Yellow stripes - step by step by Yokufo Yellow stripes - step by step by Yokufo
From a sketch - to the coloured version!
It's not a real tutorial.. More a way of showing you guys how I tend to work; where I start and what I pay close attention to!
I am on the tutorials though and will try to make some with explanations, when I get time to ^^
Don't wish to give you some half-finished; soulless things ;P

May I ask how you did the layering between the face and hair?

This is really lovely! Do you use the smudge tool to blend? or do you color-pick blend? I'm new to digital coloring, and am always wondering what works best.
I can only hope to color this well someday!

Thank you! <3
I use the Blur tool in SAI ^^ But I color with the Brush tool most of the time and it allows me to color-pick some colors as well ^^ I am very sure, the more you practice, the better results you'll get! <3

This is incredible, to see the developement of your work as you go through is just plain ol' amazing.
You're too talented for your own good, are you going to pursue art-making in the future? Like, in terms of a profession?

I wished to 'show' you process this way ^^ I will try to make a real tutorial concerning that as well! *smiles* When.. I get time to xD *laughs*

Oh but yes ^^ I am currently studying Illustration, however we don't do much digital in school.. In fact the best about the university I study at, is being able to chose your own classes :') So basically I take every opportunity to get into a digital classes of any sort xD Next term (starting in March) I wish to pursue Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw and Adobe After Effects as programs :D *grins* But all in one I wish to go into Game Design, for online games ;D

Don't rush yourself, only do it when you have the time :3 that way you can put as much into it as you can/want ^_^

Oh wow, that sounds amazing!! :DD I'll be sure to buy such games ;D I wonder if Lai will become an easter egg... xDD ANYWAY! I wish you all the best! <33

Indeed; I am keeping that in mind as well ^^ There are just ways too many splendid ideas coming into my head as of lately xD I have no opportunity to keep up to them; WAYS TOO MANY

//SHOT

Thank you! :D *grins widely* Yeah well; it needs time for me to get that far, but I've made my portfolio and will go around companies soon to introduce myself ;P I wish to go through an internship first of course XD The only problem is my university; the guys from those companies do look at your skill level of course, but they are also searching for bitches working full-time xD As a student, attending classes, I can't afford that > m >;;

Lai: Just because I called you bunneh, it doesn't mean I am going to dance for you *chuckles* >P

You should carry around a small, roughly-palm sized notepad in that case, so when you get a good idea you can quickly scribble it down! :D

I don't know much about that sort of work industry but I'm guessing the chance of a casual position is very limited? Or none at all? :s I don't know much haha all the same, I hope you manage to do it! :la:

And Lai, I don't believe I asked you to dance but uhh... *smirks, sitting down with popcorn* Now that you bring it up, and since you INSISTED upon it...go ahead~ >D

I've got that one ;D Bought myself an inclinq from Wacom ;D *chuckles* DAT THING ROCKS XD
That's how I've made my Gian reff sheet (posted on tumblr some days ago), I am gonna upload the colored version of it here on dA *chuckles*

Well, the thing is.. it's a market. And every market has it's rules. You have to be mobile and improvise a lot; you have to be able to go with the flow but also push against it.. Complex in many ways; but there are some good money earning opportunities ^^ Through doing some commissions, I've already figured out how much time it takes me to do some special art / how much time a complex or simple sketch takes etc. :') Everything is sort of connected. The most important thing however always will be 'time'. As a student I can only afford a part-time job. I could get lucky with an internship there (if my classes are before lunch, I could totally work for the company afterwards; or the other way round); but those people are usually very.. let's say, compromise resistant XD

Lai: Very well.. *chuckles amused and stretches his shoulder slightly* *comes closer, nonchalant takes the popcorn out of your hand and puts it on the table beside you; heaves you up with his tail encircling the waist. Puts you down in front of him and puts both hands on your waist; twisting you around* Shall we begin? *charming wink; his face only millimeters away from yours; deep peer into your eyes*

I really love colored concept art; sketches are cool too, but nothing will ever be able to beat color! :D *hehehe*

Oh well; with turning 23 I need to get some serious thoughts punched into that direction, now don't I? xD *laughs* *tickles* ;P

Lai: *twists with her in tango* I won't let you go just yet *chuckles*
Somehow... I really want do draw a picture of you and him.. > w > ehehehehehehehehehehe

Hmmmmmmmmm...*sit at my desk and takes down notes* Clever Professor Yokufo. You lay down the colors then the shading then blend them. That makes it so much easier. And the the shinnin' and piercin' eyes are just...wow. Freakin' badazz!!

Oh myyy; you charming student! :D *grins widely and peers over your shoulder at your notes; nodding* Yes, this is quite easy that way; besides You have to set the skin layer to 'opacity lock', so you can color inside the form you've drawn ^____^
And thank you! heheeee >D I think he does enjoy being called badass XD

A bit. XD
I get the method, at least in the first panels, to make several layers of increasingly draker colors and then merge and blur.
Well, to be fair you never called it a tutorial! :D
To start with, which program you use?
