As promised to a few people, here is [half] of my tutorial for basic Anime/Cartoon shading.....known as Cel Shading (like animation "cels").

I thought it would be nice to do something a little different this time. If I recall correctly, this was the very first technique/style I learnt when I took an interest in Digital Art back in 2004 :) It is quite a simple beginner style to adopt and a great way to just get the hang of your Digital Art program!

So I am very happy to share what I have picked up over the years!

Now this is a VERY basic walkthrough. I used Adobe Photoshop, but these techniques should be applicable to other art programs such as Paint Tool SAI, Coral Draw, GIMP etc.

All I am basically using is the Paint Brush, and the Lasso/Free Select tool, so you can find them in whatever program you choose to use! This is solely about the technique rather than my fancy-ass PSCS5 features :giggle:

Anyway, I hope this is informative!

Tools: Photoshop + Mouse
Time:: 30 minutes.

I have a question about this video. At around the 7:30-8 minute mark, you take a sample with the dropper and use it to bleed the shaded areas into your colored areas, giving the shading more value. How did you do this?

Ah, I used the soft edged Airbrush on a really low opacity there and just added a really slight gradient effect :)
