I am drawing a young muscular she elf warrior but she'll be limbless and blind because her ennemies just cuf off all her limbs (and eyes)

I tried the whole day to color a sketch, it should be a original character. I hope your tutorial can help me, will try it tomorrow :3

This tutorial is a real eye-opener for me on how to better use different layer modes, as well as considering colour selection o.o :D I love it, and I especially love how you have SO many colours involved! I can't wait to try some of this out! Thank you so much for making these tutorials! I definitely recommend them to other artists!

I /highly/ recommend getting his tutorial. This is my improvement after just watching the first 30 minutes, and then working from what I already know:
I can't wait to see how it looks after watching the whole thing!

Please buy this video. $5 is nothing! I'm 8 minutes in and have already learned so much!
The sound on the first video is terrible, but is fixed on #2. :-D

I bought the tutorial and am very happy with it :love:

Would you make another tutorial using Clip Studio or Krita in the future? I'm definitely a buyer.

I just finished the two videos and man, what a wonderful thing! I had problems with the biggest video because media player didn't run it, I had to transform it and then I could watch it. The first video is a little dificult to understand because of the microphone, but the second is ok, very understandable. The suitable thing would be having subtitles in the video, but that would be a lot of work and for the fantastic price you offer, not worth it so I suggest to add a file with the principal comments, like a scrip or something like that - you know, "minute x, dialogue x", but still I think is well explained.

Will you make more tutorials? I'll love to watch about clothes and backgrounds, maybe composition or someting like that. I know you have another tutorial, I'll buy it as soon as I can, but I hope you keep doing them :)

Oh! And thanks for doing something so wonderful for such an accessible price, and thanks for not being a patreon guy yet, I'm hating those ;P

yuchenghong i'm impressed by the level of detail achieved in so short a time, was this easy or hard for you to make in two & a half hour's, also how long have you been an artist.
