Purple Hippocampus!

My colour groove goes on and on!The original scan was coloured using polygonal lasso and paint-bucket tools, then airbrushed using a soft brush tip at low opacity. Finally I down-sized it for Elfwood and then added some noise to the colour layer to give it texture. I don't like it when computer colouring looks overly smooth. In case this is helpful, I only recently discovered how to easily colour scanned drawings - put the colour on a layer above the drawing with the layer mode set to "Multiply" - it colours over the paler parts while leaving lines and shading untouched, just like using watercolour or coloured pencils over a drawing. I think the method is the same in Photoshop.Ballpoint, then Serif PhotoPlus
