This is an honest and helpful tutorial, thanks a ton.
