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.

Hey everyone, I know a lot of people enjoyed this image so I wrote up a tutorial on how I made it. Hope it helps! :)

This was a process that worked well for me on a number of character commissions. I don't really work this way anymore, but my process is always changing.

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
