Man I dont know how I missed this one, too many message boxes.Nice job love the colors specially the cool bounce lighting as well as the stone texture on the hand.

Hehe thanks. Yeah I know what you mean, it seems I blink and suddenly there's over 1k of deviation wait for me. I really should stop adding to my watch list.

Nice job! Could you point me to a good tutorial for cell shading?
TrinityMathews's avatar
There are a ton of different tutorials out there in the webz. Shouldn't be too hard to find one to show you the basics.

But I can actually give you the majority of it right now.

After you have your flats set to the midtone colors you want to use. Create a new layer above the flats, set that layer to 'Multiply', and color pick a light-mid purple color.

Use your hard brush and eraser to add and subtract shadows. Try to be very loose at first and then go back and refine them. Get messy with it, have fun trying different brushes for different effects(hard, soft, round,textured,ect).

And that is all there is to it.

Nice, I will give that a go on this four page short I'm working on. So, in the multiply layer is where I make the shadow cuts?
TrinityMathews's avatar
Yeah. Most tutorials will have you fill the layer with the color and then make cuts to bring out the lighter areas. I found it's more intuitive for me to use the brush to just add the shadows and the eraser to refine them.

Oh, and remember to turn off the opacity on the brush/eraser. It's easier to block in shadows in one pass that way

AH, I see what you mean. It sounds like I have kind of been doing that lately already. I don't really like to make selection tool cuts, I'd rather make them with brush only like you are saying. THX
