[Progress] Young Aiden sleeping by DamaiMikaz [Progress] Young Aiden sleeping by DamaiMikaz
Progress steps for this work:
Young Aiden sleeping by DamaiMikaz 

01. Rough sketch. Yes, my actual sketching style looks horrid XD
02. Cleaned up lines
03. Rough value blocking.
04. Rough color blocking. This is to determine the general mood/colors of the picture. I usually go through a few color schemes quickly until I find the right mood.
05. Back to values. Doing the characters.
06. Background and blending the characters.
07. Adding light, shadow & detail
08. General color scheme
09. Coloring the characters 
10. Final work. Added small details to make the work feel more alive.

My question is about going from grayscale into color. I've tried a few different methods on this but they instruct me to "overlay" the color over the grayscale and for me it comes out muddy and awful :( even when it looks good in grayscale, the colors come out dull over the grayscale work.

There are several methods you can do the grayscale to color thing.
I personally use 'color' instead of 'overlay' since it doesn't mess with the values and contrast. There are people that use different blending modes, but that all comes down to personal preference. To prevent a drawing from getting muddy it's basically using a lot of different colors for highlights and shadows. As simple as it looks, most of my colors aren't the same all over the subject. I just colorpick and blend and if you were to view my actual layer, it would be filled with all kinds of colors. The second thing is that photoshop is kinda iffy with the whole color thing, meaning it doesn't blend well. I usually fix this with minor edits in 'overlay' or 'screen' blending mode. Other than that I paint over the whole thing to correct the colors I don't like. Since photoshop gamut bugs mostly takes away the saturation, it helps to pick a color that is a bit more saturated than the one you're using.

It overall pretty hard to explain, and something that's mostly learned via trial and error.

Oh that definitely makes sense. Never thought to try the color setting vs overlay or multiply

Thanks for the tip though! I stopped trying the grayscale method years ago because it had never worked out for me. Maybe I'll try it again. ^_^

Nah... These days I use it pretty much to slap on the basic colors and then work from there on ^^

I love seeing messy sketches haha~! Thanks for posting another process thinggy, it's always great to see how other artists put together their pieces. :]

I think it's good you introduced the colours into your grayscale painting slowly~ It took me a long time to learn that changing a grayscale painting into colour changes your values quite a bit. >_< Kinda frustrating haha

It's partly photoshop as well. It doesn't blend colors correctly somehow :/

Mmyeah I've always found photoshop to be a little clunky in that sense, or maybe I just don't know what I'm doing ^^;

It's a great tool, but it has its bugs when it comes to painting.

Makes sense, it wasn't really made for painting to begin with :) Funny how that works haha~

Yet it's the main tool used in the industry.
But that might have something to do with the web- and design- industries as well ^^

I just love that smooth transition of values and colors. It feels peaceful and gentle, just right for this scene.
