Hello everyone! Here's my first watercolor tutorial! I hope you'll find it useful ^_^ more to come soon!

I USE MANY LAYERS OF WATERCOLOR TO ACHIEVE VIVID COLORS AND REALLY DARK SHADOWS. Once again, it's really important that you wait for one layer to dry before doing another one! Good luck!

Warning: Image Size is approx 700x4800 it's huge. Also you must have moderate knowledge of Photoshop! Get familiar with the program and experiment for a while~

*HOW TO MAKE A TRANSPARENT BG IN SAI? I direct you to here! ->…

If not, you have to do the old fashion way of saving your picture as a .psd file in SAI then opening it in Photoshop and save it as a .PNG there to achieve the transparent background.



THIS SOUNDS REALLY MEAN BUT PLEASE KNOW I'M NOT TECH SUPPORT!! If your pen pressure doesn't work, you can't do this or that because you're lacking a program, or something isn't updated I'm not going to help you. Don't ask me questions that can easily be answered by my tutorial or google please! I'm really impatient when it comes to people asking questions to things that are answered or lazy people that want to be hand-fed after I explained things to them. I put in a lot of effort in making a tutorial and to have that shoved aside just to be asked to put in more effort to explain things to you I've already explained is really disrespectful and irritating.

But if you are honestly confused by something in this tutorial that you can't figure out after putting in the effort to backtrack, repeat steps, and examine then please ask! I'm friendly in that regards but I'm really tired of people who want to be handheld so I won't respond to you if the answer is reasonably visible. (wow nia you're such a good, nice, patient person.)


Anyway! I got inspired by a note I got basically asking how I do my art editing! In the spirit of the holidays (and my free time) I decided to do an updated tutorial on my Photoshop editing! Hm, looking back I realize I was quite vulgar and rude in my past tutorials when explaining things. LOL oops. Well, this is all very SFW!! not a single cuss~ Leave a comment below if you want to see another type of tutorial and I will consider it~ Thank you very much for your support and I hope everyone has a fantastic holidays!

Tools Used

Tablet: Wacom Bamboo Fun CTE-450

accidental spur of work motivation at 2 am and made a ref for my new persona, Wolfe

uh basically all you need to kno is that they are essentially a ghost! while they look a lot like a canine, they really arent, and are little more than a mass of tumultuous emotional residue

due to being borderline they are prone very often to extreme anger and extreme fear. they are sharp and intimidating but above all else, they are afraid and merely crave companionship

design-wise they are almost always depicted with chromatic distortion due to them being a ghost. if you ever wanna draw them but cant figure out how to do the distortion or are using a program that cant do that, then dont worry about it. its not really that important

EDIT 1/24/11: FINALLY updated!!! I've been wanting to do this for over a year and I finally got the motivation to do so! I think the improvement was definitely needed!
Credit for the feral (wolf) form goes to :iconklakklak:. I used her free wolf template: Thanks! :hug:

EDIT 12/12/14: You can finally color the male and female linearts!!! 

Anyways, I hope you enjoy! I really had fun re-doing this! I'm surprised and honored at how popular this guide has become, so thank you all so very much for your support! :heart:

About Werewolves
    They are simply humans with the ability to shift into a werewolf or wolf. To some, its the other way around. The human is actually their mask, or camouflage. It is what keeps them safe from man (who they believe are the real enemies), though not all werewolves believe in this.
     Werewolves have two basic forms, the feral (wolf) form, which is the natural wolf to blend in better with nature and their ancestors, then there is the anthro form, which is the bipedal werewolf form.
     Werewolves take pride in their heritage and prefer to live in the wild like their ancestors, the wolves, do. Some prefer to live in packs, others on their own. They need to stay safe from humanity and their identities must be kept secret.
Werewolf Mythology
     According to very old legends,

Twokinds Tutorials - Digitigrade Legs

Looking around Deviantart, I noticed that there weren't very many good, detailed guides on drawing characters with digitigrade legs, like those featured on my Keidran and Basitin races. Digitigrade, for those unaware, is a term for an animal that walks on their digits (toes) rather that flat-footed, as we humans do. This style of character design can be difficult for someone unused to this type of anatomical structure. Now, I am not claiming to be any sort of expert. But I have been drawing these guys for more than ten years now, and I often get asked how I draw certain things. So this is not necessarily a "how to draw" tutorial" as it is a "how I draw" tutorial, if you get my meaning.

I hope this information can prove useful for those of you who are aspiring artists, or at least interesting to those who wish to learn more about how I go about my drawing process. So without further adieu, please allow Flora to demonstrate for you how it works! Enjoy!
