Digital art: good to know/tutorials PART_1

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 25, 2013, 6:13 AM

Hey, hey cupcakes! :tighthug:

PART_2 ! General

So... this is the first part in featuring some extremely useful tutorials which can be found on DA (and some from off-site as well). This one isn't limited on digital art only, but the rest will be. I wanted to post everything in one journal, but theres 200 thumbnail limit, sooo yeah :XD: I decided to divide everything in following categories: sketching/referencing/anatomy etc, General, blending, steps, color, perspective/Composition/value, Walkthrough, nose, hair, skin, photoshop/wacom, brushes, eyes, lips, textures, ears, fabric/clothes, environment, misc (how to paint water, fire, rocks, rain, clouds, pearls etc. ). This one is about Sketching/referencing/anatomy etc.. In every journal I will also include some interesting videos that I think you should check out :nod: And, if you know about some tutorials that can be helpful to other artists, note me, thank you :heart:
Ppl who suggested a few tuts: Yodon, RetSamys, DonguriArt ty :heart:
