tutorials

Although I'm awfully busy and the new pages might be delayed , i'll still update some stuff to liven things up.

it's not exactly a tutorial but it will give you an idea of how i do my work.

Step:

1. I don't ink, a lot of people ask me that. Just try to achieve a nice clean pencil stroke and clean any sketchy lines using photoshop.

2. Adding flat colors, if you know the basics of photoshop like layers and stuff then you're off to a good start. It's a matter of experimenting your own rendering style with or without a tablet. For me I don't use a tablet, I guess I've gotten used to an optical mouse for quite some time.

3. Final touch using photoshop, adding the shadows and highlights. I guess it's what they call cel-shading.

4. A new software I got, it's called Corel Painter 9. I've been experimenting on it lately, what's great about this is that it's system and interface is becoming more like that of photoshop, the looks, the keys and other similar feature. Best of all it's compatible with Adobe photoshop, painter can open psd files and photoshop can open painter files vice versa.

Yes it's kind of rude but I must've not known what else to say for this sort of sketch timeline thing. Why would I be afraid? I just don't like the show, nothing to worry about there.

I disagree, there are ways that stupid yet entertaining can be pulled off in cartoons and other things but this show just didn't do that, it was nothing but stupid and no resolution or constructive/cohesive story arc. (also it's really weird, I don't ever remember typing this yet it happened less than a year ago : | When the show "won" the competition to get on the time slot years ago I remember being really upset then, I had wanted IMP Inc. to win.

I dunno, I liked the show, it was a bit of a dark show, regardless of the cartoony appearance everybody seemed to hate each other in a comical way, and the show itself was about the grim reaper getting cheated by two kids, it was always kinda sick-funnyya know?

MANDY IS EVIL!!! :rofl: of course...that's why she's my fave! she shows the dark side of all of us, hiding behind our light colors and seemingly comfortable lives there is a side that lives with it

The left light sourse is a definite fav: it is more dramatic and adds more defintition to mandy's "i'm not in the mood" face

Hi Bleedman I have a question, when you did this did you actually do it on the paper because from this point of view it almost as if you did all by computer but if you did do it on the paper you are a master and if you did it on the computer, you are a genius/master. So love you work
