If you dont mind me asking, what program do you use to draw? And any chance we could see a step by step process of your work?? I really love the way you color (and draw of course). It's so bold and eye catching and i just really love it ><

Hello! I don’t mind at all! I use Paintool SAI and sometimes Photoshop CS2, though less so because my computer can barely handle it lmao. But normally I do use Paintool SAI!

Also I’ve been asked this a few times and finally got around to it! My process is fairly simple for both painting and coloring in lineart. I already have a basic gist of it process for my lineart (THOUGH I SWEAR ITS REFINED A BIT I HOPE, but its generally the same…) so I did one for painting instead!

And that’s about it! Sorry it was probably pretty antclimactic, I don’t really know what else to say other than that I typically build from dark to light when I paint, and for the most part when I do actual lineart the coloring process more or less stays the same, but the outlines are thinner and I tend to draw the people far more simple in contrast to a more detailed background.

When I fully paint I usually balance out complexity though!

Thank you for asking and I hope this is sufficient! ;c; I really appreciate your support for my art!

Tuesday Tips — Painting a shiny object

the steps are:

1.  matte base object

2.  add ceiling reflection 

3.  highlight

yes, it is that simple.  Throughout the years, I learn to edit.  It’s unnecessary to paint or render every single grain of hair and detail.  It’s about communicating the idea across.  A lot of it is about believability.  I find this technique works for me.  And as always, it is a good idea to practice it on a simple basic primitives.  (I know, I know, it’s not the most exciting thing).  But you will be surprise on how fast you can paint when you master your basic shapes. 

Attached are gif I made to show you my steps on a sphere, and one of my shoe illustration I painted using the same technique.

If you’re going to read manga please do not use MangaFox, MangaHere, or any other similar sites - the manga hosting sites with all the ads. I thought this was pretty well-known (it’s pretty well-known among scanlation groups I’ve found) but apparently it’s not so here’s…
