its time to give back to the community, i hope this qualifies as a tutorial.
i would like to credit nebezial for his wonderful help through out the whole process.
please note all of nebs tricks of the trade can be found in his TUTORIAL thread.
and to Arcana Studios for the pencil,
also for linda bergkvist for the her lovely brush.
this is the pencil i got from sean oreilly/arcana.
1: blocking out the colors i needed, originally i thought kade was green, found out he isnt :P, did the abs, some tatoo coloring, some shading.
2: used neb’s hair trick to do the hair, was kind of a crappy job at this point.
3: found out that the abs are also not looking so good, after a while i found out the right look, basically a big hard brush and i smeared the colors.
4: the hilt! i discovered how to do metal, yea that was the first time i did anything metal like. used gold yellow, ivory, some dodge and burn and voila.
5: made him blue, ditched the hair colors.
6: muscle definition, looks too pumped up… had to revise in the next stage. fixed the tatoos.
7: toned the muscles a bit.
