Hmm, if too many layers are an issue, perhaps you could combine them to specific pieces/elements rather than individual characters? For example, you could have all their clothes on the same layer, and then another layer with all of the character's hair, and so on. I know I tend to have lots of layers myself, so I'm always looking for different ways to cut down when I can.

Yeah I was going to do that but it's a rather large canvas and moving all around to color certain parts bugs me, but I'll live through so many layers. I eventually merge some down

Also, all these color layers

Gonna have 12 more layers for shading. I literally can't handle so many layers. Like this alone is the normal amount of layers I have for a drawing and I normally have each colored section broken apart, but not for this

What art program do you use? I know for PS and SAI you can make folders to organize layers into like this

That makes it easy to group stuff together and if you want to focus on a certain element or whatever, then you can just hide/show the folder and maaagic. Might not necessarily be super useful for this, but in the future when you do multiple characters, it's good

 

it looks like you have all the flat colors for one character on one layer? if that's the case, you can merge the colors for two characters, so for example, merge a far right character with a middle character (as long as they don't intersect), then the second most right with one character to the left from the middle etc

 

or you could do what mu said

think she's using GIMP, dj? At least that's what I'm assessing from a few of the screenshots. And I myself cannot remember for the life of me how the layering functions work on there. It's been far too long. But I know the program was lacking a few of the things we find in SAI or PS, just not entirely sure what. 

 

Or I could be wrong entirely on what program she's using, fff.

Yeah I have been forced to use gimp lately because my photoshop has been completely stupid for the last month and just won't open, but for now I'm just sucking it up with all the layers. It's just a pain to scroll up and down through them sometimes trying to find the right layer. The amount of times I go into the wrong layer and start coloring is actually amusing

Needed a little break from that AoT drawing so I begun a little sketch that will feature three couples from three of the stories I have been working on. I'll be working on it alongside shading that big drawing just to give a bit of balance between coloring and actually drawing. So here's the first couple that I finished already

Also to prove I haven't slacked off yet on that AoT drawing, this is the bit of shading I got done

Quite a few of the males you've drawn recently have something about them that looks similar to me.

:P

This time, it was hair and stubble.

[spoiler]

The stubble is very recent. I'm so proud of it's progress :3

But but but I can't stop that. Where there must be a beard/stubble there will be a beard/stubble

 

It's fine, I just can't help wondering why I look like your characters in some way ;)

Well I think the solution is for you to stop looking like my character

 

But if that happened, I'm sure your characters would start looking like my new looks. ;)

2016. I thought it was going to be Fall of this year, but looks like they pushed it back.

This is why I resorted to reading the manga aha. Gonna be an exciting season 2. But yet that AoT drawing if going to take me forever to finish

Ah. I've been reading it since finishing the anime, but wait for a few chapters to stack up. Luckily it updates usually once a month which is nice. Always suggest folks to read it, since there's so much goodness contained.
