Ok, so as promised, here is my tutorial / step-by-step chibi thing! This is my silly little way of colouring stuff. C:
I realized that I kinda glossed through some stuff (didn't want to make it more wordy / longer than it already was haha) so if you have any questions regarding specific things, please feel free to ask! ovo b

I have been practicing digital fora while, and trying to learn cleaner coloring and drawing tips. This is one of a few that i am going to practice now. But i suppose my main issue is coming up with a good small sketch to start with and expand from there. OH but I do love especially the tip your gave for the color outline?, i am going to try it soon. In either case, thank you very much for this, your art is very clean and colorful. and i hope you are doing well!
Yeah, sketches can be tough, but a lot of fun. The best advice I can give is to try doing quick sketches from life, and focus on getting the movement in the form. It helps a lot, and you'll get a lot of pose ideas and such. C: And don't worry about your sketches being messy, you can always clean them up a bit before or when you do the lines. (Also, if you're more comfortable sketching with a pencil, you can always do that and scan it in, and do the rest digitally. I often do this C: ) I'm glad this helped you, thank you very much for your kind words! And best of luck! <333
Thank you very much for advice and reply, and i am definitely taking your advice to heart and practicing. Its kind of a push since i am terribly persnickety when it comes to details of the drawing and have a habit of trying to do those before having something concrete. Mhm, i certainly understand and enjoy the sketching traditionally then scanning when i can.(always feels go to actually feel your work) =v= ) but definitely going to try the studying of life, with natural poses and stuff, and trying to be a bit more lax. Just have to really stick to it. > ~ >; Again thank you for your time and your reply, and hope you are doing well, and also the best of luck to you as well. -also in turn sorry for my late reply,i am hoarding your original reply in my inbox for quicker/better referencing ;v;-
Yay, I'm glad! I love seeing people's process as well ;v; Aw, thanks IF! hugs <3
Nope! I use that same brush I pointed out near the beginning of the tutorial, with it's standard settings. The only "editing" I do on the line art is adding some colour to it, and the slight gaussian blur C:
