ok. heres a post for tutorials. everyones always looking for tutorials and i promise it wont hurt anyone to look over these. please dont copy them, but use them for ideas.

how to draw portraits
aphrodisiac you need to be 'of age' for this one and have proof of age but theres awesome tutorials if you get on.
tutorials the tutorials i always post. with the good hair/fur/cloud/etc tutorials
online comic artist directory tons and tons of art sites with tons and tons of tutorials. go digging.
the art corner tutorials
drawing the portrait
anatomy - kickass anatomy site einz posted a while back (its down a lot but worth it..) [admin note: fixed link]
julie dillons tutorials thread - a giant thread on a forum with more tutorials than ive ever seen.

page of generators generators for inspiration that ponpoko posted a while ago.

edit: 12/12/04 (new)
lackofsubstance tutorials - one there from Serena. who used to draw here now and then.
OpenCanvas tutorial - ok so we dont have a opencanvas applet. but the concepts still work the same. would be around the same process. just different tools.
deviantart tutorials - a bunch of tutorials for everything under the sun. fill your boots.
neoterranean \"digital coloring\" - another "how to color" tutorial

and finally some color theroy.

ok. so if those dont occupy you for a long time, feel free to post more links in reply to this. but make sure they dont suck.

(p.s. for the record i think tutorials are bad and copying other peoples styles.. go run out and stare at REAL references and draw from then. that theres real art. and badder grammar..)

whaa thanks!!
hm, what you say about style-copying is true and idd looking at pictures is probably the best learning proces...but then it's kind of usefull/necessery to get comments (serious-ones) because else you (i) tend to oversee your (my) own mistakes,
i can't seem to work out good anatomy on my i hope tutorial will help
bluesky (Nov 28, 2003)
WOW that's a bunch and no doubt - i've already spent quite some time at looking through these! thanks! they'll occupy me for a while alright... thanks again! and i totally agree with the anatomy thing; i probably need help on that... tutorials, ahh...

Somewhere on this site, I had a tutorial where it showed you how to get lineart off of sketches on PSP. Does anybody know, or still has this link? The only time I need it is when I don't have it...
mazi (Jan 27, 2005)
anyone posting on beginner should think about glancing through some of these. theres always new people on this site and not all of you are producing pictures up to your full potential. actually try your hardest on one picture and see how well you can do. these tutorials are here to give you some new ideas and some insight into how some people draw. read at least some of them, or death to you all.

StrawberryYamichan (Apr 7, 2005)
thank you very much for these tutorials. i'm sure they will help me for when i actually try to use a reference picture :D again, thanks very much!
Chiyo-chan (Apr 30, 2005)
I have a question... how do you shade?
Zack (Apr 30, 2005)
There's at least a dozen different styles for shading. Which do you mean?
Chiyo-chan (Apr 30, 2005)
Umm... I don't know. What kind are there? ><
Zack (Apr 30, 2005)
To name a few, there's cell-shading, soft pastel-like shading, watercolor-like shading, oilpaint-like shading, and photorealistic shading. Look through a few of the tutorials above, some of them go over shading.
TRIP (Apr 30, 2005)
Aww, why does everyone just multiply their lineart layer in photoshop? You cant use transparency and color differences in your lineart that way :/ I think I'll write up a short for isolating lineart on its own layer so options like 'preserve transparency' can come into play.
Xodiak (Apr 30, 2005)
For a start, pick a big sized brush and paint your sketch on the edges of their outlines of a certain direction, for instance the left. Pick a colour of a slightly darker shade than the colour underneath. It is not a good tutorial, but it is the quickest. >:)
Chiyo-chan (May 1, 2005)
Thank you so much XOD! I'll try! ^^

Here's one that I just looked at: Painter 7 tutorial.
Now you may ask why did I just post a Painter 7 tutorial, especially when that is not what you use here on the site? Well, it gives some great examples of shading and blending afterwards, and I'm now inspired to mess with stuff like this. So here you go.

This is a start to finish tutorial, so it's pretty good in general.

That is so interesting..thanks

how do i add font in oekaki??!...and how do i change the font colour and stuff?
Nightmare (Aug 17, 2006)
Use the font tool. Change the color like you would the brush color by using the color palette.
poison_ivy (Aug 17, 2006)
thanks ...i appreciate it....

Shanghai (edited Jan 19, 2007)
I suppose I can, a little later

the list from the first post is there, but not any of the other sites posted in this thread yet. Since it's been a couple years, some of these sites are gone now.
cmb (Mar 9, 2007)

Dr.Snoopy (Mar 9, 2007)
This only works with Oekaki Shi-Painter.
Not sure if Marcello has planned the same feature for Lascaux Sketch
cmb (Mar 11, 2007)

Is really annoying on this site. lol
dorothyblueeyes (edited Apr 28, 2015)
maybe if the site were moderated, and maintained, we would not go without anti-spamming systems. But that's all over, so get used to the spam, davinci.
buffaww (Feb 11, 2021)
