Do any of you have any favorite cel shading tutorials, techniques, advice and critiques for me? Please see my recent half-assed attempt to tell me what I can do better. Admittedly, towards the end it was so late at night I got sloppy, but I might want to revisit this and try again:
Here's what I did with this one, just to give a little insight:
I haven't found a good way to ink digitally as I primarily use Photoshop and I haven't been able to get the crisp lines in photoshop that I like to see on digitally inked things (if anyone has any tips for this I'd love to hear them), so I drew it in pencil and just tried to "ink" with the pencil as best I could, then put the "lines" layer on multiply and colored the flats under it.
For the shading I used a saturated magenta which I had on a new layer set to a low opacity. I /attempted/ a little bit of gradient work on the overall flat color but that didn't work out as I had planned.
Really any advice or tips would be great! I want to give this another shot.
