The second you think you can't do something is when you really can't.

Now if you don't think you NEED to simplify things in design, because the visual center of your brain can calculate all of the lines and perfectly translate them to your hand, then no sweat.

But that plateau Spike speaks about is real. I've been there, man. It was hell.

It was on the Mekong delta... back in 2002...


There was a stench in the air all the time. Charlie liked to fart on us and run away. The bastard thought he was funny. I was sitting in the PT boat, waiting for a repositioning order from my superior officer. And in this treasured bit of spare time, I was practicing drawing. Figured I should, and if Charlie came back, I could plug his foul bottom up with my pencil.

Just then it came wafting by... That horrible smell, like a thousand different half-digested foods. That fucker didn't even have to show his face, cuz he was sitting upwind on the riverside, probably behind some bushes.

The smell was so bad that I passed out...

When I woke up, I realised that I was being an ass for not using the shape drawing method. So I started... took me about a year to get used to, but then it was okay, because the simplified method of construction allowed me a working model to imagine the anatomy for, without the details cluttering up my mind and warping my perceptions. And I progressed more that year than I had in the past three years combined.

The very handy make-your-own-sketchbook thread

Posted here more for my reference than anything, but it's a very cool idea. I'm going to have to figure out where I can find a paper warehouse, tho.

I've got some tutorials I am loving.

First, for anyone that hasn't read Copper, do so now. I don't know why but it makes me happy.

The artist, Kazu Kibuishi, has an awesome style and the colours are simply brilliant. He has created a tutorial of how me does Copper and it rocks.

Second, a brilliant Clouds tutorial.

Yesterday I pick up a copy of Paintshop pro X because I heard it was good for doing art. (Plus I needed to find a cheaper alternative to Photoshop till I can afford it.) It's great so far but it's taking me a while to learn how to get stuff done in it.

If anyone comes across any good tutorials for Paintshop Pro X (10) can you let me know? It'll be very appreciated. THANKS.

These are tutorials for flat colors in Photoshop. I haven't had the chance to try them myself yet, but it looks like a really cool technique.

The second one is sort of an expanded version of the first one.

you could always give GIMP a go apparently it's a lot like Photoshop AND free.. not used as I have PhotoShop.

ABE-

Just checked it out and it can do layers and can use 'multiply' like photoshop so you can use it for easy cell colouring.....

I highly recommend GIMP. It's not as powerful as PSP or PS (Though the PSP bit can be argued :D) but for it's price it's the best in it category. I also recommend Paint.net.

More video tutorials/guides, this time from O of Commissioned. O's art in the comic is fairly simplistic but the videos go over his other art. These other pieces happen to be crazy detailed. Seriously, this guy has awesome skills, though he holds his pencil all weird like.

He covers many things such as shading, highlights, expression and equipment. Awesome stuff.

Steel Cape
Divert Blow
Samurai Dragon
Inlaid Weapon
Astral Centurion
Mark Of The Infidel
Guardian Familiar
Epic Shadow Knight
Steel Satellites

EDIT: This list will be edited as he releases more.
