edit--> it was brought to my attention that I had uploaded an uncorrected tutorial. sorry for all the spelling errors- i'm a bit dyslexic and flip many of my words around. so here's the spell-checked version :)

many of you have asked me for a tutorial so i've finally put together a step by step of my process. it's not much and is very simple but maybe it'll help a little :)
cheers!

oh, and by the way, if you ever commission me to do a character design, this is an example of the screen caps you would be getting every step of the way.

I'll admit... I'm terrible at explaining but hopefully you can see what I did. The colors I had selected for this are for aged bones and for a dark setting but feel free to use your own colors.

Final Result

This is a tutorial to show my 'lazy' way of colouring digital pictures. My other technique is a little more complicated and is used more for painting lineless portraits now.

This one is a lot nicer than the others....but it took aaalooot more time ;_;

I'm sorry if the way I word/explains things is wonky, it makes sense to me :shrug: also, there might be grammatical errors because I flattened everything before I editted it...whoopsie ^^;

Hope this helps, I'd love to see the results if anyone uses this! :D

I had a tutorial on drawing chains up before, but it was so old, horrible and outdated that it made my eyes bleed so I made a new one. :aww:

That's pretty much how I draw all the chains lately. It's made with Corel Painter in mind, but you can probably replicate the process using other stuff such as Photoshop.

In step 2 I mentioned checking "Preserve Transparency". Just to be clear, that setting stays on for the whole tutorial. Really helps with getting highlights and shadows placed right, particularly for smallish chains where it'd be easy to miss them otherwise.

Oh and the brush settings are as they appear in the Brush Creator.

You can see the results here, for example.


Edit: If you're a Photoshop user, here's advice for creating the brush as kindly provided by *cheshirepanda:

-Take a drawn chain image and 'Define Brush Preset'
-In 'Brush Tip Shape' under 'Brush Presets' Set Spacing to 201% (Or to what makes them evenly spaced)
-Under 'Shape Dynamics' under 'Angle Jitter', set drop down menu to 'Direction'
And theres the settings!

Among Lady Kalysia’s possessions of her life during the Mad King’s reign, there is one item in particular that was presented to her as a love token when she was courted by Prince Imrek before she accepted to be his consort in decades close to when his father fell to the maddening whispers of the Dragonqueen. While it is oft told that Kalysia held no speakable love for Imrek, she still held a certain fondness for the day he presented her with this blade; it formerly belonging to a direct descendant of Rothelim’s children who travelled long to seek out their estranged kin in the desert realms of Zerran. And, as it was eventually founded, the first wielder of the blade was a daughter of Eluneysa’s line, Rothelim and Esha’s first born.

With this in mind, Eluneysa’s line is thought the only one between Rothelim and Esha's known three daughters that mingled with blood beyond the Middle Realms. It was said as much when Imrek once sailed to the Diseth Kingdom for sake of finding renewed trade between them and was presented this blade as a token of his people who lived there among those who worshipped the holy goddess Elora and her chosen acolytes.

As such, the blade may very well have been an ancient artefact that was made well during the timeline when the first Phoenix King lived among Ailyrenai’s mortal nelri. For this, Kalysia cherished it for its significance to her people, though it is understood she later presented it to the priestess order of the Three Sisters as tithing when she was blessed with her first child to Evaryr, among other gifts of remarkable generosity from the fair lady. Some say she had done so to put aside memories between her and Imrek and her strained relationship to the old throne.

Edit and note to self: when in doubt and suffering from not having a stable muse in your life, there is one thing that can curb it a little. MUSIC. Much thanks to certain tracks from Grandia II's OST. Ah, good memories...

another monster huge tutorial... but I've got screen shots and illustrations so hopefully it won't be too much information overload!

I'm not much of a writer or a graphic designer, so I'm always open for suggestions when it comes to making tutorials. Feel free to let me know if you found this useful/totally incomprehensible/whatever.

edit 12/18/08: Wow, thanks for the DD on this! Texture detailing is just a little thing, but I love doing it, so I'm happy to share what I've learned with you all :)

I'll update this with some lore eventually, but long story short, these are a Zaira's blades, of Zerran descent. It's likely they were used for ceremonial purpose in the woman's dancing arts, so whether they were items used for bloodshed is questionable. Given their antiquity too, the lady who wielded them was likely oathsworn and or married to a character of great standing, and may have been handed down to a Zaira House's matriarch or someone of equal standing, after the first wielder's mortal time.

Anyhoo, I do plan on drawing a Zaira next. Mmm... fanservicey... >_>
