Tutorial by bleedman Tutorial by bleedman
A lot of people have been requesting for a tutorial so here it is, SO PAY CLOSE ATTENTION!

Step 1: Sketch it!
Step 2 : Lineart it!
Step 3 : Color it flat!
Step 4 : Render it with details : shadows, highlights and fx thingies!
Step 5 : KISS MY BUTT- TOCKS! :iconsocuteplz:
Just kidding :P

Ok for serious, Tutorial vids are great, inspiring and fun to watch but they are useless if you don't apply them hands-on.
You can't expect to improve your skills just by watching tutorials on youtube all day. You have to do it!

So here's step 5 : JUST DO IT! DRAW EM!

Btw This is a character created and commissioned by :iconwarringking88: for his novel project. you can check out his
kickstarter at [link]

Also check my webcomics at snafu

JUST DO IT!

Y'know, oddly this helped me more than like 75% of all the tutorials I have saved in my favorites... -_-

I'm such an idiot.

I know. But drawing on a table can be... confusing. That you have to draw on the tablet but look at the screen is kinda confusing, and if you dont have some practice on drawing already, it can make things more complicated. besides, art can be awesome too with only a pencil and a piece of paper. Even such simple tools can be enough to do awesome things. I mean, just look arround here on DA, you will find lots of art made only with a black pencil and paper.

having a tablet and photoshop doesn't make your art better. it's even harder to draw with ps than with pencils. Don't think it's that easy

Sorry man, but this isn't a tutorial, this is you showing off. People want to understand HOW you do your work, not "Oh yeah, just draw more, lulz!" If you don't want to share, that's fine, but don't go yanking people's chains, especially your fans'.

step 4 is like "woah what just happened"

haha, but good on you for the tut. your advice on just going for it is good. people have to have learn to find their own way of doing things. Besides, there are HEAPS of tutorials out there for beginners on digital colouring. I think once you know the very basics, you're good to go.
Though I reckon most people will want to know the nitty gritty of step 4 so they can take away your secrets of gettin' the awesome on, but I think it's a "look and learn" thing.

Step 3: Got it.
Step 4: Asdfghjkl what sorcery is this?!"
