Hi people ^^

Sorry about typos XD I finished it late.

I'm not expecting this to particularly take off XD But for a couple of friends who wanted to learn (including one who refuses to get a dA account <.<)) and because I was bored, I decided to make a tutorial/guide!

It's not very good, I'm bad at explaining things. But if it is any help to you, please let me know. I included the tools at the side to start off with just to make things a bit clearer and leave it up to you later on.

Here's the finished pic:

And here's some other art I've used this method on:

Hi. I read and faved this tutorial ages ago - and I justw anna say THANK YOU SO MUCH! :D

Now that I look back on all my faves for the last couple of years I realize that this is the
tutorial I learned the most from. Without this tutorial I wouldn't have been so good at
colouring as I am today.

Your tutorial opened my eyes to a whole new way of creating pics and later on I started
to find my own methods^^

Thank you so much :D

Oh yay, I'm glad ^^
Yes, and god knows how many tutorials about digital painting I've read... this is the first time I understand how the hell people blend! :-)
I was not choosing the right brush apparently and I was not setting it to this little opacity... so my blending was awful and I was finishing by using the smudge tool, but it didn't look good :no:
So thank you for your detailed tutorial! :thumbsup:

I really like these, nice and simple and easy to follow. I will be saving both for later reference. ^^
