DC Characters COLORS JUUUUST COLORS
kk, need some help on Supergirl's face so far as highlights
and thanks tons Nerdface for those actions. Color holds SAVED my supergirl's stomach aaand added a nice touch to catwoman's suit.
Tip dont ever, use the dodge and burn tool . The highlights are very unrealistic, They seem to be random.
i like the dodge and burn styles. We're talking about fictional superheroes and even tho we want some die hard real fiction some things are just allowed to be pretty, and i think they're pretty.

Just remember that the program won't do the work for you.
(Although it would be nice if it could!)
In fact, the basic tools are the best. You can use the Brush tool to get all you need done, and in fact I think that would be a good idea.
Work on the basics before you add the extras!
You wouldn't need the color hold on her stomach if you had focused more on giving it dimension with your painting. You've got the "light source" idea down, but your shading is too high-contrast. Her torso goes from pink to almost pure white in the middle. Rather than artistic, it just look sloppy!
Here's my quick suggestion for her face:
I'd really like to see you tighten up your shading. How long did you spend on this picture before you posted it?
Allrighty then. Here we go. You must hate me by now.
First of all, like I mentioned in the email. You need to fill the lineart layer with pure black, you can see the colors underneath showing through. I really should've added an extra step to do it in the action...
Also, I hate to sound like an ass, but I've decided I'm not going to comment on any more of your stuff until you post something that at least looks properly flatted, and is inside the lines. I'm happy to give some advice on lighting and form, but I can't and won't for someone who can't even seem to get the concept of coloring inside the lines.
That is all.
We'll learn 'im yet, Jelle.

I kiiinda know cell-shading, so could you help with that maybe?

well what wasn't inside the lines. because i used it just like u said. and also, i appreciate ur constructive criticism, but i honestly thought it was flatted right, i mean it was certainly easier in selecting areas to work on. also the fill in lineart step. that confuses me.

No offense, but you really need to take another look at that flatting tutorial. Really read it. I guarantee you your colors will look 10x better if you just keep the colors nice and tight INSIDE THE !@#$% LINES!
That concludes my angry service announcement for today.
