Shading tutorial by Grypwolf Shading tutorial by Grypwolf
ARRRGH! O_o

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)

edit:
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:

Given 2011-07-05
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 Ailisea and Featured by FantasyStock )

What type of sai do you use? I have SAI but it doesn't look like that and It won't let me change the size of the brush so I just have to go with what it gives me. do you have any advice that might help me use the program better? thank you for your time

There's Paint.net, GIMP, and Firealpaca, among thousands of other free programs that do similar things to Photoshop :)

If you have a scanner, you can use MS Paint (silly I know) so do something similar in terms of shading.  That's how I got my start before I got a tablet.  Even if you do have a tablet, the steps are similar, expect you can't use layers, you just gotta be careful.

Or, if possible, ask for permission to download a program, there are dozens of free (and virus-free) ones out there that are trustworthy.

OH.MY.GOD You have no Idea how much this helps me, i LOVE Chellshading *big Manga Nerd * And i was trying to get the hang on it for so long but never could quite understand how to place the layers, opacity etc. 
Your Tutorial is gold i tried it and on the first try the Shading looked decent I am a dummy! :happybounce:   

Used it for this

FAIL.

I don't say this because I want you to. But believe me. I did not get it first, second or even third time.
To get this kind of shading and improve on making it took me 2 years and more. Don't be afraid to fail. when you start being afraid of failure, you start being afraid of doing anything. and they you will not get anywhere.

You can tell master from apprentice of how many times they have failed and still keep going. So just do it. practice. I believe in you.

Where can I buy it? I gotta ask my dad though. If it's a monthly payment, then I won't be able to get it ; A ;

One time payment and you own it for life. 

Like I said tho. it is good to learn how to use search engines in internet and google is the best.
write Systemax paint tool SAI and you will get the right place.

You can still get Paint Tool Sai... I have paid for it in dollars too. The system automatically transfers the money. 5000 yen is about $55, and you'll need a paypal account. But you should be okay after that! KEEP THE SERIAL NUMBER AND CODE WHEN YOU GET IT. Jesus... I made the mistake of not having it and when I switched computers, I had to RE-BUY it. Point is, you can get it. Make sure the link you go to says SYSTEMAX or it won't be the proper one. Hope this helps!

You can get it free, just browse DeviantArt journals for a proper link. However if you're looking to buy, I find Clip Studio paint (was 40$ when I bought it) to excel over sai. It's easy to use and has more to it.

awww- You know honey, it isn't easy, and it was as hard for me first ---- but when you get your mind wrapped around this thing and start to realize what and when, then it is easier.

My old works looked like this when I had almost no idea what I was doing:
i69.photobucket.com/albums/i45… and I was at your age when I did that
and this: i69.photobucket.com/albums/i45…
