Well, I always "teach" something to my friends... why can't do a tutorial for everyone? Well, this will be 2 parts combining Phosothop and SAI tutorial, one with the lineart and other with the colouring Hope you learn something of it!! Enjoy!!
Just a simple lineart I did today ^^
Since I haven't posted anything in a while....heh, so yeah.
I did this with the pen tool O.O my first time using it, IT HAD TOTALLY DRIVEN ME MAD until I got a hang of using it, but now I think I fell in love with it, LOL
It's once again, Princess raine
You're free to color it as long as you credit me and tell me with a note
Have fun ^^
p.s: Download to get the full size if u wanna use it
Since this is really outdated I wont make an english one but I translated the parts so those ppl who don't understand german can somewhat tell what the have to do to achieve this kinda look. Plz remember that this is totally not my coloration style anymore and I think that you can find way more effective tuts for open canvas here on dA.
Translation STEP ONE: Do a sketch STEP TWO: Create a new Layer (Opacity 30-40% depends on your likes) on top of your sketch. Now Zoom to ca. 300% and do the outlines very carefully. Sometimes it is better to work with small strokes to get a decent result. Always remember your drawings shouldn't always have black outlines choose different colors. STEP THREE:Hide your Sketch Layer, select the Outline Layer and do some brightness&contrast correction (Filter>Tone of Color>Brightness&Contrast) until you think the result fits your lines... STEP FOUR:Now we're starting with the coloration itself. 1st create a new Layer under your outline Layer so you'll not harm your outlines during the coloration process. Always remember the Outline Layer is the top layer. To make things easier create an additional layer under your outlines for your background. Since I wasn't as experienced at the time I did this Tutorial I colorated the pic with a white background BUT since your background helps you to create the feeling of your picture you should always pic atleast the Background Color FIRST).
STEP FIVE: Skin. The Basic Skintone Color in this picture was #fffbe3, light shadows #ffe5ca and the really dark shadows #ffe5ca (use whatever color you likeee~) Just fill every skin part with the basic color. Do some shading with the watercolor tool and if you want some strokes to become softer use the blur tool, but don't overdo it.
STEP SIX: Since Eyeballs are round you should colorate them like a round object. So add shadings to the white part of the eye (I dunno what it's called and since this is a simple translation this will do it). Choose a few colors for the iris (i think) I chose 4 Blue Tones that seem to look a little bit alike and just repeat the way you colorated skin in the step before, because basically it's always the same.
Decided I'm going to upload some line art. This one was a request, but the requester unfortunately deactivated her account for some reason, so I decided to upload the base here. ^_^
Hope you enjoy!
Here is the original pic -->
------------ It is paint friendly. If you have some version of paint that doesn't work, please either get another program or google how to make it friendly.. Don't message me asking.. I don't use paint
It's free to use, but you MUST give me credit! (Also let me know if you do use it ^_^. I'd like to see what you do).
YOU ARE NOT TO USE IT FOR YOUR OWN BENEFIT!! (to sell for points, money, ect.)
-Do not erase my signature -Do not steal it -I want to see it when it's done -Have fun with it!
Another background for anime/manga. Most mangas happens in highschool. I thought it would interesting to make such a background. You can use it for personal use. The picture is quite big. It took me the whole afternoon to do it. Let me know if you use it, I would like to see the results.
New!: I have another one for you (slightly different) here:
I drew this sketch a couple months ago and on a whim I decided to color it! yay! I was gonna have her laying on some grass, but that would've taken too long and the greens I had weren't the right colors. Too bright. So yeah!
And again I apologize to those who watch me for only updating one picture per month! Lately I've been super busy, ya know! Its the school year, what can I say?
I did a few stationary designs for AWA 2007, and this is one of them. I went with a decidedly faerie-tale theme, which I will probably revisit, and this happens to be my version of Andersen's "The Mermaid". I sell this stationary in packets with envelopes and stickers; they sold pretty well, all things considered! I'm out of stock right now, but if you're interested in getting your own stationary pack, let me know and I can print one up for you.
