*EDIT*
THIS IS IMPORTANT :stare:
SIMPLY SPRAY FABRIC PAINT IS A LIE!! ALL LIES! I WASH THE HOODIE AFTER 3 @#$@% MONTHS OF DRYING AND THE BLACK IS NOW A GRAY!! UNACCEPTABLE :iconisayplz:!!
:iconatomicrageplz: FFFTTTTTT i can fix it in my pictures in photoshop but it won't be the same :iconforeveraloneplz:
:iconmiradafijaplz: i need better fabric paint to fix it apparently

SO THIS TUTORIAL IS NOW VOID
*END EDIT*


Part one of my tutorial showing the process of how I painted a white hoodie to look like Mr. Snippy's jacket from the webcomic Romantically Apocalyptic by `alexiuss

I just knew after making it and posting pictures everyone would ask where I got it or how i made it xD.

Part two

FAQ's:

Q: Does simply spray really not fade like they say?
A: OF COURSE IT DOES FADE, the spray fabric paint never
works, and i'm an idiot for using it xD

Q: SO WAIT WHAT HAPPENED??
A: After a 3 months of drying and setting, i washed the
hoodie once and the black changed to a gray :|
don't use simply spray is all i can say... still don't know what
to use to fix it yet...

Q: Where can I find your pattern for the hoodie?
A: Here! [link] :)

Q: Can I use this tutorial? I want to use it to help me cosplay Snippy!
A: Sure! that's what it is here for xD just do not re-post this tutorial anywhere else
without my permission please.

Q: Where can I get simply spray?
A: Well here is their webpage [link]
and the have a list of retailers where they sell their paints here [link] It seems
that they only list where you can get it in the U.S.

Q: How much is simply spray?
A: :| [link]

Q: How many cans did you use?
A: 6

Q: I'm confused/nervous about how to use this paint! ;-;
A: watch one of their videos of how to paint with simply spray :) [link]
and they have some general tips on their webpage [link]

Q: Can I use spray paint instead?
A: UHhhhh, I wouldn't suggest spray paint at all, it dries kinda stiff and
smells really bad unlike simply spray which dries soft and doesn't have a smell! :D

Q: Where did you get the hoodie? Did you make that to?
A: No I didn't make it xD, I got it at sears, it was only $20, but you can buy a
similar hoodie pretty much anywhere! and perhaps for cheaper!

Q: Did you ever use that white masking tape?
A: No I didn't, the blue tape was much better cause it was thicker, I'm pretty
sure you could use the white kind if you don't have painters tape.

Q: Who is Mr. Snippy?/ Where can I find this webcomic?
A: `alexiuss First episode: [link]


have another question? leave a comment! :)
and I'd love to see what people make after reading this tutorial!

This is not really a tutorial but more like a walkthrough. Here I will go briefly through all of stages of making this neb.

The reason why I think it can be beneficial is because it explains an easy way of making nebs even for those who cannot draw them with mouse/tablet :D

The time needed strongly depends on the amount of details you want to add to the neb. Sometimes, you really don't have to go too detailed.

Anyway, as a super sweet bonus to this you will be able to download a full-res PSD of the neb to see all the layers and settings I've used. I guess I'm too kind here but what the hell! :D
Also it would save me some time explaining things ;)


Sorry for external links :) You can go to this link directly and just browse all images here or read and see each image separately. The link for all pictures

(также для русскоговорящих ссылка на демиарт, где я объясняю то же на русском ;) )

[link]

Ok, so here goes:

Step 1:

I started with a simple starfield. You can see that some areas are deleted. I've done this on the final stages to add volume to the neb.

[link]

Step 2:

Here, just as an example, I've used the texture of Venus. Basicly, you can use any interesting texture with uneven disctribution of light/shadow parts.

I've made couple of copies of this layer. First was blurred and set to linear dodge (~10%) as a base for the second layer which was set to color dodge and with increased contrast. The third one was basicly a layer to add glow, you can see that in the PSD.

[link]


Step 3:

On this stage I've started adding photos of clouds. The were manipped so that you get only cloud shapes on black background (the technique is described pretty well here:
[link] ). They were then set to color dodge, low opacity.

We need them to add shape to our future neb. Also on this stage it will be clear how the neb will look like. The position depends on the texture and clouds you're using and is totally up to you.

[link]

Step 4:

Here I've used chalk brush with shape dynamics and scaterring enabled.

[link]

With small bright brush I've painted over the edges and with a big brush in dark areas to add contrast.

[link]

Step 5:

This was the longest stage. Here I was adding glow in different areas with lens flare. Basicly, I just created a black circle and filled it with a lens flare, then duplicate, set to color dodge and you just go all over :) Remember to bring down the opacity.

[link]

After I was finished, I duplicated them all and set to even lower opacity to make the transition softer. And also painted a small galaxy :D

[link]


Step 6:

Here I've added dark clouds to bring more details. I've used cirrus clouds and edited them the same way as before, just now they were inverted (ctrl+I) and set to multiply.

[link]

Step 7:

On this stage I just added bigger stars all over and worked on the colors more.


That's it :)


Use, abuse, do whatever you want, just remember, if you want to thank me - I prefer gifts and money :D

A TUTORIAL OF INTEREST PER FAN REQUESTS!

"HOW TO BE A FREELANCE ILLUSTRATOR?"

Step 1: CREATE AND POST!
So you has drawing talents?
Don't be scared to post work on deviantart and other websites such as conceptart.org or cghub
Post as much art as possible. Draw 10 hours everyday.
Post an artwork daily or once per week minimum if the art is really detailed.
Forget all other jobs if you want to freelance. It takes incredible amounts of time, dedication and a massive portfolio to be a freelancer.
You will need at least 1-2 years for just drawing and posting. Nothing but drawing. I don't care how, but it must be done. Draw and post work.... everyday... for a few years to get your work known!

Stuck in an art block? Don't know what to draw?
Want to get really motivated by your own watchers from DA?
Start a livestream session and have fun drawing whatever silliness your friends ask of you! It's great practice!
Get some energetic music to go with it!

Want to promote your work nicely on DA?
A collaboration is the best kind of feature on deviantart and they're not hard to get unlike daily deviations!
Ask well known deviants if they would like to collaborate with you!
Their features will give you hundreds to thousands of new watchers, depending on how famous a deviant-artist is.
If they feature your painting, it will get 10'000-100'000 views! That's better than any art gallery in the real world!
For example - want to collaborate with me? Send me a note!

Also, submit your work to groups. Groups is a great way to get watchers.

NEVER, EVER UNDERVALUE YOUR WORK!
CHARGE 100 TIMES WHAT YOU THINK IT'S ACTUALLY WORTH!
Once you start charging 20 dollars for an artwork you will be in a spiral to client hell, where clients give a pittance and expect a masterpiece and then direct similar ass-hat clients your way that propagate the same horribleness that makes value of your art worth very little, providing nothing but shame.
Instead of wasting time arguing with clients/working for a pittance do collaborations with other artists and expand your portfolio as much as possible!
Don't waste time on "ART PROGRAMS in universities". Very often, they will teach you almost nothing and put you in hideous debts, especially if there are a lot of "liberal studies" involved in the course.
Look into colleges or private lessons instead, of you have money to spend and need motivation.
Instead of wasting $50'000+ dollars on a degree, live with your parents and draw non stop everyday, trying new styles, creating new paintings, collaborating with new artists. Make friends on da- as many friends as possible. Learn techniques from experienced deviants!

STUDYING ONLINE IS EASY! Browse AND TRY OUT ALL TUTORIALS: [link]


HOW MUCH TO CHARGE CLIENTS FOR ARTWORK?
Here's an archive page for association of illustrators:
[link]
[link]

Generally you should charge around $250 to $10'000 dollars per artwork. If you're charging less, you're severely undervaluing yourself and bringing down the art market.
The lower range of $250 should be charged for small, easy commissions like personal portraits, simple interior illustrations.
The higher range should be charged for big companies that plan to do something with the work - print/distribute it worldwide, or want to get full exclusive rights for the work, or want "work for hire" (basically they won't credit you), etc. If a corporation makes money off your drawing skills, charge them well for it! Corporations can afford to pay lots, if you know how much your work is REALLY worth to them.

I state this again- it is better to draw personal paintings or collabs than to work for a pittance for companies!

You can sell personal or collab paintings as prints FOREVER and no client will ever tell you what you can/cannot with your OWN work.
A nice personal painting can make you $10'000 dollars in your lifetime if you sell prints of it successfully online!
