How to Color using Mouse by Khalitzburg How to Color using Mouse by Khalitzburg
This will be my tutorial in coloring using mouse and Photoshop

I made this because I noticed most of the tutorials I see here requires a tablet and cannot be done with a mouse, and this is for those people who can't afford to buy a tablet (liek me) although this tutorial can also be applied when using a tablet... I think.

I hope this tutorial will help every mouse users out there ;p
I made it as easy as possible for everyone to follow.

Now kick those tablet users in the ass! JK! :peace::D

...photoshop seems like a pain in the ass. Though if I do ever get the chance to use it this will come in handy being a mouse user myself.

I wanted to see who else uses a mouse on dA and I'm glad this badassed tutorial is here tp help other mouse users!

When I started digital painting, there weren't tutorials out there for mouse users and had to learn the basics and techniques through trial and error. It was hard, I felt as though all the world had tablets when I didn't but I'm glad that people such as yourself take the initiative (when people like me have no time to) to do tutorials such as this!

Insta-fave!

I'm training to use my new and first tablet, but I sometimes use the mouse when I create som digital pictures :D And I think this will be useful for both items Thanks for creating this. When I bougth my tablet, then I was supposed to get PHE8, but when I dowloaded it, it didn't work on my harddriver :'( But I got a diffrent program that's called artrage, it's not familiar I think.

nice tut, and a good technique for mouse users. I use a tablet most of the time but there are certain looks or edges that are easier to get with techniques like these. GJ
