A page from “Incredible Comics” by Tom Nguyen. Heheh. Great book.
Wow. That’s really aiming at the Liefeld art style, complete with the scrunched up, angry face.
DON’T Liefeld. DO Anything Else.
I actually have this picture saved on my phone at all times so I can always explain to anyone what Liefeld is
Oh no it’s a COLOURING WALKTHROUGH
The last time I did one of these I felt it was inadequate because all I did was flip through the layers of a completed piece. So this time I took screenshots as I drew!
- This is only my method for fast colouring; if I had, say, metallic objects, or fur to colour I would likely paint it with none of the shadows layer masking business, which seems to work best on objects that aren’t particularly shiny.
- If you look at the timestamps, apparently I took about an hour an a half to colour this.
- Smoothing out the shadows was done with a hard round brush with flow and opacity controls turned on. (it’s a default brush.)
- Your flat colours are the most important part of this process - the layer adjustments trick will save you from having to pick a second round of colours for shadows manually, but if your flats aren’t up to scratch the whole piece will suffer. Make sure your colour scheme works here before moving to shading.
Finished product can be found here. I hope this is helpful!
Some of these may be in the wrong category. Some may need to be in another category! Do tell me (through my ask box) if I need to change or add something! Have fun looking through these accounts!
Crappy color/shading tutorial/stock thing for my friend Izu.
Trying to get her away from more muddy hues to sharp contrast and varied schemes.

This is Jack Hamm’s entire section on folds, minus a page that was repetitive so I ditched it to fit the photoset limit. If you guys like, I’ll scan more of his stuff from time to time, I have been trying to get everyone on board with him forever!
To reiterate, these scans are from Jack Hamm’s Drawing The Head And Figure.
So, after years of visiting possibly the greatest art resource online, Gurney Journey (website of the creator of the gorgeous Dinotopia series, as well as numerous amazing drawing/painting books. Seriously this guy is INCREDIBLE LOOK AT HIS BLOG), I got this amazing poster promoting his latest book, Color and Light.
But I am vary rarely in one place long enough to look at the glorious thing on my wall, so I compiled a digital version.
You can buy his wonderful books here, but as far as I know the poster isn’t available in his store :<
Edit - Higher res. cause Tumblr.
The first one. With references.
Edit: some people have been asking me if i have any more tutorials, which is why i’m reblogging this again :D;;. Hope you guys don’t mind ^^;
whenever i see tutorials like this i just think to myself ‘hand porn’
because when you get into drawing a bunch of nice hands you just sit back like aw yeah
those are some nice hands
some damn nice hands
simple reference tools make a great amount of difference.
Hey kids! If you’re a filmmaker, animator, or storyboard artist and you don’t know what screen direction is, you might want to read this.
For the record, there are always exceptions to the rule in filmmaking, which is why I pointed out 3 examples here.
I’ve also found that comic books tend to NOT take screen direction as seriously as film does, but I’m still on the fence if this is wise or not. My favorite comics pay close attention to screen direction so as to not confuse the reader.
every time this is on my dash i have to stare at it for forever because wiiiiiiings
