cell shading tutorial by XReichiX cell shading tutorial by XReichiX
.........my not-quite-cell shading tutorial!

uhm it's more like a WIP really @_@

I'm sorry I couldn't give you more detail, then it would have rather become a "how to work with Photoshop/Sai" tut instead? orz

ah I hope it was helpful to someone at least @_@

finished pic [link]

let me know if you have tried it out ♥

Edit: i'm sorry, I forgot to include I changed halfway to Photoshop haha XD but you can do everything just in photoshop, or any programme that has the same functions~

XReichiX Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yes. you can also try out grey-red or other colors as long as they're greyish and find out what you like best :'D

You're welcome ;D
