I got a question about the way I add textures to my drawings, so I went a bit overboard and made a quick tutorial!
Almost all of the textures I use are from here. Textures are honestly not that hard to find—Google will easily lead you to plenty of sites where those resources are available for free.
Also keep in mind that this method is mostly just for sprucing up sketches, not for taking a full illustration to finish. I definitely would not recommend relying on a formulaic method like this for coloring everything you draw. It’s just an easy way to make a doodle look more presentable!
I use Photoshop CS5, but I don’t use any super fancy tools in this tutorial, so I’m pretty sure you can still use this process or something very similar to it in older/simpler versions of Photoshop or even entirely different programs like SAI (I haven’t explored SAI much yet, though, so don’t quote me on that).
One last thing: the key to learning Photoshop (or almost any other program) is basically to press all the buttons to see what they do. Look through all the menu options, click all the weird little symbols, just explore and experiment! I’m entirely self-taught in Photoshop, and that’s how I did it. It’s a lot of fun! Good luck and happy arting!
Ok I was recently reminded that this exists (i-I think someone DA-famous linked it or something because WHAT) and I think this may be relevant to tumblr’s interests so here’s my~female body variation tutorial~ whoo~
This came from some things I scribbled down when I was trying to keep my character designs consistent, and I realised that it kinda made me see bodies/proportions somewhat differently so I pasted it into this smarmy old tutorial, now cut up into (I hope) tumblr-friendly chunks so right-click for full size I think? (disclaimer: I don’t know anything and it is so far past my bedtime that it’s been tomorrow for a whole day so I’m going to nap and then maybe regret posting this.)
