I'm sorry, but could I ask you to make a tutorial on coloring and shading? You don't have to, it's just, this year, I want to get a lot better at drawing. If you've done any tutorials in the past, can you link me to them? Thank you so much, I really love your art.

hmm, never made a COLORING tut yet (or at least, not with this new style im going with) so i guess i can make one right now!

so i guess i usually start with a basic sketch. really simple. light lines with the marker tool.

image

first you kinda wanna figure out where the light is gonna come from. that makes it easier. decide where you want the shadows and junk, and how strong the light is.

image

once you decide that (you dont actually have to draw it, this is just an example) i usually start working under the sketch already. (im gonna do lineless here)

so first i lower the opacity of the sketch and put flat colors under it. (the skin tone is light so ill also put a bg color so i can see it better :0)

image

then i start with the marker tool and grab some shadows

(im lazy af so sorry)

image

then blend them a little more with the water tool

image

then do the same thing again with a darker color on another layer

image

and blah blah just keep repeating that until its as dark as you want or smth idk

image

then do the same again, except now with LIGHTEr colors

image

then do the same for the rest of the drawing blah blah blah im too lazy to finish this tbh

look i gave him hair :D

image

thats p much it really just the same thing for the whole drawing— shadow shadow light light whatever whatever 

i hope i helped in some way ovo !!

GUYS. GUYS.
GUYS.
HOLY FUCK.
GOOD GUY ADOBE releases the ENTIRE CS2 SUITE. FOR FREE.

That means free access to Photoshop CS2 - and that already has most of what you could ask for, really.
All you have to do is create a FREE ADOBE ID.
I am not sure about commercial use, but MAN. FUCKIN’ SWEET DUDE




Reblogging for the greater good.




I’m unlikely to pick it up as I honestly never use PS anymore, but here everyone who follows me. Free stuff.




oh wow this is perfect i was just lamenting that i’d have to buy creative suite for my new laptop WELP




Signal boost for any of my followers who need art programs!
The cs2 programs date back only a few years, and still have much of the functionality of today’s more modern ones. The differences between most of the versions are little more than slight modifications or additions of minor features, and UI changes. Go for it guys!!
Also, in case the page is down, here are the download links + serials.

Signal boost for you too, I downloaded it and use Photoshop CS2 to draw now c: enjoy, this is legit!

This looks legit! :O
