Tutorial: how I draw lineless by Celebi-Yoshi Tutorial: how I draw lineless by Celebi-Yoshi
It's fairly short, because really the only thing I do is... not use lineart xD But yeah, hope this tutorial is helpful in some way o:

Everything shown here was done in Photoshop.

Fun fact: I actually can't draw lineart on computers for beans. Like I actually can't do it. I draw lineless because I like how it looks, and because lineart is just too hard for me :'D

Simple shading tutorial, and yoshi drawing:

This technique is used in almost all of my "fancier" drawings/paintings.... some that I am asked about most often:

ok so the sketch is one layer and then when you start 'blocking' it with
color, that's also a layer too right ??

This is so awesome! :D Thank you so much for making this!

I'm definitely going to try this out sometime in the future. Alternatively, my wife threw me an idea when I was whining about how chunky and fugly everything looks when I try this. She said I should draw the lineart for each color like I normally do, just do it in the same color as the fill and put them both on the same layer. It's a little bit of a workaround, and not really a proper fix to the "my hand isn't steady enough for this!" problem, but it's a possibility.

I can't wait to give this a shot. There's going to be a torrent of pony art on my page. ^___^ Thank you again, you're the best!!!

First thing I thought of was my picture of Zyrathus. I did it all with no lineart and then when I finished the coloring, I put in the lineart at the end x.x lol

So useful and interesting! Thanks for posting! :) Your methods are a lot like mine except I still use lines, floodfill, and color-replace. ...And then I do other stuff, but yeah, getting the color bases down... just like that! Awesome! Your way is quicker, lol.

I don't think I can do this. It's too hard for me.
