Maybe one day when I'm crazy enough, I'll make a tutorial on the left half of that picture. Copic Tutorial II: [link]
HOLY FREAK THIS TOOK WAY TOO LONG. I thought I'd take a nice, relaxing break from my chaotic Anime Expo preparations and have a go at my first tutorial, but nooooooo...this thing is more stressful than an actual drawing.
But seeing that I'm a PS newbie, I'm pretty glad that I was able to at least compile all this together. I guess I picked up some bits of Photoshop knowledge over the year after all. Would be sad if I didn't.
People have been asking me to do a tutorial for a long time now, and I apologize for taking next to forever to get around to it
The thought of making a tutorial always intimidated me since I have like 234012938 WIP pictures to choose from. But I finally got it done
Compressing 15 painful hours of sweat, cursing, and flinging objects into a 670×7637 pixel tutorial is no easy task. I'm kind of sad that I had to cut like 30 pictures (about 8 steps) off from the walk through. The thing is flippin' ginormous as it is, so I couldn't make it even larger D: And excuse my random doodles. I went a little nuts on the commentary too -_-;;
This is a thank-you gift for all of my watchers and friends online, and hopefully it'll be of some use to those of you who are starting out with markers :>FAQ's "Where do you get those markers? How much are they?!"
You can get Copics at local art stores (if you're lucky), and definitely online. Aside from a Japanese bookstore I go to, Kinokuniya, I also order them from online at [link]
. THEY ARE NOT CHEAP. They can cost from $4.50 to $6.50 each, so shop smart :> "What paper do you use?"
Manga manuscript, A4 size; I prefer Copic and Manga University brand. You can find these online too. "How did you learn to draw like this?"
Lots of trial and error and lots of practice. EDIT:
. Another DD?! I never even dreamed of getting the first one. Thank you =AdigunPolack
for your suggestion and kind words, and ^znow-white
for featuring it! I appreciate it very much!
