If you're wondering why I'm submitting new version of this part of my tutorial again [instead of editing the old version] - that's because the old one was reported a few days ago and deleted. Yeah, some idiot apparently decided that using an anime screenshot in a tutorial is a case of art theft
I wish he [or she] waited two more days - I was in the middle of working on a new version when I read that note about deletion, lol xD Or they could just report all parts [three other also had anime screenshots] - that way I would submit all of them again.
Funny thing, when a few months ago I asked Vector Gallery Director, ^Ikue
if it's okay to use a screenshot [I was a little concerned about this], he said it's fine. Well, apparently it's not... You know, dA admins should finally make up their minds and stick to their own policy instead of confusing people.
Anyways, here's a brand new version, with [hopefully] better explanation and a sketch instead of a screenshot as a reference picture. Thank you, =Washu-M
for letting me use your drawing ^^
If there are any parts you find unclear, please dont hesitate to comment. Ill try to explain it for you once again in different words, if possible.
Also, Ill be more than happy to see your own vectors, made with the help of this tutorial. ^.^
