oh gosh that pixel art is really cute
and the dappled sort of texture you used in the dogthing drawing is really nice, ahhhh
/cough


Nice tutorial! It's very concise, but it gets across so many important points. I wish I'd seen this years ago when you first posted it, haha. Would've helped me tons and saved me a lot of time.

The only bad thing I can really say about this is that your spelling/grammar mistakes are really bugging me. xD

Great tutorial! xD But on the example you removed more than just the apples! (the scarf and the colors on the ears and feet. >w<)
Lol, I love this and will keep this in mind when coloring!

this is really handy for me, i love your style of art. I see where i go wrong with my shading, i usually just use black on an overlay layer. *lazy artist is lazy* I'll have to try this style of colouring.

This was really awesome thank you! This might be a dumb question, but what if your light source is purple? can you shade in yellow or orange?
Reply
:icongriffsnuff:
griffsnuff Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2011
Yes that is possible :3 just make it a darker tone than the light and it should work just fine.
