Lapres' Cell Shade Tutorial by Lapres Lapres' Cell Shade Tutorial by Lapres
++ Big file... full view >_>! ++

First off, forgive any spelling errors. I wrote it in Photoshop and I should be in bed, but I really wanted to get this done!

I hope this helps anyone who is curious how to cell shade, or just wanted to see how I do my work. Understandably this is a tutorial on a male Tauren (from World of Warcraft) and not on a human, but I'll try to get a human one done in the future.

If you'd like to see the finished image, please go to: [link]

:< Hope this helps.

- Val Val

This taught me a lot about Cell Shading even if I find that PS disagrees with me I believe I can carry the basics over to SAI. Thank you for creating such a lovely tutorial to help others :tighthug:

Yeah, I'm pretty handy with photoshop, so I get a fairly decent idea of what's going from the pictures. But I found your explanations fine at any rate. =)

Cheers again!
