Photoshop Tutorial

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 29, 2013, 4:03 AM
Hey my little deerlings!

Remember that photoshop tutorial I mentioned long time ago I would do?
Well! I finally decided to start doing something about it! Last night, I wrote down a list of things I would like to talk about in it and I would like to tell you what I have planned. Because this will be multiple part tutorial, I won't be doing only one, but 3 or even 4 different tutorials.

Here are what I was planning to talk about in each part.

Part 1 - Getting to know Photoshop! Tips, tools and Tricks.

In this part, I would pretty much introduce you to photoshop and the tools that I use the most. I would teach you some of the most helpful tools and their shortcuts. Some words about layers and how to use them. And maybe something about filters and adjustments.

This is obviously not that important if you are already quite familiar with photoshop but you might learn something new. The main reason though is to make you familiar with some of the tools so I don't have to explain them in later parts.

Part 2 - General drawing tips.

I might put this together with part one... Depends how long it gets. But here I would tell you some tips on how to start and some pose and general drawing advices.

Part 3 - Lineart

Now here the main thing starts! Here, I show how I make my lineart. We would be concentrating on this style, but the same tips I give here can be used in ANY lineart style.

Part 4 - Coloring + Finishing touches.

And the last part! Here I would show how I color my works. And maybe some finishing touches.


Also, I can't promise this but I would LOVE to make video tutorials going along these. It's one thing to write about these but seeing how it's done is also something else! I would love to do real time videos of me sketching, drawing and coloring one simple work so you get the idea how I work. Remember, I can't promise this but I'll do my best to get the video versions too. They would be like those speedpainting videos people do in youtube. Except, without the speed. I want you to be able to see and follow what I do.

I hope you really like this! And now I need to start working on this! Now that I wrote this journal, I really can't back off. ^^;

I've had Photoshop for about a year now, It's just so complicated. This will be great, your drawing style & the way your pictures look is definitely the way I'd want mine to be. AND now that you've written this journal, you can't really back off! :juggle:

P.S. :cd: Have you heard this one yet?

Hehe, I've been wanting to do a tutorial again for a long time. Starting is always the hardest part. :XD:

And thanks! This is a great tune. Glitch makes great remixes.

Aw man, this will be fantastic! I've had Photoshop for quite some time now and whenever I open it up, it blows my mind. I'm so used to working with GIMP (lol, my wonderful knockoff program that costs nothing) I'm just not used to the complexity of it all. So in advance, thank you for doing this! It'll certainly help a TON of people!~

Nice to hear that. And haha! Yeah, I have the same thing when I open my Flash or After Effects. I wish I could find some simple starter tutorials for them. :)

I'll try to do my best when making the first tutorial and talk about things I would like to know when starting to learn a new program.

Really? Intimidated by Flash? Looks complicated but it's really a no-brainer once you're familiar with Photoshop, same goes for After Effects (Plus, being able to turn a toy lightsaber battle into a real one or making kamehamehas was enough to keep me motivated enough to learn to use it xD)

A fun idea might be to try using Livestream when you start working on the tutorial videos; you'll be able to record what you're doing, how you're doing it, and answer some questions on the fly in the process.

And the videos, in turn, could be uploaded onto youtube or such. =3
