Talon's Complete Tutorial (except for backgrounds) by TalonEX Talon's Complete Tutorial (except for backgrounds) by TalonEX
EDIT! Sorry the actual tutorial is messy, my handwriting is ugly ;~; I plan to re-do this and make it better! /endedit

Please not this is not a tutorial on anatomy - I just quickly made this art piece just for the tutorial. Ask me for any questions to may have and Enjoy!

Talon's Facts I'm giving some here and adding to it even though they are in the tutorial. Just for you!
:bulletblack: I use the airbrush tool for sketch, lines, shading, and lighting. Why? Because its sharp without making it edgy, like pixels, when you downsize it.
:bulletblack: I use a tiny bit of lighting. The majority is shading.
:bulletblack: The Layer Mode really makes a difference! Try making a colored sketch with a simple colored background. Try playing with the mode (shade, normal, multiply, screen, overlay) and see the different results.
:bulletblack: I am bad at art, but you guys wanted me to make a tutorial. I did because I lab you all! ♥

PLEASE feel free to link my tutorial wherever you want. IF you do use it, link me your picture, I'd love to see it!
I'd love to see what you did.

FINISHED PIECE


Art and Character are mine
All art is by me and the model is my own character. Please don't steal ♥

You have a lovely style, and while my shading style is different, I've learned much from this tutorial! Do you still use Paint Tool Sai, seeing as this tutorial is a bit old? I plan on getting it with some Christmas cash. :3

Sorry, I couldn't quite catch the first tip.

What size canvas do you use?

Now, all I need is Sai, the ability to line, the ability to draw, & the ability to comprehend lighting & shading, remembering to make layers, patience, 50 years, and I'll draw just like this :'D.
