well done....the progress is did you manage to change some lightings there? Do you use a lot of overlays and layer settings to achieve it? I'm an aspiring artist and learning from people like you is a fruitful experience...(^_^)

Hey Hokage3,
I'm glad that you like watching the progress :-)
There are a lot of good ways to add light on a picture.
The best layer modes are "overlay" and sometimes "soft light" Play around with the opacity.
Less is more. Put the color on the borders of your light source. So you get these nice high saturated shine effect.
Also you can try to make a bright light source, and just just white and don't make any shine or gradient.
For example just a circle or a star. 
Then you click in photoshop in your layer window on the bottom the symbol "fx" for layer style.
And choose "outer glow" and playing around with all the options. You can see that you sharp circle or star have know a nice shine.
The best way is to choose in the menü of "outer glow" a bright and very saturated color with the blend mode "overlay".
Or you can go with blend mode "screen" and white or some soft yellow and adding your light source some nice shine.
After that you add the overlay and have a similar effect. Just play around :-) You will see what works best for you and your artwork.
Hope this helps :-)

It looks so interesting but to be honest, i cannot keep up. xD You know what i mean? i am so confused that i have no learn effect, but maybe that is just me.
I am still amazed and so much in love with your way of colouring! May i please ask how long the colourin took you.

Thank you my dear :cuddle:
I know it's not very self-explaining, so I plan to make some tutorials too. In the meantime I will post progresses like this :-) Hmmm it took me about 15 hours.

you are most welcome! ^^
it is interesting to see how the process is, but i love to learn new stuff. >w< so it would really be very helpful, if you could please do tutorials too! But don't feel forced or rushed. ^^

Thank you very much AzuPantsu <3
I use both of it. At the beginning I have a color layer under my lines to do the color sketch and the rough part. If I'm satisfied with the rough part I create a new layer above the lines and the color concept.
Now I start to draw all the details and block out the rough stuff. It is more or less chaotic. ;-)

Wow! That's amazing! Do you use a color layer to inject color at first or just paint directly straight on with color?
