While I was still making my Vanellope cosplay, many people who I chatted about it with asked me "what the heck are you going to do for the hair candy?" That made me think that a tutorial for the candy wouldn't go un-welcomed. Plus making tutorials is really fun (though extremely labour-intensive OTL), and it's been over a year since I made my last one, so off to Photoshop it was!
I had a lot of fun making this tutorial, and I'm hoping this will be able to help out all those aspiring Vanny cosplayers out there! I actually started making this quite a while before I finished my cosplay, but then I abandoned it for a bit, only finishing it off recently, since making tutorials is a lot of work, so you have to work on it in strides. I'm hoping to do a lot more tutorials this year, so we'll see what happens.
Guidelines for using my tutorials: Kindly give credit where it is due; if you use this tutorial for your own projects, please credit me by either linking back to this deviation page, or to my dA account. Favourites are always appreciated; if you use this, I do appreciate support! Feedback is always helpful; I haven't been making tutorials for very long, so if there's anything here that you liked, or any instructions that could have been clearer, please do let me know so that I can continue to improve and help my fellow cosplayers! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
I do take tutorial requests! If there's anything you've seen me make that you would like me to make a tutorial for, please do drop me a comment! I can't guarantee that I'll get to everyone's requests, since making tutorials is a lot of work, but I will certainly make tutorials on whatever I can in order to help however I can! Thank you!

This was my submission for this contest. I didn't win, but the contest was still the perfect motivation to make more line art.
It is a PSD file (download link is on the right), which is compatible with nearly all programs, but if you need it in another format, just ask! The file is huge, by the way, because the line art is about twice this size. Also, I included lots of layers labeled for your convenience. It should be pretty easy to understand, but ask if you have any questions.
RULES: You may upload your version here on deviantART as well as other sites, but you must give a link to my profile and/or original line art AND give me full credit for the line art. You may alter the line art AS LONG AS you link to the original that is mine. If you upload your version, DO NOT submit it as a print, for the work is not entirely yours and it would be considered stealing since you intend to make a profit from work that is partially someone else's. Making points or otherwise money adoptables with this is also prohibited. Making free adoptables such as draw-to-adopts is okay so long as you credit me for the line art. if you upload your version, please send me a note or comment with a link to it so I can see it!
I'd appreciate it if you can follow these rules. They are not hard!
1. All my stock materials placed here (that excludes my art) are FREE for both COMMERCIAL & personal use.
2. You can freely use the resources in your creations, as a part of it, but you can't resell or share them as a whole in any form (this includes bundles).
3. Credits are always encouraged and a nice gesture, but they are not strictly required.
That means it'd be nice if you'd put a link back to me if you can (DA, your website), but no need to contact me if you're selling your art as a commercial work. Yes, for real.
That's it. Why am I doing this? I got sick of browsing references and textures that are "free" to use, but need to be credited everywhere - even if it's something really small - or someone will sue your ass off. So I decided if nobody else is doing it, I will.
Materials I share here are not top stock quality, so don't bother complaining, but are the ones I find useful. They are also in raw state - meaning some can have bad lights, noise etc.
They're meant to be used as references, textures and bits for matte painting, brushes etc., not photos that are good to use as a whole (although some will be good enough).
Hope you'll find them useful! More on my website, I have no time and patience to upload all of it here.
If you want to donate and support me wasting time and running around, taking shots of every silly thing I find.. I mean paying for server space of course, I will appreciate it a lot! - [link]
