Solitary Heart by tiffa Solitary Heart by tiffa
Okee dokee finished now! Sorry about that. Did the final touches with OC/Photoshop combo. Didn't realize I went back and forth between the two programs that much...

This lineart is used in my "Cel-Style coloring in Photoshop for Beginners" tutorial which can be found here [link]

The 5th segment is obviously where I'm at now. Writing a tutorial while trying to color a picture takes soooo long ~____~... sorry for the budget layout. Not feeling terribly creative at the moment.

There is so much that I like about this picture when it comes to "staging" (or what to call it) I don't even know where to begin. So I'll just fav and run away XD

Her blade reminds me of Creed's Imaginary Blade Lv2, from Black Cat

Sweet picture! Very cool, very badass, very sexy. This is the sort of imagery that drew me into cel-style artwork in the first place. Unlike a lot of the characters in tutorial books I've bought, this looks like a character I'd be interesting in watching a whole series for.

Haven't read over the Photoshop tutorial, because without Photoshop it does me no good. But I might want it at some point in the future, so it's getting bookmarked. ;)

lol thanks very much~ Well, if you ever get your hands on photoshop, I hope the tutorial can be useful to you. I'm sure the concepts can be applied in any digital painting program.

I like the background to this. The pose is really dynamic and the sword reminds me of something from Final Fantasy. Top Stuff Tiffa!

it's a sword made out of LIGHT ^__- j/k i have no clue what it is. Makes me wonder how those FF7 cosplayers can lug around those prop swords around cons.

I know what you mean, when I went to my first anime convention I lugged around a keyblade I made myself, and it got in the way a lot

The pose is really great, especially the shape of her arms, which is very well done. Lovely cell shading too. And that sword--it's just fun. xD

this is amazing but i feel like you need to to add tiny black lines around the blade just so that it has the same feel as the girl
