Hello! The quickest way to get an answer from me is to send questions un-anonymous so that I can answer them directly!
Thank you very much, I’m terribly flattered. In the last 5 minutes I prepared a pseudo-tutorial for you, I hope that’s alright.
We’ll start off with some badly drawn bunched fabric, probably snipped from a curtain or someone’s dress. I’m working in Paint tool Sai!
The next step is usually to slap colour on broadly so that I can get an idea of where shade goes. I do with with the pen tool, usually set at 300px+ in size and 30% opacity. (Settings for those curious!) For big painting pieces it’s useful to figure out how your colours will go, and quickly.
I usually like to put in some highlights/other hues in to make it more interesting, but other than that you just refine the shading up some.
Adjust the colours some more/fix things … and that’s really all. This is not a good example but I hope that you could understand the images. (*´～｀*);;; This is usually how things get coloured, but not always!
There’s a few other anon questions under the cut.
