Shading tutorial by Grypwolf Shading tutorial by Grypwolf

never again!

I hate working with tutorials althought I LOVE helping people, so NO I don't have any problems at all xD
Its story about "how Grypwolf does shading". enjoy..... if you can. ( and sorry about traumatic english I used there xD)

and I almost forgot! This shading style works in photoshops of all kind and with Paint Tool Sai. Don't know about paintshop pro or Paint thought....

I worked with this tutorial while drawing this picture:

Suggester's words: There are lots of tutorials on how to color, sketch or realize a drawing but among the few that show how to shade depending from the different light sources, Shading tutorial by *Grypwolf is really the best. It has a clear and simple language that anyone can understand, even those who are not too familiar with the terms of graphic software! ( Suggested by TsunadeShirahime and Featured by FantasyStock )

My old works looked like this when I had almost no idea what I was doing:… and I was at your age when I did that
and this:…
