    Default [Photoshop Tutorial] Recoloring

    So as the title says I'm going to show you how to recolor an already colored anime
    character. I'll also throw in some other extras.
    This guide assumes you know the basics so if you're clueless about anything I suggest checking the other tutorials first.






















    Spoiler for Result

    I'd expect nothing less from you c:

    I always love your end results, they are always vibrant (mmm gradients *p*) and crisp.

    Making individual layers/copies of what you want colored, and making a backup of the original render is not only good Photoshop practice, but necessary in saving lots of time. I wish somebody could have told me this when I started using Photoshop, I could have saved myself from so much hassle.

    Great tutorial ( - u -)b

    Great work Ragna-kun~

    I'm totally getting addicted to this. I tried it out too lol.

    the chain and the pommel right? well that's more like fixing the colors than recoloring but I guess it can be used that way too

    I did some recoloring on that render out of boredom

    This is quite rush so its most likely a bad quality but anyway heres the progress.

    original image
    Spoiler :  


    what Ive done.
    - eye color
    - change hair color
    - change clothe color
    - lighten the skin a bit
    - undergarment color remain unchange

    outcome(rush outcome)

    Spoiler :  


    I most likely will try again this since that Im not satisfied on the outcome of my work.

    I don't see anything wrong with the recoloring you did. In fact, if you didn't say which one is the original and which one you edited I wouldn't be able to tell. Nothing looks amiss, except for a little hair you didn't render behind her neck, but that has nothing to do with recoloring anyway.
