Progress: Cognoscente. by Shinerai Progress: Cognoscente. by Shinerai

It's not super fancy and that's because I'm lazy. Several people have asked me for a coloring tutorial of some kind, but I really don't want to make one. Mostly just because I just make stuff up all the time so I color almost every piece differently. So I took a bunch of screenshots while painting my most recently submitted portrait of Yoi and maybe this will still help some people grasp my thought process when I'm drawing. If not, it's okay because I don't either.

I've also created a tutorial on how to add color using gradient maps.

Hello!! thanks for sharing the result of your experiment with me :D It looks really great! The shading is very painterly but still soft, and I just love the crispiness of the sharpen filter. did you use SAI for this?

Thanks! and for your question i did use SAI!
i edited it with Photoshop just for the filter,
SAI sadly doesn't have all  the filters that photoshop have, and i find that
Photoshop is better for filters and editing,

Thank you very much for this. I'm really new when it comes to digital art and I've yet to find my own way with coloring.

On a side note, I like your color choices for this one, it really brings out a sort of majestic or awe inspiring feel to it with the depth.
