The final "stretch" set from the Kickstarter project was a redo of a series I did waaaaaaay back when, featuring some air assault hijinks. There's a little rappelling, a little fast-roping, even a little helocasting; all re-imagined into this odd sci-fi 'F2' universe. As always, there was no intent to portray actual techniques, just some 'one frame' cinematic fun.
Just a preview for now, with the rest to follow over the next several days.
First off, forgive any spelling errors. I wrote it in Photoshop and I should be in bed, but I really wanted to get this done!
I hope this helps anyone who is curious how to cell shade, or just wanted to see how I do my work. Understandably this is a tutorial on a male Tauren (from World of Warcraft) and not on a human, but I'll try to get a human one done in the future.

Basically its a tutorial on how to hand draw fanart. Its old...and i was rushed so the grammar, and spelling is prolly bad XD SORRY. Ill explain anything you don't understand.
IT was part of my school of art thing i had running a few years back. If you are interested just click on the blog above and follow me/subscribe or get on the waiting list buy noting me. (don't worry the link is work safe)I ll be happy to take in your questions, and suggestions from future tutorials.
Its a bit hard to read from the jpg preview file so id suggest DL the pdf version.
So here's how i go about doing stuff....im sorry i dont have better pictures
Step 0 : imagine to detail what you want to draw...i cannot stress this fact enough...many artists just start drawing hoping their skill will bring out something nice but you want a clear picture in your mind even before you start.
Step 0.1 : i dont have a pic for this but the first thing to do is quickly doodle down what you have in your mind as it usually wont stay in there long... lol like the poses, camera angle and stuff.
Step 1 :I quickly draw over the doodle giving shape to characters..like their characteristic features...
Step 2 : I finish my sketch and blot in some shadows....i always try to get how my finished art will look like but you should be careful to not go into details so early or you will ruin the holistic nature of the art.
Step 3 : Simple Clean Lineart.
Step 4 : Block in flat colours (No shading business)
Step 5 : Imagine one or multiple light sources and start shading....you might need a lil observation from real life for this...
Step 6 : Some tweaking, add Goku's kamehameha, flash's lightning, captain Planets stars and stuff....and Bg
Note: Since then i have begun to do the background first as this was a more correct approach.....its better to do it this way, because when we paint our characters we can put more realistic colors on them suitable to the background.
Step 7 : Post on deviantArt and hope for comments
PS: these things take time...to learn and to draw....it took me about 5 years on and off to learn human anatomy and comic drawings and each piece takes anywhere between a week to 3,4 months to maybe longer...so have patience...it pays off slowly!!
Here is an overview of how I would apply texture/or patterns over clothing.
This example is looking at a pinstriped suit pattern... but I'm pretty certain the same principles would apply if the cloth was say, checkered or tartan. I haven't tried it out yet, so let me know if it works for you!
It also doesn't have to be for a "realistic" style to. If you have a cartoon-like illustration or semi-realistic, it's a good way to get a consistent looking pattern going on!
Also there is probably a shit ton of spelling/grammar errors in there...but whatevs lol Actual pic:
