How to color metallic things

Hi! Its the same old Aoibara again, and I am here with a new tutorial!

Today, I will teach you how to color metal and metallic things! It is a really easy thing, and it should work with other programs! This time, unlike my usual tool Paint Tool SAI, I will be using Clip Studio Paint today!

Expand the blog to read the tutorial!

OK, so I will be demonstrating using this artwork of Balmung (.Hack) I made a few days ago.

If you are also using Clip Studio Paint, this is the brush I have used for this and here are the settings:

In the case of Paint Tool SAI, here are my settings which will be great. I have used this before. (Note: I switch around with the brush mode from normal to vivid.)

Please notice that you do not need to use these brush settings for your art! You can use your own shading brush! (I did this with cel-shade and it still works.)

And the texture you use is entirely up to you, but for this particular one, I used the 大理石_グレー texture from Celsys. If you have Clip Studio, put in this term in the search engine and it should come out.

And for colors, for gold and silver which are typical metallic colors, these colors work the best:

The silver one is the same I used on the character, as well as the gold decoration.

If you have this all set, I will be all ready to explain!

So first off, have your area ready:

Next, create a clipping layer and set it to multiply. Use your airbrush tool to make a rough shading. I notice alot of artists do this and I think it actually helps. If you don't do it, I am fine with it, and you can go with your own guts.

Again, make another clipped mutiply layer. OK, so use your usual shading brush and shade away lightly. I usually do a first level shading, then a deeper shading later. Be sure to focus on the light source or else it will look clunky.

Now, use another deeper shade to the second level shading. Clip and set it to multiply too!

Here comes the fun part: Making it metallic! Now clip the layer, set it to lumonisity/linear dodge (light)/addition (light) (In photoshop, it is linear dodge (Light), for Paint Tool SAI some translations say lumonisity while others will say addition. Clip Studio Paint will use addition (light).)

Use a color which is an almost white yellow, and add the lightning.

Finally, add a texture of your choice, and set it to overlay. Lower the opacity if you think it is needed.

That is it! This is how I usually do metal stuff!

I hope this tutorial was easy to follow, and see you next time!

Please clap if you like!
