(for more info about this just check out some of the other contestants' work and you will get the whole idea).

      NEW! To minimize rip-offs, you shall do a screenshot while you have reached around midway of your own coloring. And the screenshot shall be forwarded to me along with your submission in PM. The screenshot won't be revealed publicly but it will act as proof of your own hardwork.
      ➔ To keep all submissions anonymous, do not show your coloring to anyone on any site including Deviantart.

      ➔ Submitting entries with the same lineart as an entry from a previous contest is not allowed.
      Ecchi/Hentai colorings are not accepted (google 'ecchi' if you don't know)

      Manga Coloring Contest [33] ~ Entry: Your Username

    • How to do basic coloring/what do I have to do in order to join the Manga Coloring Comp?

      This is what I tell most people who ask me for tips on Photoshop and how to color Mangas.
      Let's see:

      The Manga Coloring Competition is a Digital Coloring Competition. Which means that you submit by choosing a part of a manga page, or a black and white picture of a manga character from any anime/manga (Naruto, Bleach, Fairy Tail, Hellsing, etc.)

      And color it by either using Photoshop, Gimp, Illustrator, Paintshop Pro, or any other painting program. (Hand-drawn work goes in the Art Contest)

      I recommend you do not use Paint as you won't have any chance of getting a good result, and it is not a program meant to color images.

      I would recommend you watch some YouTube videos on how to color Mangas, also check out for some tutorials. They can be of great help.

      The easiest way to start learning how to color manga is by getting a clean lineart like this for example.

      For beginners it is easiest to start with Anime Coloring and here's an example of one:

      What you do when you start coloring?:
      1. Create a group called "colors" below your lineart (lineart stays on top. Unless your lineart has a white background, place the lineart on the very bottom of your layers). This is where all your color layers go.
      2. Color each part of the lineart (just fill them with color) use a new layer for each different color/body part.
      3. Set all your coloring layers to multiply (blend mode).
      4. When you're done with that create a group called "shadows". This is where all ur shadows go. Place this above the color group.
      5. Start adding shadows where there should be shadows. Feel free to use my picture for tips on where to add shadows. Remember! Imagine where the light hits from, etc.

      How to take a screenshot:

      If you are using a MAC computer:

      - To capture the entire desktop, press Command-Shift-3. The screen shot will be automatically saved as a PNG file on your desktop.

      If you are using a Windows computer:

      - Press "Print Screen" ( the button is usually found next to the "F12" and "Scroll Lock" keys. On laptop keyboards, you may have to press the "Fn" button.) to take a screenshot of the entire screen. Then open Microsoft Paint, paste the screenshot and Save.
