80's Anime Tutorial- PSD/MDP included!
Some people asked me how I do my 80's anime pictures: 
The method has changed every time slightly, especially since I am still trying to perfect it. The most successful are probably both the ones with Shuu (purple/black haired girl)
This is the image I'm basing the tutorial off of: 
Personally, I feel like it didn't turn out as nicely as the one of Shuu, but eh, I kinda messed up on the green shirt and the background- it's not as gouachey as I want it to be. 
I'll include the PSD and MDP of some of the pictures above so you can reverse engineer/reference them!
You will need: 
Internet (optional)
MS Paint (optional)
Phone with camera (the more horrible the better)(optional)
Now, let's begin!!
Step 1: Ur Sketch

U make it.
