Well, there is one for Manga.
Thanks for the tutorial, Loston, this is great stuff.
Sweet tutorial, thank you, Loston!
It was a lot of fun spending the time to do this, I don't usually spend much time on backgrounds; all the while keeping the principles you stated in mind.
It's pretty obvious that I very quickly overdid the shading, even though you warn against that in your tutorial. Because of that, the light source in this one is not clear at all.
Any other tips as to what to improve would be greatly appreciated.
And here are the outlines in case anyone feels like doing the shading on top.
I just want to once again thank you for your tips or tutorials or however you'd like to catergorize them. I just hope that if I can reach some degree of competence I can pay it forward to some other artist as well.
I'm glad that these tuts are helping some of you to figure things out. I'm really enjoying seeing how you guys are utilizing the info too! The light source isn't exactly clear, chia, but You do have the principles down, so that's good. Just make sure you keep the lighting consistent, and you've got it, Man.
Just wanted to be another person to say 'thanks.' These tutorials are a big help. I especially loved that you related inking detail to depth of field; I'm not sure I ever would have considered that!
I still can't draw rocks as well as I would like to from my mind. I think it is something you just have to do a lot before it finally sinks in.
