Thank you. I've been trying to figure out how to CG color in Photoshop for the longest time but nothing was really working, often due to using procedures I don't understand in the least--but I already know how to do all of that, and just never thought to put it all together like so :3
Might wanna work on your poses a bit though. Cyke really seems to have sprained his ankle badly there, and his left arm bends in impossible ways... >_>

Most people I know replace the burn and dodge with soft edged brushing, but I think you can get a better effect this way.
I agree about the arm, it looks like it's sticking out in front of him. :P

I love you.
I've never tried to do art like that before because I didn't know how. (Then again, I suck at lineart, so I probably still shouldn't try. :P)

If you never try, you never get better. =P

Since I hate drawing realistic people anyway, I tried adopting that shading style to a chibi.
And yes, I know the face is insanely creepy. It's just a placeholder. >_>

I shade hair a lot differently. I'll have to a tut' on that.
Anyway, the body is mostly good, but you have to use the dodge tool on lower exposure, like 15. Blend it in slowly with smaller brushes.
Sorry about the crappy quality.

I did do it on about 15. Maybe I had too heavy of a gradient...

Alright, here's my hair tutorial:

ooh looks nice. im beginning to think gradients arent bad all the time...?
Dazuro - February 10, 2007 08:23 PM (GMT)
Since my last problem was largely the lineart, I thought I'd try CGing one of RP's sketches.http://lod.pixelatedempire.net/rolsdeath.jpg
Here's what I've got so far...

You have to know how to use them, really.
Daz - Pretty awesome so far. :D

Tileset tutorial for your convenience! This will ensure the most versatile tileset possible (whether you are making a square or other shaped tileset).
I originally made this to help with my hex tileset, but it works well with all shapes that tessellate regularly without a rotation. Note this is why the triangle in the tutorial needs to have a flip side to fill in all gaps.

Um...This is great :D ...except I don't got photoshop :( ...I got G.I.M.P. Will it work for that? If not can I get a tutorial plz?
Zurginator - May 18, 2008 07:57 PM (GMT)
Well... since it's pinned, I guess It's ok to bump....
Anyways, I'm gonna need alot of help, as you will see by my by my first question:
How do I draw a strait line? :oops: (without just having perfect mouse movement)
And how do I make transparencies?
This refers to Photoshop CS2, by the way. Thanks :D

If you don't have the line tool icon among your tools, press Shift+U a few times until it appears.
Transparency can be done in a lot of ways, most commonly by editing the opacity in the layers window.
