And tutorial is finally finished. I firstly started to do this tutorial on November 2010, but then my hard disc crashed and I didn't do it... I'm a little glad that hard disc crashed, cuz this tutorial looks billion times better than old one. I'm glad because I decided to learn to program in Flash a little more so I did what I really wanted. The new tutorial I started to do at the end of June 2011 and I did it for 4 months. It was hard to program everything (especially to write the text, cuz I'm not a good writer), but I really wanted to finish it. In original tutorial I made even custom mouse cursor, but here on dA I deleted it, because I didn't want that your mouse works weird outside tutorial area :D In this tutorial you can find 14 different tutorials. In menu you'll find 3 different categories, like People, Background and Photoshop and there you can choose what you want to learn. This tutorial can be even useful for people who don't use Photoshop that much or they learn to use it. Happy learning (P.S. all drawings in this tutorial you can find in our gallery) :heart:

+How to use tutorial+

You probably already saw little buttons at the bottom of this tutorial. Simply just click on them with your mouse or cursor. You can move the pages with your keyboard buttons. Turn to the next page by clicking on the Right button and for the previous page click the Left button on your keyboard. If you want to return to the Menu just click the button that looks like home (it'll appear on the following pages). In this tutorial you can move things too. Movable things have pink symbol. Move them with your mouse cursor.

If you can't see the text in the tutorial very well, then you can click download button on this page and text will be bigger. But if you want to download this tutorial completely (because .swf file you can't save) you can click on thumb below.

Before I forgot to add a command CTRL+V in Photoshop menu (Making lineart from scanned picture), so now I fixed that and you can download correct version. I even added download button on tutorial, so you can click on it, and you'll be redirected to tutorial which is available for download (then just click in top right corner Download button).

First, thanks for the tutorial. It really made a lot of things clear. In one of your pieces showed in this tutorial, you used Paint Tool Sai. Can you share your brush settings, if possible?
tincek-marincek Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Student General Artist's my pleasure :love: Oh, I probably don't remember anymore ^^; I didn't use SAI that much (I probably opened it 2-3 times xD)...but I believe I used default settings...:D

i think the correct term for 3d effect is " chromatic aberration " omg WOW
tincek-marincek Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2014  Student General Artist
Oh...really :D I never knew that correctly since everywhere writes "channels" while there's something to do with that...haha :giggle: So I wrote 3D effect, cuz it's more friendly term :dummy: And thanks :hug:

Hello, for background concept, I still don't really understand @.@
Mhm.. Is it, let say the painting's light source is yellow. So my character's highlight should be yellow (even though the hair's pink and clothings is green)? How about shadows? Should it be purple?
Thanks in advance!
