A delectable tutorial that describes how the ROMANTICALLY APOCALYPTICromanticallyapocalyptic.com/ cinematic comic is made in the studio using: Photoshop, live actors, dead actors, sexy assistants, greenscreen, a camera, and a Wacom tablet. There's generally about 1-3 days worth of shooting, plus 30-60 hours of photoshop brushwork per each episode

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.
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.
The font was created using free software: Fony, bdfresize, potrace, autotrace and Fontforge in Kubuntu 8.04. It was inspired by city bus display (which was much more simple) and designed by me in 2003 (see [link]), and now it is converted to TTF. The font contains some UTF-8 latin characters, I am working on other latin characters and Russian letters.
The font is called "Small", because it is small I plan to make "Bus Led Display Large" (I have some letters drawn yet).

The software I use is very unfriendly so any technical comments would be very appreciated.

A lot of people have been asking how I use halogen lights and still manage to come out with photos that don't have that "yellow" tone to them. (and while I prefer fixing the problem with filters or by using natural light, sometimes the "perfect" shot has already been taken with crappy lighting. Photoshop for the win.) Here's the answer to their question, in a convenient action form!
All layers are COMPLETELY adjustable and labeled for your convenience.
PLEASE DO NOT promote this as your own action or "re-upload" as others have been doing. I worked hard on it and honestly, it makes me feel like ripping your head off when I see that you've stolen it.
And obviously, favorites and other comments are also greatly appreciated. Enjoy!
Oh, and also, the vignetting on the final image is from a previous action of mine and is not included in this action. Please either download my other vignetting action or add the look in for yourself.
