Lineartless Coloring Tutorial

Title: How to do lineartless coloring (Alphonse Elric from FMA)
Fandom: Full Metal Alchemist
Fanwork Type: Digital Art
Difficulty: Intermediate
Additional notes: Well, everyone does stuff differently, but the principle is always the same - start light/rough and keep working in shadows and highlights until you start seeing the finished product emerging. It can be a bit disheartening in the beginning because the colored layers can look like blobs. However, doing it the way I kinda-sorta outlined will produce something a bit like the Al pic (I also used the same technique for this: http://www.deviantart.com/view/22464496/). I used Deleter CG Illust for the Al pic, which is like Open Canvas, and Shi Painter (oekaki program) for the Gawl pic.

wonderful! I'm adding to my memories to try out later. Also, that's a really great drawing of Al, good job!
