Oh man I am super inspired by your work. Just found you randomly. I love your coloring techniques though I would love to know what art program you use?
Zachula Apr 14, 2014  Professional General Artist
Whoa-golly! Thanks so much - I'm entirely flattered.
I use Adobe Photoshop CS4 and a Wacom Intous 3. Slightly dated tools, but they work perfectly well.
Hope that helps. :)

I too use super dated tools as well. I mainly use SAI and a super old Wacom Bamboo Fun. Just wondering do you color all on one layer or do you do your work on separate ones?
Zachula 3 days ago  Professional General Artist
Aha! Well, for me it actually varies drastically.
I did everything on the same layer for this one:
This piece was separated into layers for just lineart and colors:
And this image had basically everything on different layers, like the lines for each character, each stage of cel-shading, all the lighting effects and textures and so on:

You can see that I use fewer layers when the style is more painterly as it makes sampling colors from the active layer much swifter. Whereas the cleaner style is very particular in shapes and line width, so distributing everything allows for easy corrections.

Hope that helps.
