How I Do Things - Tutorial by Ashwings How I Do Things - Tutorial by Ashwings
Tutorial for ------> [link]

Re-uploaded this, because dozens of people have asked me to make a tutorial....but fail to notice that I already made one ^^

Do I even have to tell you to FULL VIEW??

For photoshop 7 (but I'm pretty sure it can be used in other programs)

Yay I finally did it, took me a while but it's done! :dance:
For all ya peoples, and future peoples who bugged me! :hug: I'm actually proud of it.
Big file....so be patient....
Didn't wanna use one of my more complicated pics... or else we would all be here forever :D so I used this pic, which gives away mostly all that I do....which isn'r much.

Hopefully people will learn from this *nods* have anymore questions...note me....or something...
Will do another one someday on how I do more of my most reccent pics....

Thank you so much for the tutorial! Been a big fan of zombie hunters for a few years now, never realized you had a DA page ^_^

Question though, what font did you use in the tutorial?

[link] you might be able to see it better in the more recent tutorial I made, I can't really explain it any better than that, if you are still having trouble try Google.com, Google is your friend.

Oooh! This looks alot easier then some of the other tutorials i've seen out there! Hey, how long did it take you to make something like that? And how did you get it to keep your line art on top of your colors? I know it's gotta be a layer thing but did you have to like select the background and make it transparent while keeping the lines and sticking THOSE on a new layer? Or how? I've been trying to figure out that little trick and it's been getting really frustrating. If I can figure out that ONE thing I can actually start coloring alot of my stuff in PS.

Basically, all I do is i make sure the line-art layer is set to 'multiply' and then I create a layer directly underneath that layer and colour on that one that :)

I think I divulge more on that in this tut [link]

This is by far the best coloring tutorial I have seen :3

I sadly enough (like most people out there) cannot afford a $300 tablet at this point in time and thus learned how to color on Photoshop with my mouse. -_-; Annoying as hell, buuut it works *shrugs*

lol funny running into you here, I haven't seen your work since... damn, around 2005 ^^; You really have come far ;p

And yes... music IS essential for coloring. 4+ hours of silence is enough to drive anyone mad.

What file format are you saving it as? It needs to be a jpeg *nodnods*
Go to file---->save as or save for web and then tinker with the settings to get it to the quality you like ^^

Hope that helps!

this is the best tutorial i read ever....it really helped a lot becouse i don't have a graphic tablet and i keep trying to create great details with the mouse...i'm working on something now, i i will probably post it in a couple of weeks...everything i done untill now..it was kinda "small"...i'm changing my style...i was working only on photos but i kinda got bored so...i started drawing. I can't draw..that's why it will take me a few weeks more that i expected...it will turn out great...i hope!!!....great tut...love your explaining style...

You can either click on the image itself, or you can click on the magnifier glass thinger that says 'full view' on the left *nods*

lol, i meant when posting a deviation, how do ppl put on the "pleasefull-view" picture and then when you click it, it could be a different picture, or the same picture enlarged

FAQ #79: How do I submit Artwork?

I think you mean a preview image *nods* I am not really sure how to explain it, but check the FAQ, I think they explain it better somewhere around in there xD
