Hey there...

I'm Arianne.

Welcome to my (mostly fan)art blog...enjoy your stay.

Commission Info

I’m so glad you like my art! Here’s my general process:

image

First I do a basic sketch (I personally prefer doing pencil sketches, but you can do this step digitally  if you’d like).

image

Lineart!

imageSlap on a background color (at this point, the specific hue doesn’t matter; just use a color that defines the general tone of your piece).

image

Flat color with some minor shading (under lineart).

image

Add a bit more shade and blend some bits together.

image

Better define your shapes with some shading and lighting.

image

Overlay a color to bring the colors more together (it’s best to use something close to your background color). Fuse overlay with colored layer. NOTE: You should alter the opacity of the overlay layer until it looks nice to you.

image

Fuse the lineart and colored layers together, Use the same color as before but on luminosity instead of overlay. Fuse luminosity layer with your lineart/colored layer. NOTE: Same as before with the opacity thing.

image

Use the same color AGAIN, but with screen instead. Again, fuse the two layers when the color is to your satisfaction. NOTE: Opacity…yeah…

image

This effect is for specifically this piece, but if you want to add shading or lighting to a background you should use overlay with some opacity adjustments

image

Just clean it up a bit and add some more details.

image

More clean up.

image

EVEN MORE CLEAN UP.

image

Make the shading/lighting more distinct with overlay.

image

Add a paper texture, adjust the colors, and you’re done!

I know this tutorial isn’t incredibly detailed, but if you need help on any specific step, I’d be happy to help!
