Frick it's huge. I apologize.

I said I'd show a step-by-step some time ago, but I kept forgetting to take periodic screenshots whenever I drew. So finally I remembered. Here you go. I tried to show brush settings and stuff in there.

(Picture is Gintama :3)

Sorry, I don't want to do a tutorial or livestream, please don't ask x:

If you have other questions, ask in a comment and I'll answer it here in the description. Thanks!

Q: How long did it take?
A: Around 3 hours.

Q: What's the last step?
A: The grayish layer is a multiply, the blue one is an overlay.

Q: What brush sizes did you use?
A: I used a 4px for lineart here. The one for coloring just depends on what I'm trying to shade. I use the hard-edged round brush.

Q: What size is the original canvas?
A: It was around 4000x2000px.

Q: What program is this?
A: Photoshop CS3.

Q: Did you use mouse or tablet?
A: I used a Wacom Cintiq 12wx tablet here.

Q: How did you fill in colors? Do you erase the excess?
A: I use a combination of magicwand>paintbucket, and the brush tool. If it's excess skin color, I just cover it up later with a hair layer on top, and clothing over that even later.

Q: Why is stuff flipped sometimes?
A: I do it to check how the picture looks and sometimes because it's easier for me to draw facing one way or the other.

I have a question, because the tutorials (of other people) never tell.
How do you know where the shadows go? Do you just guess an d try or do you study actual shadows when people make those poses?

I have a hard time figuring out the light ^^;

Some shadows are more straightforward, i.e. if you have a light directly above a cow, the cow's body is going to block the light from hitting the ground below, but for more complex things like where the light hits on the round cow, or how the light reflects off the grass below, etc, you need to study how light works. Artists ARE guessing the shadows when they draw, unless they're copying directly from a live reference, but it's an educated guess based on what they know about lighting. If you guess at random without any knowledge at all, it'll come out ridiculous.

Okay, I always wondered.
I'll try and study it, just looking during an average day must work right?
Thanks for taking the time to answer me!

Oh man!

I wish I can get a hang of Photoshop!

Photoshop tends to make things totally easier.
