Anime + Manga CG Tutorial by Sagakure Anime + Manga CG Tutorial by Sagakure
At last, I finally found time to make a CG tutorial. :D

I'd just put "CG tutorial" as title, but I feared people might think I meant Code Geass. XD *lol*


I hope it will be helpful and cause people to draw Vampire Knight fanarts. XD

I tried to make it usable by people on Paint Tool SAI or on Photoshop.

It's not "The Method" as there's no such thing. It's just a bunch of things I do that hopefully you may find helpful or handy. :)


Does anyone knows how to have a thumbnail that's a different image? D:
I made a cute little pic for the thumbnail, and well, it's only letting me pick one file. XD;;


Edit: AUGH. I spent so long proofreading this thing, and now I take one look at it and it's infested with typos still! T___T

Edit 2: In case you don't know the two softwares, here's what they are: SAI ( [link] / [link] ) and Photoshop ( [link] ).

Ooooh. So it's by tweaking greyscale lines that you get them so narrow-looking. I thought there was some way to make black marker lines narrower than they are on paper.

I love Vampire Knights! :O Unfortunately, I can't really draw manga to save my life :3 It's a brilliant tutorial, though, it'll help me with the line art I'm colouring at the moment. Although I've done the skin, but I'm really stuck on the hair. I don't have a tablet or photoshop, I use Pixlr.com to colour. How would you recommend I shade the hair?

Thanks! :D

I'm new to CG and I've noticed this from other artists, but how did you get the shaded fringes in the hair pointy like that? I've seen some artists pull it off with one stroke and I'm curious if you know the brush settings to get that effect

Sagakure Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2011
I use the basic pencil brush, there's no different settings. ^^;

Are you by any chance drawing with a mouse? That would explain your problem. If you are using a tablet, check to see if your pressure sensitivity is on. If it is, it should be pointy (unless you're pressing super hard on the pen.)
If you are using a mouse, use the vector layers instead of the raster layers, that way you can adjust the pointiness of the line after you draw it.

If you're using a tablet and the pressure sensitivity is working, it should be pointy from the start if you draw it pointy, it will act just like drawing with a normal pen/brush/etc. in real life.
