Cel shading 03 : Faces by Nashya Cel shading 03 : Faces by Nashya
Wow! I'm really glad my little 'walk-thrus' were helpful! I don't really call them tutorials because they're sort of vague aaand I'm not the best teacher either so it's like, "Try it yourself". A lot of this rests on technique and on how much you play around with it. You can do really basic shading or super detailed shading! This was for made for 14 year olds, so it's got very basic shading. I'd give a lecture and demonstration right before showing these, so previous Photoshop know-how will help.

Um... this method is pretty much the way I do bust commissions. Please, feel free to still buy them from me even though you know the tricks I use in creating them XD LOL!

So yeah! Again, these aren't the end all be all steps to cel shading, it's just how I work. Again, sorry for the typos. I literally had to make it the day before the class XD;.

Hi! Just wanted to thank you for making this! I finally got a tablet and tried out this process, and it's very interesting and useful! It's like shading backwards when I cut out/erase the areas that are supposed to be lit. Curiously enough, I think it helps me to not miss areas that are supposed to be shaded! Thanks! :)

:iconlawooplz: This helps a TON! I rarely use photoshop for anything art-related, due to the fact that I don't have a tablet, so I might just try and modify this technique to work with SAI.

man, Just watching this three tutorials... I really miss coloring in the cell-shaded way like I used to do when I was learning how to work with Photoshop.
It's been a long time I haven't worked like that.

Hahaha I don't think your tutorials are to vague :). You explain way better then majority of my college teachers and you even give steps on how you did it XD. I gotta try your tutorial and see if I can finally shade hair better cause hair is evil.

Your cel shading walk-thrus are actually pretty helpful, even for someone like me who should probably know most of this stuff by now! :XD: Some of these techniques I do know already, but you do them slightly different from the way I'm used to, and it makes me think that maybe I should play around with different approaches and see what happens. It's good to try new things, especially in art.

Your bust commissions are still awesome, no worries. I have the three you did for me in a place of honor. :heart:

Good stuff, lady!
