Process of Doom

[edit] the finished pic is here---> [link]

Not really a tutorial, more like how I drew the picture. I don't like to call it a tutorial because I don't think there's a right way to draw an anime picture, and if there is, mine's certainly not right.

Also, this isn't exactly what I do on every picture either. The reason why I made this is cus people have been asking. The reason why I don't want to do this is cus every picture I drew almost has a different process. Like the background thing, I only started doing this on the last CG that I made, and I only started trying out the dotting way of shading for texture.

The thing is huge and excessively detailed, so if you know your computer is not competent, don't open it.

The real image will be uploaded later.

[add] if you want a more dial-up friendly version, see my site in the "stuff" section. but my site's main page is not dial-up friendly either.

this is awesome.I neither have a scanner nor a tablet currently,so I just use PS Pen tool to trace my pencil sketches and make the lineart and i always find it so tiring.the line weights don't look good since it turns out uniform.i just have to ask,would it turn out okay if i just use the mouse to make those "dot dot do" shadows?

sure, anything that you think is most effective. I use mouse frequently for things I need precision and stability.
