AdvancedCellShading - Tutorial

By Lizkay
My Advanced Cell Shading Tutorial based on one of my last pics, I still don't finished this pic ;) So well no complete result so far.
This is how I color my gradient cell shaded pieces, hopefull helpful and understandable, if you find any mistake etc. just tell me, a HTML verion of this on can be also found on under Tutorials.

EDIT: There is this sentence at the begining which tells you to go "HERE" at first if you want to work that one out with traditional drawn and scanned pics, this tutorial can be found here: [link] !!!!!

This tutorial was very helpful and filled with a lot of useful information. I have just started working with a new style of art and this has definitely helped me along the way. If you would like to see the first piece I have tried using this tutorial, it can be found here [link] . Thank you for making such a lovely tutorial available to aid artists like me. :)

Wouldn't this be considered gradient shading? Ah well, very nice tutorial.

so cool & helpful! how do you get your lasso tool to have really smooth edges? mine always looks pixely...
Lizkay's avatar
If your lasso tool is selected be sure the 'anti-alias' option is checked, it's visible on the top-menue bar ;)
you can even add a number highter than 0 in that feather: area up there to make it more smooth :)

By far the most useful and time saving tutorial ever. I have seen it on your site but i was never able to comment/ show my appreciation on it. I would have never thought of coloring like that. Thank you Very much for this wonderful Tutorial.

and to answer the old Gimp question above Yes it is able to lock transparent pixels (similar spot as CS2) but it could be a newer feature since 2005.
Lizkay's avatar
Thanks a lot! :heart:
There is a way to make the process a lot faster, instead of working with the locked layers you can use masks, that's what I do for all my newer images and it works faster and is also easier ;)

Thank you I will give that a try. Learning techniques are so fun! =D
