Tutorial: Coloring cloth by deviantbluebug Tutorial: Coloring cloth by deviantbluebug
Here's a tutorial on how I color cloth using lineart by Renmazuo [link] I don't claim to be an expert, but the tutorial gives one way on how to approach and think about cloth.

I hope it's helpful! (And not too wordy).

A list of my tutorials:

This is really helpful! Although, I think knowing what brushes you used would be nice. Also how does one choose the shade color? Do you just bring up the color wheel and choose a lighter shade or is more thought put into it? I'm still such a beginner so any advice would be great! :D

This is very helpful! I've never thought of coloring the top fold as a highlight.

Thanks!

Exactly how do you make the shadow of the hand fall, i'm having a bit of trouble understanding how you did that. If you may, would you mind clarifying the please. neither the less i love how you color, and your techniques are magnificent!

Thank you SO much for making your tutorials! I am new to color, but have been drawing for my whole life. Color has introduced multiple problems for me as well as metal. I also found your mention about the way shadows fall VERY useful! I keep forgetting that shadows do fall on things according to their shape. I believe the lack of shadows falling down is a result of my problem with light source.

If you decide eventually to make a light source tutorial, I wouild definetally be one to read it. Thanks again for your contribution!

what do you use to shade (like the tool) because the way i do it looks messy...

Sorry for the late reply. I've away from dA for a long time. I cheat and use the gradient tool. Then set the layer to "multiply". That's the easiest way.
