Apparently some loser felt the need to report this and say it needed a mature tag rather than just, you know, reminding me in the comments. So you are warned. One image has artistic and mild nudity. Nothing graphic or provocative, just nude for reference.
Tutorial for this picture:
A lot of other tutorials and resources were mentioned so here they are in order (let me know if I missed one):

So yeah, people have asked me how I paint linelessly in the past and this is sort of a vague representation of how. I see loads of lineless ones that are never really lineless and it annoys me.
It's messy and lazy and full of typos, I know XD Don't bother pointing them out, I really want to move on now. I wasn't going to post it at all originally but I wondered if someone might find it useful after all and my poll said people wanted it so I thought I'd stick it up anyway.
Sorry it's not very neat. But I guess this isn't supposed to be a work of art, it's just supposed to help you make one XD It's really more of an extended walkthrough than a tutorial.
If it helps you, I'd love to know ^^ Thanks for reading!
