Hey Amy, these are looking really great! What techniques are you using to paint over the black and white copy?

I recommend checking out her tutorials and gifts section of her website, they are really cool - she even has her photoshop brushes posted.

I had no idea anyone really checked my blog! Cool stuff :)

Using the polygonal lasso tool to select the skin and clothes, then dump color in the selection to give me a base. Add a new layer, lower opacity of the brush and start painting colors on top (I'm using a limited pallet too). Sometimes I do a gaussian blur to soften the strokes.

thanks for the link btw! i'll be sure to check it out
