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 TsunadeShirahime and Featured by FantasyStock )

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!

one question tho: where did I say this is supposed to be realistic? :'DDDD 
because it is not and I did not say so. someone just thought it was "realistic".

Mielestäni tekniikkasi & tutoriaalisi on selkeä ja piirtovideosi, etenkin Sailla piirretyt ovat tulleet tutuiksi. Niistä pääsee hyvin kärryille vaikka ongelmaksi muotoutuu layereiden järjestykset, oppacityn tms. säätö. Soveltaminen.

Kiitos tästä kommentista.

En yleensä tutoriaaleihin ja videoihin korosta näitä sillä kaiken kaikkiaan kuitenkin arvostan sitä että ihmiset menevät ja kokeilevat itse ja säätävät oman mielihalunsa mukaan.
Saahan noita tutoriaali ideoita nakella kuitenkin. vois piakoin vaikka jonkin näköisen kyselyn pystyyn pistää siittä että mitä seuraavaksi.

Question:

Are you using photoshop for this tutorial, and does it come with those brushes? Because I have a rather outdated version of photoshop and the only thing holding me back is the brushes I have.
