I get a lot of requests asking for a tutorial or guide or walkthrough or whatever of how I draw things. So now Iíve finally got around to making it. Iím not guaranteeing anything from this other than revealing the specific techniques I use to draw what I draw. I might get around to making another guide thatís less technical and focuses more on composition, proportion, that stuff.
- Download - for Photoshop - Contains 3 brushes. That's it, that's all I ever needed. - must have a graphic tablet for brushes to work efficiently - Resize your brushes to suit your needs
To install: In Photoshop, with the brush tool selected, right click on your canvas. A Tab will pop up. On that tab, click on the sideways arrow icon on the right side. In that menu, select "replace brushes...". Find the file on your computer and tada! You got the most simple brush set in the world
One of the more theoretical things I've written but in a way, it helps make sense of a lot of things artists do. Some of this I picked up glancing around with texts about drawing manga, but luckily it turns out that my time wasn't entirely wasted.
Also check out what I've written for ... the eyes: [link] ... the nose: [link] ... the legs: [link] ...the ears, tail, and the core: [link]
And there happens to be a wiki article about neoteny: [link]
A little perspective thing I did today. Perspective is a powerful tool to use and people dismiss of it because it looks scary, but it's something really worth spending your time on. It really helps your storytelling if used correctly. It’s not perfect by any means but perspective is a lot based on the artist own sensibility, I merely offer a starting point.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR 1000+ WATCHERS! And here's my gift to you! I figured that a tutorial will be the most beneficial for most of the people who watch me regardless if they draw or not.
So this is the way I colour. I thought doing of doing a digital tutorial but there are already many tutorials that explain most of the techniques i use (which is just painting, blending and using layers such as multiply,overlay on top). However I dont think there are very many tutorials that explain how to use copics AND colour pencils as one material. And that's how I colour
I'm sorry, this is my first time making a tutorial so I was being dumb (and photoshop too) and friggin merged all the layers because the file size was too big to work on ps. Then I realised I forgot to change the colour of the bg! DX So that's why the colour is horrible, hopefully you can read it clearly And maybe the photos are a bit blurry also;;; OTL
I swear I was going to add a better design after I've finished placing anything but too late now >_>
Anyway hope you all enjoy this, hope you learn something! ^^
P.S Sayoko's legs at the bottom should be much darker and I completely forgot about that DX
Things I forgot to add(because im such a ditz) I used A4 Smooth Bristol paper For the white highlights I used a small brush and Copic Opaque white ink: [link] On tracing: "I trace the digitally-fixed sketch to clean paper and do it lightly. Of course by tracing you won't get all the details but you will get the basic shapes and position which is all you need, and you can stop tracing and re-draw all the details in again."
