Omocha's Mega Cell Shading Step by Step by ZenithOmocha Omocha's Mega Cell Shading Step by Step by ZenithOmocha
1. I know I twisted her pose too much, and her right leg looks like it's broken. :"D But this is not a pose tutorial, so focus on the coloring and other things, ok? ^^/

2. I made a little mistake while typing: On the last picture before Step3, I said 'put them all in one layer'. It should be 'put them all in one folder' there.

And thank you all for the support. ^^/

Warning: Super duper giant file. OTL

As I was asked by some people to make some kind of tutorials. So this is one way of coloring I can show you.

I don't want to make too many deviations at a time so, please be patient with this long ass 'Step by step'.OTL

And here is the bigger finished version of the picture:

I hope it helps somehow. ;n;a

I will try working on some other styles' step by step, if there are requests in the future. /o/

This was really helpful, but it's uber complicated! I can't wrap my head around the whole shading thing! 

Oh well, at least I learned some helpful tricks on SAI.

I have a question; For the step when you just begin to shade, you called it a "layer clip". Do you happen to know what it would be called in photoshop?
ZenithOmocha Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2014
If you right click on a layer that's above another, there should be an option that's called 'Create clipping mask'. I use Photoshop CS3.

oh ok thanks you a bunch! I found it :D
I was also wondering what color you use for shading? I'm trying a bunch of different ones but I cant figure out which one xD

I think I explained it quite clearly in the tutorial. Basically it doesn't matter much since with this method you will recolor the shading layer anyway.
