I really don't get what you did on the last step. It's like everything changed after the last step... what magic did you use?

i just changed the colors of the black lineart and added some soft gradients/color modifications with semi-transparent rectangles :] or more simply put: color grading.

I've heard a lot about oekaki, could you explain what it is?
Someone said it was learning to draw by song or something and others say its the japanese word for doodle online...

there is a link in the description to the wikipedia page about oekaki.

I came back to read this after faving it years ago.. but I think the new auto resize feature made it super tiny ;3; I can't read it

could you make it available for download? full view doesn't make it big enough to where we can read it anymore D:

heel handig, zelfs als je gewoon ms paint werkt!
dit heeft me echt heel erg geholpen bij dit [link]!
maar...met paint duurt het te lang om het nog een oekaki te noemen -.-;
loish's avatar
blij dat het geholpen heeft! paint blijft een moeilijke want je kan er geen maskers in maken ofzo.. maar altijd goed om ergens te beginnen!
