    What Makes A Hero - Matthew Winkler

    The classic formula of a hero found in books and movies of the past and today. Great for writers to watch and see if their stories follow this, intentional or not. How many stories have you read that follows this? What makes and breaks your hero? What trials do they endure?

    Ok I was recently reminded that this exists (i-I think someone DA-famous linked it or something because WHAT) and I think this may be relevant to tumblr’s interests so here’s my~female body variation tutorial~ whoo~

    This came from some things I scribbled down when I was trying to keep my character designs consistent, and I realised that it kinda made me see bodies/proportions somewhat differently so I pasted it into this smarmy old tutorial, now cut up into (I hope) tumblr-friendly chunks so right-click for full size I think? (disclaimer: I don’t know anything and it is so far past my bedtime that it’s been tomorrow for a whole day so I’m going to nap and then maybe regret posting this.)

    Character Flaws

    Tutorial: from paper to digital.

    kaiami:

    Hey ya’ll! I’m not much of a tutorial person, but this was a technique that I learned from Syuzuki, one of my favorite artists back in the day, when I was 13. I memorized the technique and it’s been one of the most useful things I can do on photoshop. This was something that really helped me, and I hope that it will be useful for even some of you.

    In this tutorial, I will be going step by step how I take something from my sketchbook and color it on photoshop.

Some people asked for tutorials, so here it is this… kind of strange “tutorial”
This must be done with LOVE, and time, and a lot of patience! (I did this really quickly) And with a less-messy lineart too, the result would be nicer, of course. Butttt this is basically how I color. 
Sorry for my horrible writing, it changes everytime. And sorry if there’s spelling mistakes, I’m still learning english!
Hope this serves :)

    Oh no it’s a COLOURING WALKTHROUGH

    The last time I did one of these I felt it was inadequate because all I did was flip through the layers of a completed piece. So this time I took screenshots as I drew! 

    Other notes:

    • This is only my method for fast colouring; if I had, say, metallic objects, or fur to colour I would likely paint it with none of the shadows layer masking business, which seems to work best on objects that aren’t particularly shiny.
    • If you look at the timestamps, apparently I took about an hour an a half to colour this.
    • Smoothing out the shadows was done with a hard round brush with flow and opacity controls turned on. (it’s a default brush.)

    Finished product can be found here. I hope this is helpful!
