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 )

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.

^3^

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…

:') chin up!
