Great tutorial! I cant seem to find that brush you are using for shading in CS5 though :)

this is so super duper useful. even though the result isn't as amazing as yours, but the tips you suggested are really helpful and really work! thank you so much meago :heart:

I make a pic just like you. The pencil sketch to begin with is easier than the computer, especially if you have not so much exercise. Although it is einbisschen complicated, but the result is much more important than the way. And when I draw with crayons, my way is much more complicated. nice tutorial:happybounce:

What version of Photoshop do you use for this? :S
MegaAnimeFreak7 Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Can you also do this with SAI?
AlpacazMakeArt Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I imagine you could do most of it with sai.
Maybe not the first couple of steps...

But I mean, you'd just have to play around wit the tools and practice. >.<
I have SAI too. ._.
Photoshop is too expensive for this poor person .XD

For me it's much easier to do the lineart in the traditional way. Now I know how to add them in photoshop, instead of doing the lineart digital.
I love you :iconluvluvplz:
Moossey Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Does digital lineart take more time to create than traditional? :0

por qué? no encuentro el dibujo :'(
olivia8383 Featured By Owner May 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I has a question. How do you make the lineart after you scan the picture? Like how when you take the scan and then all the negative space goes away leaving just the lines.

Thanks for taking the time to make this! I've been looking for some ways to improve my shading, and this certainly helps! :)

Ohayo mam pytanie, czyTyzawsze najpierw tworzysz na kartce potem skanujesz i malujesz w PS? Bo zakupiłam tablet i próbuje bazgrac ale troche mi nie idzie, albo nie rozumiem funkcjonizmu tabletu.
meago Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2012  Professional Digital Artist

Though I know this tutorial is old, I will say it's neat to see how you've done pieces. It's more or less the way I've been doing traditional to digital color images :nod:

Wonderful! Thank you for sharing your techniques. :thumbsup: :)
MiharaChan Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Oh my gooosh!! :wow:

I've been looking for a tutorial like this for my traditional art! It's done so much more quickly than doing the whole lineart on Paint Tool Sai and then doing the lineart of the shading, then filling it with the basic colors and shading colors, etc... :love:

So, this means that you don't really need to do the lineart? Just do some adjustments, color and do the shading, right? :D
