This is going to be extremely helpful! It's going to be my first time colouring water and I'm doing it traditional so I'm going to try and apply this will coloured pencils.

I think next time I test this tutorial out, I will use colors closer to the gray range rather than the bright range. But it was fun nonetheless even though it's not that good. Decent for a first try, me thinks. If you care to know, I used it here: [link] Thanks for putting this up!

Your tutorial is amazing! It was really helpful - I'd tried to do this sort of thing before but it had never really worked. Also there was the slight problem that I am a Photoshop n00b. Well-versed in drawing in Corel Painter Essentials 4, but hopeless when it came to the bounty of effects provided by PS. Your tutorial was comprehensive and inspiring! I used this technique in a card for the SCUBA instructor who helped me get my advanced certification!
