Waffle-y Tutorial by tubenose Waffle-y Tutorial by tubenose
as the title says, its a bit waffle-y :|

this is kinda long so my apologies to those using dial-up but i did not want to post twice on DA.
here are smaller versions though Part one and Part two they're around 600K still but at least its a bit smaller.

a very special thanks goes to these two for alot of their help they've always been there for me :giggle:

and check out *augustc4's SPICY BRUSH TUTORIAL for a great indepth look on how to use brushes, short-cuts and other stuff :)


thank you to those who've been really interested in how I create my stuff :wave: you've been the inspiration for this.


Check out Wings of Fire for the (somewhat) finished version :floating:

lol the tut was here for years?? but I found it 2 years ago via google and it leads me MR instead of this page :O. Maybe you should give the lead title "digital painting tutorial waffle-y process". the first three words will be taken by google/yahoo search bots.

haha yeah man, i posted it here before MR :XD:

I'm not entirely sure why google posted the MR one as the more "popular" one, but you maybe right about the title. Not that it matters anymore since MR's gone. lol

Anyways, I think I should update with a new tutorial someday.

Wow...just wow...I wish I could draw like that...unfortunately I suck at drawing...and at colouring my art...

But I'm learning. 8D Thanks for this tutorial, it's too...umm...what's a word for it...more professional? o.o To what I'm doing right now...I'm only learning how to shade and use the pen tool, but once I get better your tutorial will come in handy!

The only brushes ive used are the ones mentioned in my tutorial. The more solid brush is for solid colors. The Airbrush is for blending in the colors.

I really enjoy your tutorials. They're very helpful. I was wondering if it's weird for you to sketch on tablet vs paper?
The tablet always feels too smooth and I end up slipping all over the place... And do you sketch > scan > "PC Color" or do you usually do everything on the PC?

:icontubenose:
tubenose Featured By Owner May 2, 2007
oh thank you! ^__^

Actually it really did feel very weird to sketch on a tablet because it gets very "squiggly" when you draw, but now i just find it more troublesome to sketch and scan then clean up. I guess it depends really, you can never replace the old paper drawing skill and effect. I paint over most of my sketches anyways so i suppose it doesnt really bother if my sketches are clean or rough :D lol.

But yep, 95% of the time I do everything on the PC. Every now and then though, i still draw and sketch on regular paper, and if i really like the sketch that much, i end up scanning it :XD: lol.

aw thank you kindly ^^ well, it took me a while to put the stuff together but it was all worth it, especially hearing people say that they've learned something new from it :D

Oh, traditional is good too! but of course, I wouldnt be well versed in it. I admire artists who still create traditional art. Its a hard thing to master really.

I know im annoying, and i alredy said something, but i must know, do you use the smudge tool at all?
Reply

tubenose Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2007
ah it's alright :)

I actually use the smudge tool 95% only with hair. I rarely use it with the rendering for the skin and other elements.

I use a 4x6 sized tablet. Im not certain if there would be any considerable difference regarding the size but as far as im concerned, mine works just fine :)

Oh and thank you so much! ^^

You must have a ridiculously steady hand to be able to do this the way you do - and so well. I'm glad this tutorial exists, very glad, because despite the fact that I've got a wrist like the San Andreas Fault, some of the ideas you pointed out will aid me greatly.

You win. :nod:

"I've got a wrist like the San Andreas Fault" :laughing: comparative description i've read in months! you win.

Actually, its very challenging to draw a steady line with a tablet. I've even heard that if you're too close to your monitor, the lines would get very squigly, which is actually the case with this one. You just can't see it because its far away.

And im very glad you've enjoyed the tutorial! ^_^ thank you so much for the kind words!

By too close to the monitor do you mean like face-glued-up-against-screen or just the tablet too close or whatnot?
Reply
:icontubenose:
tubenose Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2007
ah pretty much both. I suppose similar as how if you placed the monitor on a conventional table, you would most likely place the keyboard right in front of the monitor. That distance pretty much.

Very thurough and enlightneing for me. I am trying to branch out into not using outlines. I have done so very few full painting peices. I get scared about going over my lines because I fear I loose placements...like eyes, noses, etc.

This will be of great help to me. Thanks. :D

thanks so much! Im happy you found it useful!

I completely understand what you meant about being scared to venture into painting over lines. It was like that for me the first time around as well but im pretty happy with what ive learned from all the trial and errors :D

I love this tutorial! So few tutorials show a large, complicated piece from the sketch to completions, so this is very helpful. I especially liked the way you kept your lineart, but dialed it down and the shadowplay. Thank you for creating this, it will be so helpful!
