I was more concerned about the shading, coloring, etc with the pictures but thanks. I will definitely check that out.

Have you heard about the saying that goes something like "drunk people and kids tell no lies"? Well, that's just a fallacy.

Oh coloring... Uhm. I dunno what to say for that. It comes pretty naturally to you if you paint normally a lot.

Oh I forgot to ask, do you have a tablet? If you don't, you are gonna have to do vector coloring, which is kinda out of my area of expertise.

Otherwise, I just used a variable hard round brush in photoshop ~size 45 or so, with spacing set to 5, size control set to pen pressure, opacity control set to pen pressure, and flow control set to pen pressure. I end up blocking all my colors in with that brush. Then I use the same settings, except with a soft round brush, and use it to blend where needed (note, make sure you know where to blend. A total lack of hard edges makes your drawing _suck_. I learned that the hard way as well).

Avoid dodge and burn. Avoid smudge and blur. They are kinda the easy way out, and most of the time they end up making your drawings... well, suck (especially dodge and burn). If you want to blend use a large fuzzy brush, and if you want to make stuff lighter or darker, use color adjustments and/or just painting over it.

Oh I just remembered a really good tutorial on digital painting >_>. Uh lemme find it. It was really good on coloring and stuff...

Aha found it after googling: http://www.itchstudios.com/psg/art_tut.htm

^that one helped me a lot a year or two back. It's well written, and best of all, not boring with its many pictures (lol space filler poop).

Anyways, I still stand by what I said before, tutorials are decent, but what really helps you is drawing stuff and getting other people to critique it.

I don't have a tablet. That explains a lot. Thanks for the advice.

I can borrow my friend's tablet when he's not using it, though the last time I borrowed it was almost a year ago.

if you don't have a tablet, I think the best way to do it if you don't want to learn vectors is with the selection tool and gradients. Select the area you want to color, and use a translucent gradient on screen/multiply to color stuff.

But really, if you want to do digital stuff, a tablet is a really nice investment. You can go for a cheap wacom bamboo if you just want to doodle and stuff, but the wacom intuous 3 is where it's at. I bought myself a giant one (9x12), but i kinda regret that now. The 6x8 is usually perfect for anyone, whether hobbyist or professional. It's... just kinda expensive if you actually want to buy other stuff for an year :P. It's listed as ~330$ on the wacom website, but you can probably get a used one for much less. I take mine where ever I go.


EDIT:

I finished the sacchin lineart. Want me to upload the cleaned lines? You guys can try coloring it for fun if you have the time lol :\

I got a heap of homework this weekend, so I might not get to finish coloring sacchin, but I'll do it eventually.
