Stars Tutorial

Journal Entry: Tue May 15, 2012, 4:30 AM
Yup yup, new tutorial from me. Link to it on my website:




I'll eventually make DA-compatible version of it, but that will have to wait. I can't exactly use the same kind of layout format as with my previous tutorials, as this one has waaaay too varying kinds of images to fit into a mold like that and still look good. And holy moly, that's a lot of text! Took me several hours to write! But at least I've explained things by depth, hrrmh. o_o

Indeed, I drew that image over a month ago, and I've had the all the necessary pieces of the tutorial lying around, ready to be tutorialized, ever since. But with everything else going on it had to wait. But now the tutorial is done and I'm going to have some icecream! And then it's time to draw yet another comic page...


~


Which leads me to this: Eeee! I can't believe the cover page for the prologue chapter got a DD! I'm so happy! I've been smiling so bad that my whole face hurts. When I logged in to post this journal and saw my message box all filled up with stuff I was like "Huh? I didn't submit anything yesterday? Damnit, stupid message centre malfunctioning again!" and then I was like: that one picture of the while gorilla going "LOL!". Except in a dumb, giggly way. xB

*skips off into icecream land*

I love the tutorial, and the technique with the image of the acrylic painting is truly interesting and unique. It's a brilliant idea! 
i laughed a lot too. A sense of humor and incredible talent... Wow you are lucky! :)

By the way, you made me curious, so I found out what the difference between fill and opacity is. [link] Basically, opacity affects everything, including your layer effects, while fill leaves your layer effects (outer glow, for example :D) alone, and just affects the transparency of the object itself.
love your starfield btw :)

Juu, kivahan näitä on välillä kyhätä, tulee omaakin tekemistapaansa samalla mietittyä himan tarkemmin. Joskus sattuu että yht'äkkiä tajuan jotain tyyliin "mitä hemmettiä minä näin teen, kun noinkin voi tehdä, örrr?" :3

Sun töissä näkyy kyllä selvästi miten kehityt paremmaksi koko ajan, ja on hirveän kiva että jaat tietoasi muillekin. ^^

Wonderful tutorial! Makes me really want to try making my own star-scape sometime, I like the painterly glow step, it really does look significantly different.

Haha, that's quite a feat! I was reading through it looking for leftover typos and by the end my only thought was: "dayum, no-one's going to have the energy to read all that!" x3

Oh. And can I suggest a grass tutorial. Your backgrounds are very inspiring and the grass and ground just adds so much. For some reason I just don't get any decent technique no matter how many studies I try.

Oh, that's a good idea! I was thinking of doing some kind of foliage tutorial some day, but grass and other random ground-vegetation is way more interesting.

Did I mention before I love your tutorials? Your style appeals to me a lot. I have no idea why I didn't tell you this before, and I watch you ages.
btw, when will be another page? :lol:
