EDIT: Changed the colour of the lower writing to black so it's more visible since it's on a paler background than the top writing.
Changed it so there's a version with just a grey sky and no light.

Part 1 --->

THERE, as promised since May xDD

I was going to put trees and leaves in this one as well but rocks and clouds were selfish and took up the whole tutorial :I
So there's going to have to be a part 3 xD

Anyway i say thank you to *pettyartist for the awesome brush i use for backgrounds [link] <3
i can't tell from that image which one i use but you should be able to find it from the image in the tutorial (;

Also does anyone know how to upload just one brush from your photoshop? i can only save the .abr file for all my brushes xD
i want to upload my blendy cloud brush.

Cloud and other brushes --->

Enjoy! i hope it helps some people! <3

*THE IMAGES IN THIS TUTORIAL ARE NOT FOR YOUR PERSONAL USE. THIS IS A TUTORIAL, NOT A STOCK IMAGE. YOU LOOK AT IT AND MAKE YOUR OWN. I DID NOT THINK THAT I WOULD HAVE TO CLARIFY THIS.*


A tutorial for how I personally paint grass. I also sometimes paint fur in a similar manner

PLEASE NOTE:


I usually use the 4th nib, but accidentally used the 3rd for this tut. Either should work well, depending on your personal preference.

ALSO, this isn't a technical issue with the tutorial, but I forgot to mention that backgrounds should become more desaturated the farther back that you go. Keep this in mind when drawing things far away vs close up.

ALSO, if you do not have "noise 2" or "watercolour 3 pt" then just substitute for what you do have. I am not entirely sure how I acquired these extra settings, as I have downloaded multiple user-made custom brush things for SAI. It is possible that these setting came from here-- darlingmionette.deviantart.com… -- yet I am not 100% sure.
But I do not think that there is a significant difference, if any at all, between noise and noise 2.


Painted on SAI.

HEY GUYSSS Here's the background tutorial I promised you. c: I hope you guys find it useful! I tried my best explaining how I usually do my stuff.

OMGGG, There's so many typos there! ;uuuuu; Please ignore them. :iconlazepoolplz:



Here's some reminders:

* All of my backgrounds are made in a single layer. Why? Because it's easier to blend colors. C:
* I love the overlay layer. I usually add orange, red or green to make things more vibrant.
* If you're confused, GOOGLE IT. C:

Don't be afraid to ask anything, okay? C:

EDIT: Ahhh, reading through it again, I sound too all-knowing. The stuff I put there is what I believe in and practice. ;uuuu; I didn't mean to sound too sure of what I was teaching. I might be wrong. ;uuuuuu; Big Fool Emoji-07 (Cry) [V2]

For the longest time, many people have been requesting for tutorial on how to paint/speed-paint rocks...

Well, this tutorial shows some of the ways I do it.

There are other methods I use but this tutorial shows the best examples to understanding the concept and not just the technique (well, i hope it does).

I hope it helps! :)

what software is that?
I did this in Photoshop cs2, but anyone can follow these steps using any painting/drawing software. I also just used a default brush here.

Why no textures? Rocks are often rough, right?
What is most important is to depict the form of the rock. To make it look realistic or believable, the rock should have body, and fit into it's environment. The textures are just secondary.




like my facebook page here i sometimes update it with random artworks not found here on da! :D

Finally, I uploaded this one here too, now you guys won't have to dig through my webpage for it anymore. Of course, ifyou find the layout irritating or difficult, then you can still use the one over there instead. It's basically the exact same thing , but without the fancy, dark framing device.

Even if I use PhotoshopCS4 myself,the tutorial is not program-specific (as my tutorials never are) and all you really need is a round paint brush with adjustable opacity-levels, a couple of layers and optionally some sort of smudge brush.
It is exected that you are at least somewhat familiar with whatever program you're using, as there's no "and this is how you make a new layer"-type of advice in the tutorial. That would kind of nullify the non-program-specific thing I've got going on here.

But hey, have fun!

Man, I've fallen in love with that font, Century Gothic. It's so...round and geometrical. Not the easiest to read, but sooo pretty.

I'm so sorry for my Engurishuuu really omg :iconomgcryplz:
I'm definitely not good at explaining things :iconcryforeverplz: but still I hope it helps somehow....:iconoelplz:
- Feel free to ask questions! :happybounce: I'll do my best in answering what I know.
- It's not a tutorial suited for beginners with SAI, but if you still want to try, I suggest to search first a tutorial that explains the SAI TOOLS well such as :
- I'm just showing the way I draw stars in SAI, there sure are more ways, and you're not obligated to follow it strictly! *U*
- I'd appreciate linking back something you drew using this tutorial, but it's not obligatory. :thanks::heart:

I'm sorry for that ugly star appearing there and there, I had to draw it. I HAD TO. :iconpapmingplz:

thanks so much for looking! :hug::love:

Hey guys I hope you like the tutorial. This is my first flash tutorial so bear with me please! I will be making a more detailed version as soon as I can.

Please leave feedback and also pictures you made using this tutorial! I would like to see what you make!!!


The clouds in this tutorial were actually made with a custom brush in CSP (clip studio paint pro).
However the steps I've showed will work in any program that has a smudge or blur tool and the option to make custom brushes. If you would like to download CSP but have trouble, please note or comment and I would be glad to help you out!!

How can I smudge in SAI?
"I'm a complete novice to custom brushes. As a user of SAI, however, a similar method to smudging which I have trialed is to reduce the opacity of the eraser (I experimented with 77%, which seems to be perfect for me ). You will have to create a new layer to show the light source c:" - ~Pokemoke

I've been meaning to do this for a while, but here it finally is!

Just a few hints/tips/cheat codes for background elements. This tutorial does make reference to Photoshop brushes, but so long as you have a textured brush, it is applicable to GIMP or Painter.

As stated in the tutorial, if you have any questions about anything I put up here (I know it's not terribly detailed, but I wanted to keep it simple), please feel free to comment and ask!
