yay i finally found out how to use the note tool XD so this time its time for a REAL tutorial! WORDS AND EVERYTHING!!!
go here: [link]

i dont even know if dA can host videos.. and for how long...

anyway reason for this tutorial is because i know from experience extracting a lineart and preparing it for coloring can be a pain in the ass especially when you dont know what to do, so i decided the first actuall one will be just about that.
i think both traditional and digital artists can find use with this tutorial :)

so here im explaining the basics like
:bulletblue: difference between background layer and layer0,
:bulletblue: using multiply option on a layer
:bulletblue: using levels
:bulletblue: using channels,
:bulletblue: using transparency layer option
:bulletblue: using clipping mask.

i hope i didnt forget anything....

original time it took me to finish this tutorial was 35 minutes.

many have been curious about my work method.

well to fully grasp that i must first explain my personal origins
1 i was a traditional painter and drawer?...that doesnt sound right...

batman huntress comission by nebezial

2 i was a traditional sculptor..alas photos of that stuff mostly got lost :(
so here is what i did in high school.... by nebezial


i practiced abour 17 yeears now to get this bunch of mostly self taught techniques to work

most of my stuff is a digital painting now, made or drawn in photoshop cs3. never switched higher as cs3 satisfied all my photoshoppin needs

i used to do quite a bit of modelling in 3d studio max, but  it was too technical of a program so eventually i gave it up and completely switched to zbrush as it provided me with excellent set of organinc modelling and texturing tools

aand some of that

my skills are practice based. they have improved over time, i was not born with them, they will keep improving with hard work and perseverance

now, for the curious ones who still havent seen these

aaand here is the link to my most important weapon developed about 10 years ago...by pure accident XD
blender brush by nebezial


my workflow nowadays mostly consists of mixing 3d models i make in zbrush, mostly of dragons, monsters armors, immovable stuff , and painting, but it all depends on my mood as there is also the fact that i like switching styles around

aaand i have done quite a few of those XD
old stuff 11 by nebezial

motherfucker was  all no nose before voldy made it popular XD....tho honestly, he was very much inspired by general thade from  tim burtons planed of the apes.. bad movie, magnificent villain!

albert einstein defined madness as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results...

i call that practice, and  it does make a world of difference!

also , proper video tutorials coming soon... also  i'm green lantern!

:new:
so here is a new one :)

its about exracting lineart from background layer, after you scanned/had your image flattened down.
on this one i actuall managed to fingure how note tool works so i am actually writing as im demonstrating things :D
go here---> www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ch0bB…

also check my husbands tutorials, they are at the bottom of the journal :) also newly added :) 


finally as promised i made a video demonstration about painting a picture in photoshop.

i started from scratch, made a sketch in photoshop and from there started painting. for the overall image it took me 3 hrs so i was rushing a bit, so please exuse anatomiocal mistakes.

Also, i started off with only basic brushes, and i made advanced ones as the video progressed. that way i wanted to show you various purpose for different brushes and how to use them.
i didnt put any text in this demonstration, since this is just for viewing the process, but i plan on making shorter - more specific video tutorials later on. and hopefully maybe be able to post theme here on dA.

video is divided in 4 parts:

:bulletblue:part 1: duration 10 min  - sketching up, placing flat colors and working on the background, creating brushes.
:bulletblue:part 2: duration 15 mn   - placing flat colors on the character, painting the character. mostly the face, creating hair brush.
:bulletblue:part 3: duration 11 min  - continuing to paint the character, applying textures, finishing up
:bulletblue:part 4: duration 15 min  - finishing up the background, creating brushes for ground, trees etc.


i also posted a preview here on dA just so you can see what to expect
painting video preview by calisto-lynn

for the final image i decided to take my time and recompose it a bit, also i fixed few anatomical mistakes and redrew the winchester rifle by using reference.

if you want to be a visual storyteller this is it!, never forget, you are drawing people, that act and react, they emote and gesticulate you would think this was obvious but its so easy to fall into the routine of 5 expressions , angry sad sexy smiling and serious, that we end up forgetting there are so many nuances inbetween... so, a tip for anyone who wants to develop, study expressions, study them from movies, from photos, from animations

see what makes it all tick, and you will find that your characters are starting to breathe....

yeah..... i have been working for 15 hours straight now so im a little meta right about now.... aand my capillary has burst
