Hi people ^^

I'm not expecting this to particularly take off XD But for a couple of friends who wanted to learn (including one who refuses to get a dA account <.<)) and because I was bored, I decided to make a tutorial/guide!

It's not very good, I'm bad at explaining things. But if it is any help to you, please let me know. I included the tools at the side to start off with just to make things a bit clearer and leave it up to you later on.

Here's the finished pic:


And here's some other art I've used this method on:

Thanks for the tutorial, it basicly tells everything what beginner needs (only my opinion for this being so great for beginners, because im beginner :D) and this guide really helps, since you tell every single detail what the 'student' needs, keep going with amazing job!

Hi there, I just came across your tutorial a few weeks ago, and I must say this has absolutely covered almost all questions I had on digital painting. Thank you so much!




I used the technique for the skin and lips on this image here. I you wanted to take a look! :D
