    Hehe, Nasty is fine, I'm pretty used to being called it.
    And thanks a bunch!


    Oh, and since I've gotten a few questions or comments regarding how I do things, here's a poor man's tutorial that I threw together for you guys. Hope you find it helpful/informing.

    Tutorial

    Step 1: Base Sketch
    I always start out with a very basic sketch. These don't involve much (open)
    [​IMG]

    Step 2: Sketch
    Now we start with the real sketching. First I make a new layer (open)
    [​IMG]

    Step 3: Lineart
    Alright (open)
    [​IMG]

    More lineart process... (open)
    [​IMG]

    Final lineart is done (open)
    [​IMG]

    Lastly (open)
    [​IMG]

    Step 4: Base Colors
    There will be lots and lots of layers involved from here on out. Coloring all on one layer can really trip you up later (open)
    [​IMG]

    Step 5: Shadows and highlights
    Shadows should be on a new layer (open)
    [​IMG]

    This was actually a mistake that ended up looking pretty good. I was making an alternate version of Crimgan in its regular color (open)
    [​IMG]

    Step 6: Final touches
    This is the texture step. It's 100% optional (open)
    [​IMG]

    ...and a custom texture I made myself (you can see it in nearly all of my similar pokemon pictures) which looks kind of like the tread of a tire. (open)
    [​IMG]

    Now (open)
    [​IMG]

    ...but DO do something like this. In the end (open)
    [​IMG]



    Phew! Hope it helped/shed a little light on how I do things!

    Nice tutorial. I don't have photoshop, so I found it interesting.

    The Crimgan is great! I don't like its normal colors that much, but the shiny colors are better; they make it seem Grass/Dragon, which I like very much. Leaf wings and orange thorns. And then there's Bachuru, of course ^_^

    This would have been so useful when I still had a working tablet/iScribble (even though that only has 3 layers :B).

    Also, heck yeah, Rhapsody.

    Has my request been lost in the mail? I was about to say again, but last time you were working on it so... :D

    There's no particular rush, I was just curious.

    The way you incorporate texture is very interesting, and now I know how you get your lines so smooth! Thanks for posting that tutorial :)

    Yes it has definitely been lost, I don't recall a request put in by you.

    Go ahead and repost and I'll get on it.

    NastyJungle, I love your art. You should definitely opt for professionally illustrating at some point.

    Edit: Oh and also, I will mostly be working to finish all of my smog art before I finish any more requests. Thanks for the patience.
