Photoshop CG tutorial :O by acaraluv Photoshop CG tutorial :O by acaraluv
Well, first of all, I'd like to apoligize for the veryvery large file size x_o

um, so some people were asking me to make a tutorial. And liek... I did. :3 it's not so good. Because a) I can't explain stuff very well :/ and b) it's my first tutorial D:
so I hope someone actually uses this. xD otherwise it was pretty much pointless to make it. and lykomgwtf, I don't always color like this. But its a lot easier to explain this way. x3
Full view is a must. D:

Edit+sorry if this appears in your inbox again, but there were a few typos. So I had to edit it xD

Edit2+haha, so someone noticed I mispelled 'tutorial' on the image xD and I'm suprized it wasn't pointed out until now. UGH. yeah, so I had to change it. Sorry if it appears in your inbox again. No need to recomment~!

I've read many of your tutorials and I really like this one. I have a couple of questions though..

1.Does this tutorial work for Adobe photoshop elements 3.0?
2. For the coloring part, why do you have to seperate the wings,ears,paws,tail into it's own layer? Why not keep it on one?

3. Why do you need to do the expanding selection option?

and finally...

4. What happens to the layer when you lock it?

Sorry for all the bombarding questions, thanks alot! :3
farooza Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2011
2. You have to seperate it so that its easier to shade. you see, if you do all the colouring in one layer, then when shading and stuff like that the colors might mix up.
4. When you lock the layer, for example, if you lock the wings layer, then when you do the shading on that particular layer, the only thing that will get shaded will be the wings. you see, by locking, you are locking the colors on the particular place, not allowing it to go anywhere else.

kazema Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2006
You use Photoshop 7.0? Me too. (^_^) And my mouse cost $15... It's a bit small... but lighter than the heavy old expensive mouse I've ever use on the home desktop... (*_*)

And I think I can use this tutorial for just a preference... In case I forget...

OMG! If I forget what my teacher taught me in Photoshop, she might not forgive me... Because she sees great potential in me... (*_*) And to think those bastards in Secondary school have faith in me...

...Mouse! Tablet! Mouse! Tablet!

I hate the fact that GIMP kills all my layers. Oh well, back to Photoshop it is, then.
